Why pursue a HVAC career?
Why Aim High HVAC?
When I finished my eight years in the United States Air Force in 1991 I flat out got lucky. I happened to be looking for temporary work until a job opened up at a major airline as an aircraft electrician. A friend gave me an address to go talk to a guy that owned a refrigeration company and may be looking for help. He hired me on the spot for way less money then I could support my family on and no benefits. This is something that has never changed. HVAC and all trades are always searching for help, preferably with experience. The airline job did open up. The problem was I fell in love with service work. I had just spent 8 years of my life serving and this new career just felt comfortable to me. I had great training in advanced electrical and knew nothing about refrigeration. I was so lucky to work for a company that was a serious service provider and I learned to be a real technician. The problem they had was they really had no training procedures, paid very poorly, and were never going to provide benefits. This was a major problem for me because I had a young family to provide a living and a future for. I stuck with them until I was able to get my license and start a business of my own.
I’m proud to say that when I started my own company and started to grow, I immediately provided a fair wage and employee benefits. The sad thing to me, in the HVAC world, many companies don’t give the same opportunity now to train true trades people. The focus is mainly in sales and sales compensation to lure people into the trades. Just read the help wanted, it’s mostly sales compensation focused. I’ve actually had service people with experience interview and ask what their cut is. The simple answer is, we don’t rob people. We serve our customer, pay fair, and provide awesome benefits. And, we have a great team to work with.

After 30 years of doing this as an install, maintenance, and service business, I understand how to train and provide a career opportunity to someone looking become successful in the HVAC world. I will never have a company that pushes my technician to just sell products or equipment. I want like minded people that want to serve and provide for a great future in the trades. This has made Aim High a successful and growing company.
