A Day in the Life of an HVAC Technician: Keeping Ivins Cool


Rise and Shine: The Early Bird Gets the Cool Air

As an employee at S & S Mechanical Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, my day starts bright and early. Today, I’m heading out to Ivins, UT, for an air conditioning installation job. The desert heat doesn’t mess around, so we make sure to get an early start.

7:00 AM: Morning Briefing

I arrive at the office for our daily team meeting. We discuss the day’s schedule, ongoing projects, and any special considerations for today’s installations. Safety is always our top priority, so we review proper procedures and equipment checks.

8:30 AM: On the Road to Ivins

With my truck loaded up with tools and supplies, I hit the road. The drive to Ivins gives me time to mentally prepare for the day ahead and enjoy the beautiful Utah landscape.

9:15 AM: Arrival and Assessment

Upon reaching the client’s home, I introduce myself and begin the initial assessment. This includes:

  • Evaluating the home’s layout
  • Discussing the client’s cooling needs
  • Determining the best location for the new AC unit
  • Checking existing ductwork

10:30 AM: HVAC Installation Begins

With the plan in place, I start the installation process. This involves:

  • Removing the old unit (if applicable)
  • Installing the new outdoor condenser unit
  • Setting up the indoor air handler
  • Connecting refrigerant lines
  • Wiring the electrical components

2:00 PM: Lunch Break

A quick break to refuel and hydrate is essential, especially in the Ivins heat.

2:30 PM: Finishing Touches

After lunch, I complete the installation by:

  • Testing the system
  • Calibrating the thermostat
  • Explaining system operation to the homeowner
  • Cleaning up the work area

4:30 PM: Wrapping Up

With the job complete and the client happily enjoying their new AC, I head back to the office to file my report and prepare for tomorrow’s adventures in HVAC.
