A/C maintenance can be crazy

The other day was a bit of a disturbing one for me, as I genuinely got injured on the job at work.

I do not have any fear when it comes to performing heating as well as cooling repairs, as It’s something I’ve been doing for a long time now.

So when I was told that I would have to do some maintenance on an a/c unit that was on a rooftop, I didn’t think anything of it. I’ve done something like that millions of times, and so I was more than ready to go up on a high seven story roof to change the a/c units. Of course, not all the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C devices are up high. However, when you’ve been doing the Heating and cooling industry as long as I have, I’m sure you’ve done this a lot of times and it is easy. As far as I was concerned, it was just another normal afternoon. I climbed up to the very peak of the roof and everything was totally okay, and I had brought up my red toolbox to repair the a/c unit. It started when I was working my way back down the ladder to the floor when my foot slipped, and I nearly fell off the tall ladder. I just slipped a tiny bit and I completely flopped to the side and almost fell off. Everything was wet and slippery because it had been raining recently, and I am so grateful that I didn’t fall off the roof. Even when I was walking around up top, my shoes kept sliding and so I had to be extra careful. Luckily, when I barely slipped going down that ladder, I was able to grab myself and stop myself from falling to the ground. On the rest of the way down, I kept a strong grip on the ladder and I was so careful when carrying the tools. I made it down just fine, and the woman got a good working Heating, Ventilation, and A/C device once again.
