Not the usual question probably posted in this sub-forum but I believe this could be beneficial for all the rock-star HVAC contractors and myself.
I currently work in IT but I'm working on a software capstone project for an online college I'm enrolled in. We have to basically find a problem and figure out how we can solve it by using software. The HVAC industry is quite interesting and from viewing a few posts already I can tell that there must be pain points that software could possibly solve. I give a big kuddo's to all of you in this industry because it seems way harder than anything I ever had to put up with in my short IT career.
Would really love any input regarding the questions below and I'll be sure to follow up and keep everyone involved and a part of whatever may or may not result from this convo. So here goes nothing (flame suit on):
Can you walk me through a typical day for you?
Whats the most painful task you have day-to-day?
What takes up most of your time?
What are you currently doing that frustrates you?
What tasks are you doing that you believe can be made easier or less tedious?
P.S. I emailed quite a few local HVAC companies along with a few calls but not surprisingly I didn't get much of a response. I think because there's no good way of emailing these places without sounding spammy or coming off as a sales call.
