I live in a small town. Population of about 10,000 in the winter,50,000 In the summer. There are about 5 heating contractors in the town now. Two of the 5 do good work, and I have worked for both of these contractors, actualy recruited by them. I have put thousands of furnaces in this small customer base, and take pride in my work.The problem I have with working for other people is it seems all of us HVAC are high srung from the stress that we deal with daily.I guess my question is what are some of the pro's and cons of making a move like this. I already figure that if I do this I will probably have to work by myself for atleast a year or two installing and servicing the equipment I install.
