Usually construction companies say they drive “Trucks”, but we drive “Vans”!

‘Vannin’ is a lifestyle and we love it.

Written by Orest Õh.

Trades technicians don’t go as far as living in a van, although there are people who live in vans by choice and maintain a lifestyle of minimalism & self-reliance. Speaking for lots of trades: electrician, painter, carpenter, builder.. we maintain our own level of self reliance through… vans!

This is an interactive blog so lets comment, leave replies, hate, love, and discuss. It will begin with an article, lead to more details on my current company van, and end with a video shoot somewhere in Southern Ontario.

The ability to carry tools and parts inside of our vehicles increases the confidence of our team and improves the chances of getting sh*t done. Shelving, partition wall, roof rack, winter tires, and a back-up camera will get you further, but all these things quickly add up atop the purchase price! Will Gonell of Gonell Homes and award winning custom home builder puts it in a good way, “The days of seeing a plumber with his butt crack showing are over”. Meaning, if you want to be involved in modern construction you need to be up to date.

We’ve all seen those cluttered vans that are nasty inside, would you want your kid being an apprentice for that guy? Hopefully not. To say we live in our vans can be a joke, but under the right circumstances one can see this as being true. Question a tech next time about how much time they spend in their work vehicle, he or she will smirk and give a slight laugh. Today at Blackrock HVAC, we accept this reality and improve the vans in comfort and performance. If your van or truck is a tool for business, then having it as a more comfortable environment AND a cooler extension of your teammates, in my opinion that’s money well spent.

As a senior technician working at BRHVAC I can confidently state that our company culture has lots to do with automobiles, performance, and engines. Our natural tendancy improve, modify, customize, and tinker with things doesn’t help with the addiction to buying parts either. Add to that a heavy bill from buying tools – another addiction! How is anybody still in business? Are trades really a business, or is a lifestyle by choice??

HVAC On Japan.

HVAC On Japan.

Written by オレスト

Waiting for trains in Japan is easy because they are quick and always come on time. Who doesn’t like speed and a reliable cummer?

The shuttle back to Narita airport will arrive any minute now, and I cannot wait to get back home to eat some real food. Japan lacks fruits and protein to fuel an Eastern European like myself -don’t get me wrong, I love Asian food – but loosing fifteen pounds in two weeks is called hunger. Mom, feed me potatoes, please!

They say love at first sight is a real thing. . that all it takes is one look or one moment to know you belong together.

Can people and places on Earth go together like humans do?

Readers, is it possible to have such a strong connection to your roots that you take that land with you wherever you are? Love and connections are a funny thing 😉

HVAC Contractor Takes City Transit to a Service Call .

Written by Writer X.

 

Toronto, Ontario. Canada. 

They help us solve problems and they help our cities grow. There are thousands of construction trades professionals in Canada today, but does every service call require a Mercedes Sprinter on the road?

BLACKROCK HVAC LTD tackled one of the biggest challenges facing our city today, traffic. Oh lovely traffic. For many Torontonians the TTC’s Bloor Subway Line is a convenient tool, but that’s not the case for contractors who need their trucks. Or do they?

What Is A Modern Mechanical Room?

A modern mechanical room will feature but are not limited to a furnace, hot water storage, heating boiler, gas connections, central vacuum, the electrical panel, elevator pump, and surveillance. Any wires that don’t have to be seen will not be seen. Gaps in sheetmetal are sealed with silicone. Modern accessories like switches, floor grilles, and Wi-Fi thermostats are used.
