This dude was determined to fix something that he just completely didn’t understand.
Sometimes little boys grow into just bigger boys. I’ve noticed that a lot more since I actually made the jump from bigger boy to adult, human man. My wife had a lot to do with dragging me into this phase of my life. So did becoming a homeowner. Owning my own heating and cooling equipment has really been great. It’s so much better than dealing with the antiquated HVAC equipment in all the apartments I lived in. Not only is the residential HVAC the very latest but it comes with the most advanced HVAC technology as well. Plus, all the service is done by a certified HVAC professional who actually knows what he’s doing. The only person I ever saw working on my HVAC for a decade was the apartment handyman. I’m done with that. But having all this expensive HVAC equipment requires being an adult about it. Along with the semi annual HVAC maintenance, if there was ever a problem, I just call the HVAC company. Watching my neighbor trying to fix his heat pump the other day reminded me of being just a bigger boy. I walked over to be neighborly and hold the flashlight. This dude was determined to fix something that he just completely didn’t understand. I hung out for 20 minutes before suggesting that he do the smart thing and just call the HVAC professionals. I mean, that’s what adults do. Thankfully, I saw an HVAC technician’s van outside my neighbor’s house when I let the cat out the next morning. For real, HVAC equipment is just far to valuable to my family’s comfort to have anyone but a pro take care of it.
