A Day in the Life: Keeping Oregon Cool with Milwaukie Heating & Cooling

Rise and Shine: The Life of an HVAC Technician

As the sun peeks over the horizon in Clackamas, OR, I’m already up and preparing for another busy day with Milwaukie Heating & Cooling. My name is Jake, and I’ve been working as an HVAC technician for the past five years. Today, I’ll take you through a typical day in my life, servicing air conditioners and keeping our customers comfortable.

6:30 AM: The Day Begins

I start my day with a strong cup of coffee and a quick check of my schedule. Today, I have appointments in Happy Valley, West Linn, and Lake Oswego. It’s going to be a busy one!

8:00 AM: First Stop – AC Service in Happy Valley

My first appointment is a routine AC service in Happy Valley. The homeowner has been diligent about maintenance, so it’s a straightforward job. I clean the coils, check the refrigerant levels, and ensure everything is running smoothly.

10:30 AM: HVAC Installation in West Linn

Next up is a full HVAC installation in West Linn. This is a more involved process, requiring careful planning and execution. I work with my team to:

  • Remove the old system
  • Install the new unit
  • Connect and test all components
  • Explain the new system to the homeowner

2:00 PM: Emergency Air Conditioner Repair in Lake Oswego

After a quick lunch break, I receive an urgent call about a malfunctioning AC unit in Lake Oswego. The summer heat is unforgiving, so I rush to the location. After diagnosing the issue, I discover a faulty capacitor. Luckily, I have the part on hand and can fix it on the spot.

5:00 PM: Wrapping Up in Oregon City

My final stop of the day is in Oregon City for an air conditioning installation consultation. I discuss options with the homeowner, take measurements, and provide an estimate for the job.

7:00 PM: Back to Base

As I return to the Milwaukie Heating & Cooling office, I reflect on another fulfilling day of helping our community stay cool and comfortable. I update my reports, restock my truck, and prepare for tomorrow’s adventures.

Working for Milwaukie Heating & Cooling is more than just a job – it’s about making a difference in people’s lives, one HVAC system at a time.
