It’s funny the things that become intriguing as we grow older.
- I should have paid more attention to our HVAC installation growing up.
I knew it was a quality HVAC unit because we never had any air conditioning troubles. I only remember the a/c worker from the local cooling corporation coming around for air conditioner service, which I now know involved maintenance and repair. Once I got my own house, though rental, having an electric heat pump made me realize how much I needed to know about air conditioner tune-up because when the a/c professional first came around for it as scheduled, I had no idea what to expect. I have since learned and became interested in the indoor comfort business, which is close to my workplace. When I finally got to visit my college roommate turned friend at her newly built apartment, I was intrigued by the ductless mini-split she’d used for the space. I had only seen it at the office, but to see it work in a home so efficiently was an experience for me. She had worked with a cooling specialist to find the right equipment for her space that wouldn’t trouble her. I remember our horrible experience at our hostel when they failed to keep up with maintenance. Mia had almost fought with the digital thermostat trying to make it turn the AC on, but it had already broken down. It took so long for them to do the necessary repairs that we had to buy two fans and sit around them for help with indoor comfort. Now we both lived in homes with good AC and were in charge of maintenance.
