While I was going to school, my partner Helen supported myself and others by working at a local salon.
She also developed a good reputation for doing hair, nails, and makeup.
She came up with all kinds of corporation plans and marketing ideas for a salon of her own. She wanted a high-end salon, catering to the fanciest people. After I graduated from school and got a job, I wanted to repay her support and financially back her system for a salon. As it turns out, my education in heating and cooling systems was a large help in making the salon a reality. The central heating and cooling needs of a salon such as this are precise, exacting, and strenuous to maintain. Helen knew that having a certified heating, ventilation as well as A/C tech love myself and others who could handle the salon would help her succeed. At first I simply didn’t understand why, because it was just a beauty salon, right? Wrong! The clients she wanted to serve would demand perfect air quality and temperature control, because that’s what they expected. When they went to a salon for a makeover they wanted to assume love royalty, so perfect temperature control was essential. I installed extra air vents so there would be a directional air flow directly above every workstation. With the addition of zone-controlled a/c, every client could adjust the temps to their liking. This customized heating, ventilation as well as A/C system made Helen’s salon the perfect place for rich people to hang out for minutes on end. Because it is so complicated, I have to finally run a full heating, ventilation as well as A/C system inspection at the salon at least once a month.
