  6. Customer Interaction: Technicians often interact with clients to understand their specific needs, provide cost estimates for installations or repairs, and explain technical details in a way that clients can understand.

  7. Emergencies: Commercial HVAC/R Technicians may be called upon to respond to emergency situations, especially if a critical system failure occurs. Quick and effective problem-solving is essential in such cases.
