I’ve been chasing after money since I was a youngster

Ever since I was a youngster, I always felt the need to chase after money.

I was trying to make money however I could.

I had a paper route, I offered to repair people’s things, and I would do maintenance work and mow lawns. I would repair window A/C units, portable heaters, and I would clean people’s homes. I saved up a lot of money over the years and realized I made a fair amount of money working on window A/C units and portable heaters. A lot of people were regularly bringing me their broken HVAC equipment and I even remember somebody said I made a fine HVAC professional. That was when I realized that I could do this type of work for a living. I wanted to have all the nice things in life, a nice car, a nice home, a wonderful HVAC system, and a superb family. So I worked hard to study at an HVAC trade school and eventually I was able to earn that HVAC certification. The money was really good from the moment I started but I have been promoted numerous times over the years. Having worked this HVAC career for so long, I managed to get everything I wanted in life. But of course, there was more that I wasn’t really thinking about. My boss was telling me that he would like me to take over the HVAC company when he retires. I’m honored that he would ask me to do this, but I don’t know for certain if I can handle such a responsibility.

I didn’t know how to feel when my wife won the raffle contest for the radiant heated floors

I was really happy for my brother when he first opened his HVAC business.

  • He said that he wanted to install radiant heated floors at my house for a nice discount.

I thought this sounded like a wonderful idea. The next thing I knew, my wife was telling me that she purchased raffle tickets for this radio contest. She said they were going to do the drawing on a certain day, but she doubted she would win the grand prize. I asked her what the grand prize was and she said we would have radiant heated floors installed in our home for no charge. I couldn’t believe it because I basically promised my brother we would go through his company to have radiant heated floors installed. Of course, I figured my wife was right, we likely would not win the contest. Well, when it came that day for them to do the drawing, my wife flipped out when she learned that we won. I also couldn’t believe it. I knew that I couldn’t pass up on free radiant heated floors in our home, and I had to break the news to my brother. I let him know what happened, how my wife got us into that raffle contest and we actually won the radiant heated floors. He honestly couldn’t believe it himself, but he said it wasn’t a big issue. He said he was kind of just doing me a favor offering the radiant heated floors for so cheap, but if I could get them for free, that was even better! I was just glad that he was not upset but he said it would be one less thing he had to take care of.

I missed the sale on the smart window A/C units because I waited to ask my wife about it

The other day when I was shopping online, I saw these smart window A/C units that were on sale.

I had never seen smart window A/C units before. They basically are built with a smart thermostat that can be controlled via an app on your smart devices. They also are incredibly energy efficient and much nicer than old school window A/C units. While looking at these units, I honestly was tempted to just buy one. I always wanted to have more air conditioning when trying to sleep in my room at night. I told my wife this a long time ago hoping she would get me a nice window A/C unit for our bedroom for my birthday, but she never did that. I knew my wife wouldn’t want me to just impulse buy a new cooling unit, but it was on sale! Well, I ended up waiting and then I showed my wife the window A/C unit that was on sale. She seemed to be agitated but told me to just get it. She didn’t want to talk about anything, and so I went to purchase the smart window A/C unit. Unfortunately, when I got around to buying the thing, it was already out of stock. It was so disappointing. If I would have just purchased the thing before when I knew how bad I wanted it, I could have got it for the low price they were asking for. Now if I get a window A/C unit, it might not be a smart one with the fancy smart application for controlling the temperature control settings. I guess I’ll just have to go looking for other window A/C units that are for sale.

My brother invited me to help install his new ductless mini split

It was pretty hilarious when my brother decided he was going to install a ductless mini split in his house.

