Upon retiring from the heating & a/c business as a certified heat & a/c specialist I decided to do a little side thing as a activity & way to bring in some extra cash in addition to our pension.
I decided on repairing portable heating & a/c component & window a/c’s. When I first started I didn’t think if it was going to work or not. But lucky for me that it did end up actually laboring out. I have our own small little side business going. You would be surprised how several people in our local area have issues with their portable space heaters, portable air conditioners & on chance there are those who still use window air conditioners for certain rooms & have concerns with them too. They all end up coming to me. This isn’t an everyday thing, maybe a few times a week I will get purchasers. But it is pretty steady. I don’t make much money, only a few hundred bucks here & there. I do not charge high prices because after all, they could certainly go out & buy a new portable a/c plan or portable space gas furnace for cheaper. So the method was to make it affordable to have it repaired by me rather than going out & buying brand new portable space gas gas furnaces or portable air conditioners. It is a nice little side activity in our retirement here & gives me some extra money to take the partner out to a nice breakfast once a week!
