A Day in the HVAC Trenches: Adventures of a Farley & Hysaw Technician

Rise and Shine: The Early Bird Catches the Cool Air

My alarm blares at 5:30 AM, and I’m up before the sun. As a technician at Farley & Hysaw, I know that early mornings are crucial in the world of air conditioning repair. After a quick breakfast and coffee, I’m out the door by 6:15 AM, ready to face the sweltering Tuscal heat.

First Stop: Emergency Call

My first job of the day is an emergency call from a distressed homeowner whose AC unit gave up the ghost overnight. As I arrive, I’m greeted by a family fanning themselves with anything they can find. Time to put my skills to work!

The Diagnosis

After a thorough inspection, I discover:

  • A worn-out capacitor
  • Low refrigerant levels
  • A clogged air filter

I explain the issues to the homeowner and get to work. Within an hour, cool air is flowing again, and I’m rewarded with grateful smiles and a cold glass of lemonade.

Midday: Routine Maintenance

The rest of my morning is filled with scheduled maintenance appointments. As a licensed AC service technician, I know that prevention is key. I check:

  • Refrigerant pressures
  • Electrical connections
  • Thermostat functionality
  • Condenser and evaporator coils

Lunch Break: Refuel and Recharge

Around 1 PM, I take a quick break to grab a sandwich and review my afternoon schedule. The Farley & Hysaw dispatch team has lined up three more calls for me.

Afternoon: Troubleshooting and Education

My afternoon is a mix of troubleshooting complex issues and educating homeowners on proper AC maintenance. I love sharing tips on how to extend the life of their units and improve energy efficiency.

End of Day: Wrapping Up

As the sun begins to set, I finish my last call of the day. It’s been a long one, but knowing that I’ve helped keep Tuscal residents cool and comfortable makes it all worthwhile. I head back to the Farley & Hysaw office to file my reports and prep for another day of HVAC adventures.

Being a part of the Farley & Hysaw team means commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction. As I drive home, I reflect on the day’s challenges and successes, ready to do it all again tomorrow in the world of air conditioning repair and service.