He had a bunch of friends come over to help with the installation and he also invited me. I didn’t know the first thing about installing HVAC equipment, but I figured I’d be there for morale support. My brother seemed to be freaking out at first when he was reading through the directions. He started off by saying, “Some assembly required? We have to put this whole thing together!” Everybody laughed and said that was right. One of his buddies brought up YouTube and found an installation for this same model of ductless mini split. Suddenly, the instructions were a lot more clear because these guys were showing exactly what to do step-by-step. My brother said he knew there was a good reason why he invited that particular friend. We slowly made our way through the installation process, and it wasn’t too bad. I didn’t do much work myself but I was bringing people tools as they needed them. I didn’t even want to get involved much because I was afraid that I was going to break something. I didn’t even want to put the batteries in the thermostats because I might have dropped one of them. I would have been devastated if I messed something up with my brother’s new HVAC system. When it was all installed though, it was a great working HVAC system! One of these days, I might even have one installed at my place with my brother helping me out.

The graduation ceremony was uncomfortable but the HVAC worker came to the rescue

It was exciting to go to our daughter’s graduation, but the air quality was really bad in the assembly hall.

The chairs were comfortable enough, but it didn’t matter because it felt extremely overheated and the air felt terribly stuffy. My wife and I could only fold up our programs and try to use them as making shift cooling devices. We were basically just using them to fan ourselves for some cooling relief, which wasn’t much. About ten minutes into the assembly, there was an HVAC professional seen going to the back and we figured he was going to fix the cooling system. That guy must have been the best HVAC professional of all time because he was able to get the cooling system working again after about 15 minutes. Considering we weren’t even halfway through the graduation ceremony yet, this was a beautiful thing that the A/C was working again. That cooling air came flowing on us and the comfort became greater in no time. It was good to see our daughter up there accepting her awards, but she seemed to be sweating a little bit. Honestly, all the kids seemed to be going through it with discomfort but everybody seemed to be relieved when the A/C system was working again. When the HVAC worker was making his way back to his truck, some kid pointed him out and shouted, “Thank You HVAC dude!” Everybody applauded the guy as he was leaving and a bunch of other kids were also screaming thanks! It was a total riot!

The HVAC professional said our air quality was lacking

When the HVAC professional came out to our home recently, he was telling us that the air quality seemed a little lacking.

He checked everything out with the HVAC system and came to find that the ductwork was clogged up rather badly.

He said we needed ductwork cleaning, but we also could use better air filters like HEPA filters. I said I wasn’t sure if I could afford such expensive air filters, but the HVAC professional said he would sell us a whole pack for 50% off their regular price. When I learned how much the cost was going to be, I figured it couldn’t hurt to try the HEPA filters at least to see how much we liked them. Well, the ductwork cleaning went off without a hitch and the HEPA filters helped way more than I thought they would. The air quality improved a great deal. I figured it was mostly because of the ductwork cleaning because they got a lot of junk and debris from out of the ductwork system. The HEPA filters though I learned pull 99.9% of contaminants from the air, and that’s nothing to scoff at. I figure so long as I continue using the HEPA filters, I shouldn’t even have much dirt built up in the ductwork system, but I will continue getting regular ductwork cleaning in the future. If I can continue to get the HEPA filters for a fair price, I wouldn’t mind using those moving forward. Of course, I’m going to have to look online to see if they have cheap HEPA filters, because I won’t always be able to get a discount through the local HVAC company.

It seems that commercial HVAC repair work is more suitable for me

When I first thought about getting into the HVAC industry, I thought it sounded like a wonderful career. The thing is, I’m a bit of an introvert and I have a hard time talking to people for too long. I thought this job would be perfect for me because I wouldn’t have to deal with people too much. For the most part, I figured I would just be working on the heating and cooling equipment and people would leave me alone for the most part. Well, it seems I don’t always get so lucky when I go to people’s homes for HVAC repairs. I often get people who want to stick around and watch me work. I don’t want to be rude and tell people to let me work in peace, but I wish I could tell them that. I have people asking me questions all the time, and it honestly stresses me out. Recently though, I started talking to the boss at the HVAC company about getting me into the commercial HVAC repairs and maintenance. He said that was pretty challenging stuff, but he would be happy to help me out. I got in with a good trainer for commercial heating and cooling repair and I actually love this work way more than the residential stuff. I find that with these commercial systems, the people are not overly concerned and don’t want to ask so many questions. They are not staring at me while I’m working and I don’t have people asking me questions all day. The work is more challenging for sure, but I love it way more!

