National HVAC Tech Day - 5 Ways to Show AppreciationWith the days heating up, June 22nd is a perfect day for National HVAC Tech Day!
Why should we show appreciation for our HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) Technicians?
Though a variety of home heating and cooling techniques have existed since ancient times, central heating and air as we know it was born in the early 1900s. New inventions like the residential air conditioner and advances in older technologies, such as the thermostat and blower-equipped furnaces, gave Americans greater control over their indoor comfort than ever before.
This newfound power was more than a luxury; it shaped the growth of the country. Sun Belt cities with triple-digit summer temperatures became much more attractive places to live and vacation, once AC was more widely adopted on the 1960s.
Today, many of us take the indoor comfort for granted. But it’s the technicians who keep our HVAC systems running, day and night. If that’s not reason enough to show them a little love, here are a few more: Click here!
Here are just a few ways to show your favroite HVAC tech some much deserved appreciation!
1. Treat them to a nice meal, whether it’s with breakfast to begin their day, a potluck lunch, or with reservations at a restaurant.
2. Remind our HVAC Technicians about everything they do for us and society through thank you cards and handwritten notes:
- Thank you for helping us live comfortably in our own homes, schools, and work buildings all year long.
- Thank you for being there when we need you anytime, day or night.
- Thank you for working in extreme heat and cold to ensure I don’t have to.
3. Create “HVAC Pro Goodie Bags” including items a HVAC pro out in the field could find useful every day:
- Reusable water bottle
- Granola Bars
- Small bottle of sunscreen
- Small portable fan
- Cooling Towel
4. Take care of your home’s HVAC system! Change your air filter when recommended, insulate your home, or schedule an HVAC tune-up. Your HVAC tech will appreciate these precautions, and it will make his or her job and your life easier!
5. Recommend your favorite HVAC Pro to your family and friends or give them a 5 star review online! Nothing shows appreciation more than speaking highly of someone’s hard work.Without HVAC Techs, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the comfort of air conditioning on those blistering hot summer days, or the coziness of our heating systems in the frigid cold winter.
