A Day in the Life: Reeves Heating & Cooling Technician

Morning Routine

My day starts bright and early at the Reeves Heating & Cooling office in Newton, Iowa. After grabbing a cup of coffee and checking the schedule, I load up my van with the necessary tools and supplies for the day’s jobs. The first stop is a routine furnace repair in Kellogg.

Furnace Repair

Upon arrival, I greet the homeowner and assess the situation. Their furnace isn’t kicking on, and they’ve been relying on space heaters to stay warm. After a thorough inspection, I diagnose the issue as a faulty ignitor. I quickly replace the part and ensure the furnace is operating safely and efficiently.

AC Service

Next up is an AC service call in Colfax. The homeowner has reported that their air conditioning unit isn’t cooling as well as it used to. I perform a comprehensive inspection, checking the refrigerant levels, cleaning the coils, and replacing the air filter. After making a few adjustments, the system is running like new, and the homeowner is thrilled with the improved performance.

Lunch Break

Around noon, I take a well-deserved lunch break and grab a quick bite to eat. It’s important to stay fueled up for the afternoon’s tasks ahead.

HVAC Installation

  1. In the afternoon, I head to Goddard for a new HVAC installation. The homeowners are building a new house and have chosen Reeves Heating & Cooling for their heating and cooling needs.
  2. I work closely with the construction crew to properly size and install the new system, ensuring it meets all building codes and energy efficiency standards.
  3. Once the installation is complete, I thoroughly test the system and provide the homeowners with a walkthrough, explaining how to operate and maintain their new HVAC system.

Heater Maintenance

The last stop of the day is in Monroe for a routine heater maintenance visit. I perform a comprehensive inspection, cleaning the burners, checking the electrical connections, and ensuring the system is operating safely and efficiently. I also provide the homeowner with tips on how to extend the life of their heater and save on energy costs.

Wrapping Up

As the day winds down, I head back to the Reeves Heating & Cooling office in Newton to restock my van and complete any necessary paperwork. It’s been a busy but rewarding day, knowing that I’ve helped keep families in the Newton, Kellogg, Colfax, Goddard, Monroe, and Reasnor areas comfortable and safe in their homes.
