Rick Martinez just wasn’t happy at his old job. With more than 30 years in the HVAC industry, he felt his skills weren’t being properly utilized. The time had come for a new challenge.
Applying due diligence, he attended classes, carried out extraordinary amounts of research, and, on April 1, fulfilled a lifelong dream, opening the doors to Home Environment Solutions LLC, his own residential HVAC contracting business.
“My wife and I had been kicking the idea around for the last couple of years or so, and it’s always been somewhat of a dream of mine to work for myself, so I decided to give it the ole’ college try and see if something would happen,” Martinez said. “I have all the sheet metal training, went to classes for service training, and a lot of my skills weren’t being utilized where I was at. So, in order to be able to do that, and not have to leave where we live, I thought perhaps it was time to start my own business.”
