John is a good friend of mine, and he also is my neighbor.
- Whenever we are not at work, we spend time together catching up.
We recently watched a football match at his home, and I realized that his house was cold. After I asked him about it, he told me it had been like that for some days since his furnace kept breaking down, and he was considering buying a new one. He also explained that the technician tried a boiler repair but told him it was beyond repair. I suggested that he try installing a heat pump in his house to help keep him and his family warm. And he was interested in my suggestion. I told him I would accompany him the following weekend to a heating business selling different types of heat and AC products. The following weekend we went to the heating dealership, and we found an HVAC repairman who showed us the equipment and explained how they function. After learning a lot about the devices, he decided to use a hybrid heating system. The other option was hydronic heating, but he dismissed it shortly after. Either option would require annual or biannual heater maintenance. The furnace/heater installation took place all in a day’s work. The heater turned out great, and his family loved it. They liked it so much that they set a reminder for their first HVAC maintenance. It had been a while since I had seen anyone who got so excited about a heating system. They even went ahead to upgrade their dial thermostat.
