Do you primarily do repair, installation, or maintenance work?
I am about to finish my associates degree in Stationary Engineering, was curious as to the nature of work everyone here does? How much of your workload is repair, and how much is new installations, say, in a month? I was planning on focusing on repair, but am not really sure how much of the work is repair. Thanks!
Commercial and industrial work
1/4 maintenance (quarterly PM's)
1/4 install (start ups/controls)
Just talked to an old time incinerator/boiler operator, retired from the military and now works at a large hospital.Very interesting work, didnt like the brickwork stories tho. Or the burning of documents and etc.

I think with the economy, there is going to be more service/repair since people are short on cash.
I do about half service and half install.
70 %-New Commercial
10 %-commercial retro
10 %-new residential
05 %-residential retro

Reason: bad math
It all depends on what you want to focus on...or what the company you work for will focus on. I have worked for a company who has a ton of service and not a lot of new install. But I have also worked for a company who does a lot of install and hardly no service. So it really all depends.