Things became extremely difficult after my husband passed away

When my husband died, it was a difficult period in my life.

I suddenly had to take care of the home and the kids on my own, and it was difficult even working with all the grief that was breaking me inside.

I didn’t think I could afford things like the regular HVAC maintenance, so I decided to learn how to do this maintenance on my own. I actually did pretty good work cleaning the HVAC system after I shut the power off to it. I made sure to change the air filters regularly for good air quality in the house, and the kids were doing alright in school. They asked me a lot of questions with different homework assignments, but I could only do so much. It was their father who used to help them out with all those complicated projects and assignments. I have to admit, there were some days when I just felt like screaming at the top of my lungs, but I had to keep myself together for the sake of the children. While I have been taking care of the HVAC maintenance on my own, I might have to enroll in an HVAC service plan or something because I don’t think I can keep this up forever. With an HVAC service plan, I know I will get all the service that is required to keep the HVAC running strong, and it will cost less than calling up the HVAC company here and there like my husband used to do. I’m going to have to figure things out if I’m going to keep my family alive and healthy.

Always get your HVAC maintenance down when approaching the cold season

After that, they might not even have the HVAC system replaced, they will just go without cooling through the hot season

I feel that having quality heating and air is a sacred thing. You know there was a time when people didn’t even have access to this modern day technology. The air conditioner hasn’t been around for especially long, and we’re very lucky to have such breakthroughs in technology these days. We have reached the point where HVAC systems are so energy efficient and better for the environment in many cases. Now we have it to where most households have HVAC systems for standard comfort. You can live in the most uncomfortable places where it comes to the climate, and with a good HVAC you can be comfortable! With advanced cooling systems these days, you can genuinely use your HVAC to make the humidity levels just right in your home. It’s actually smart to always use your A/C system in the hot season for excellent comfort and appropriate humidity levels. Now of course, there are people who try to go without an HVAC system. Some people will get a home and just use the HVAC system until it quits working. After that, they might not even have the HVAC system replaced, they will just go without cooling through the hot season. Now with the heating system, this is something that is essential for survival. If you don’t have a good heating system in the winter in a colder climate, you might not last through the cold season. So while having a cooling system is technically not necessary for all people, don’t ever skip on the heating system maintenance when you approach the winter months!

I didn’t enjoy the palm reading I got at the fair

I had my palm read when I went to the fair with my buddies.

I just wanted to have a good time and ride the rides and enjoy the treats.

I wanted to win prizes from the carnival games and just have a relaxing time. Well, I wasn’t too eager to see the palm reader, but my friends were all curious. So we all went to this little tent. Fortunately, the tent had air conditioning so it wasn’t so terrible inside of there. Well, when it was my turn, I didn’t even want to go through with it. My friends urged me to go and I wasn’t going to let them call me a chicken. Well, I was actually annoyed upon getting the palm reading. The palm reader told me that I was going to experience some situations where I would have to pay for emergency services and I wasn’t going to have enough money to cover the cost for everything. It didn’t seem like much of a fortune to me, but I just forgot about it. Well, within the month I ended up having my heating system break down on me when it was cold outside. I ended up having to call for emergency services afterall. I didn’t even know that this was what was meant by the fortune I had, but it finally made sense. I didn’t really believe in this type of stuff, but I was worried about what could possibly come next. Next I had issues with my car and I needed it to get to and from work. It turned out that the repairs were going to cost a lot. They wanted to provide a tune-up to the cooling system, the heater, and they wanted to replace some components. I had to figure out what to have done to the car so it would still drive, but I wouldn’t be entirely broke.
