MaryLou and her husband purchased a more than four-acre piece of land adjacent to the woods.
The only pitfall to this piece of land is that it is far from society.
The nearest hospital was miles away, and so was the heating business. The few residents in the area got their whole-home heating and cooling products from heating dealers from the nearby town, and it is usually a cumbersome job as the clients have to wait a few days to acquire their new heating machine or get a hold of a heating industry specialist. MaryLou called me the other week complaining they were not enjoying Summer because their heat pump wasn’t working as efficiently, and due to my history as an Heating and AC professional, MaryLou consults me on matters concerning help with indoor comfort! Her spouse explained the few issues she could hear or notice in the unit. They had yet to call in for gas furnace repair since they moved into the house, which was well over a year. The only thing they had done in terms of Heating and AC care was to update the air conditioning filter. MaryLou still needed to call a heating company to care for the rest. Since my family and I were planning to visit them that weekend, MaryLou asked me to carry my toolset so that I could help them repair it. Waiting 3 more afternoons was a manageable stretch. When my friend and I eventually arrived, my friend and I set off to the heat pump right after supper. I was relieved that the system required minor repair, and then it was as good as new. I took it upon myself to teach Marylou and her family more about heating so that they could take better care of the unit and not depend on the heating dealer. I also installed the smart temperature control they had asked me to purchase.
