Alsip is a small town outside of the Chicago city limits.
- Alsip is much smaller than some of the other communities outside of chicago.
There are only 20,000 people living in Alsip. Even though Alsip is in Cook county, it’s as close as I want to be to chicago. I lived in Chicago for a long time. I worked at an HVAC business. We handled commercial repairs and insulation jobs. When my girlfriend got pregnant, we decided to move to alsip. For a while I was commuting to my job in the city. There were only a couple of HVAC providers in Alsip so it made sense for me to drive to the city. When I finally got hired by an Alsip HVAC provider, I quit my job in the city so I would not have to commute to work anymore. The Alsip HVAC provider is only 10 minutes away from my house. I don’t have to get up early or worry about the commute. I use a lot less gas now too. I took a small pay cut to work at the Alsip HVAC provider, but I easily save enough money on gas to make up the difference. My girlfriend and I also get perks from the HVAC provider like free tune-ups on our heat pump and air conditioner and a steady supply of clean air filters for the heating and cooling system at home. By taking care of the system at home, we can also save money on our monthly heating and cooling bills. There are certainly some very nice perks to working in the heating and AC repair and installation industry.
