My name is Phil, and I fly a long haul rig over all the cement rivers of the country. That particularly sounds a little overly dramatic. What can I say, I have the soul of a poet and the body of a trucker. I named my rig Phil’s Blues, after the old country song. I spend just over fifty weeks a year inside the cab of my truck, so it’s more of a home than any home has ever been to me. It’s for that reason that I treat my rig with such pride, it’s the way I make a living and where I live! For the type of extreme routes I run, having the best quality HVAC plan in the truck is an absolute necessity. I cross the sand flats of the desert quite often, and with temps over 112 degrees, air conditioning is absolutely a matter of life and death. A few times a year I also make the ice road runs up in AK, so the rig truly has to have a spot-on oil furnace or I could get frostbitten from the steering wheel. But aside from that, I just need dependable heating and cooling because I honestly don’t have time to take it to the HVAC repair center regularly. I make time to go in for an HVAC tune up at least once a year. Thankfully, so far that has been all the attention my tough A/C equipment has really needed. I am actually due for a checkup on my heating and cooling this month, but with all the routes I’m on, it may have to be rescheduled.
