The seasonality of the air-conditioning business creates huge problems for many technicians. The biggest of these problems is being laid off when the season slows down. It has been estimated that 30% of the residential air-conditioning workforce will be laid off during seasonal slow times. This creates a huge strain for the technician and increases reputation problems for our industry. As a technician, you must deal with the fact that there is seasonality in this business.
3 Ways to Guarantee Your Employment After Summer
The goal of this blog and video is to help you stay employed during the slower seasons.

Callbacks are typically a byproduct of poor communication and technical skills. If you want to reduce your callbacks, then you must do the following:

Nobody likes a pain in the a…, anatomy. This means you have to become responsible for your human interactions with your clients and your teammates. One of the ways to reduce your PITA factor is to learn to manage the items that are inside your control.
