At Hunton Group, we encourage employees to engage in improving themselves and their community through health, safety, giving, and outreach initiatives. We channel this energy in our “Hunton Cares” Program that serves as an umbrella brand of internal and external communications and charitable initiatives. “Hunton Cares” not only represents our support of our employees mental and physical well-being, it promotes philanthropy and extends our core values of being kind, passionate, and real outside of the organization.
Did you know that June 22 is National HVAC Technician Day? Since June 21st is the first official day of summer, it is a perfect time to show our appreciation for our highly skilled, hardworking HVAC technicians that keep you and I cool and comfortable even on the hottest of summer days. Across all our divisions, we have just over 200 technicians!
During the summer, HVAC techs are working in attics and roof tops that are 120 degrees or hotter. This can be very dangerous; HVAC technicians must know how to keep themselves hydrated and avoid heat stroke to do their job of keeping us cool (dive deeper by reading Hunton Cares blog post, “Working in Hot Weather”).
An HVAC Technician job is anything but routine and predictable. Rather than going into the same office every day, an HVAC Technician may find themselves traveling all over the city and beyond. Every day, HVAC Techs are going to new places, meeting new people, problem solving, and facing new challenges.
HVAC Technicians find ways to help people stay safe and comfortable in buildings and in homes.
This often means that an HVAC Technician job does not just happen during the 9-5 Monday through Friday work week. Technicians are typically on call at all hours to make sure their customers are happy and helping in emergencies.
Here is what one of our highly trained technicians had to say, “I love being a technician because it gives me the opportunity to help others and troubleshoot issues to solve problems. I really enjoy the comradery of working with our group to accomplish specific goals and tasks.” – Ty P.
Lastly, a word from Kris Hardin, the President, and General Manager of Hunton Services, “Our technicians are the heart and soul of this business. Their dedication to our customers, their loyalty, their willingness to go the extra mile, and their teamwork do not go unnoticed. We appreciate them every day.”
