    Just curious on a typical day how many calls do you run?

    On a typical day, how many calls are you scheduled for? We do about 6-7. That's hopping! How bout you folks?

    That also depends on the problem at each call hopefully quick and easy

    5-6 usually, but we spread over the city of Louisville, East End to West End is easily 30 minutes one way.

    Awesome! I thought I was just overworked. Nope, just lazy.

    Any where from one to seven, depending on where and type of call. I would never be scheduled for more than three or four. I do mostly commercial, some residential.

    That's resi work though. It's less common to get a real challenging problem. Same for light commercial.

    Sometimes resi has its moments. I went from industrial to resi, and yeah sometimes it's monotonous but on occasion you get a head scratcher. I will tell you this, I never thought I would miss crawling around a mill, but when I am in a really filthy basement sometimes I do.😖

    I do very little resi but I bet the higher end homes are not easy. Around here I know guys that do 40-50k on some homes. There has to be complicated systems in there, no?

    I agree, there can certainly be challenging and unusual problems with residential and light commercial. Sometimes easy is nice. I had a particularly rough week dealing with a lot of ongoing, long-term, intermittent problems. I had a resi no heat and it was just a plugged pressure switch port on the inducer housing. It was really nice to go on a call with an easy fix. I do like the challenging calls though. Some of my frustrations this week were a steam generator at a YMCA that locks out daily, a modulating gas burner for an elementary school gym that locks out frequently, and a new 10 ton Trane precedent heat pump that thinks its a conventional AC.
