It’s great to have friends who have different things to offer one another.
- For example, in our friend group, we have an auto mechanic, another is a plumber, another an electrician, and I am a HVAC expert.
Now, this doesn’t mean we are only friends because of this, but it helps that we are there for one another. For example, our friend, the auto mechanic, was building a new house. The three of us came through for him and ensured he had good prices for wiring, plumbing, and HVAC work. In return, we also get vehicle repair and service prices at his auto repair shop. We have been friends for decades, and this has always been the dynamic of our friendship. This past summer, I was so busy at the HVAC company where I work. We had a terrible heat wave, and this led to lots of emergency repairs. When there are heat waves, folks tend to adjust thermostat settings in an effort to cool their homes. Unfortunately, this can put a strain on the unit and cause it to fail. Also the high temps were affecting cooling units that we didn’t work on during spring. For folks who got spring maintenance, it was a breeze getting through the heat wave. But, for others, they had to pay for HVAC repair when their units failed. One unlucky person was my buddy who is the electrician in the group. When I went to look at his unit, I noticed he had a dirty thermostat which was causing his unit not to run efficiently. It’s important to ensure your HVAC system is clean, and this includes the thermostat.
