Heating and Cooling Company Cares about Kids

Also, we have a snow mountain and an ice skating arena; both of those require lots of air conditioning because we are a southern city

One of the things I always want to think about when doing business with a company is whether or not they choose to show gratitude. Even though most business owners work hard to create their companies, that does not mean that they achieved their success in a bubble of their own making. No company succeeds without other people. They need employees, service providers and of course customers. Without customers, no company is a success. In other words, they need the folks in their community. Because that is true, I always look for an attitude of gratitude when I decide to be a client of any company. Take one of the local heating and cooling companies, for example. Here in my small city, one of the HVAC businesses goes the extra effort to show support for kids. Henry’s HVAC gives a portion of its proceeds to a children’s charity. In addition, the HVAC company sponsors events throughout the city each year. During the winter festival, the HVAC company provides heating in several of the tents. Also, we have a snow mountain and an ice skating arena; both of those require lots of air conditioning because we are a southern city. We don’t exactly have snow naturally! Therefore, the HVAc company needs to provide lots of cooling for those fun kids’ projects. Because Henry’s HVAC cares about kids, I choose to do business with them when I need a/c service or repair; I will also choose them when the time comes to replace my heating and cooling system down the road.

I went ahead and bought the house with the used A/C

When you are in the market for a new house, the first thing you tend to do once you find a house you like, is to get the home tested on.

  • Home inspectors are supposed to be looking out for the well-being of the homeowner and the bank that is providing the mortgage, if there is anything too substantially wrong with the house, either the bank won’t lend the currency or the potential client will back out of the purchase.

Well, when I was looking for a current home, I fell in love with an older model stone place in an established city. It was at the top of my price range, so I couldn’t afford anything too dramatic to be wrong with it. The home inspector went in and got to work looking in every nook and corner for what might need to be fixed or updated. This house had only minor things. The roof was great plus relatively new. The tepid heater was one of the newer kinds that provides heating on demand. There were no apparent cracks that would indicate foundation concerns. There was just one thing I was sad about. The HVAC. The inspector advocated that the cooling system and oil furnace entirely didn’t have much longer to live. He quoted that I would need to update the Heating plus A/C within multiple years of buying the house. Well, the HVAC is usually the second most luxurious thing to update in a home, second only to the roof, so that unquestionably made me worry. Then I found out the cooling system worked fine, but he just had a formula that said replacing the cooling system usually needed to happen every 10 years, plus this heating and A/C unit was several years old. I went ahead and bought the house.

I was watching for my HVAC technician.

Last week, I had to have an HVAC technician to check out my air conditioning unit.

  • It was just a regular service inspection, but I wasn’t able to find the time in my work schedule to take off the time to be at the house.

I gave the key to my neighbor and told her that if the HVAC tech needed to get into the house. I gave her a check to pay the bill and I went to work. When I got home, I went right over to my neighbor’s. I wanted to know how much it had cost me and know if there were any problems with the air conditioning ? She looked at me kind of oddly, and told me the HVAC technician never showed up. I couldn’t believe it, and I apologized for leaving so quickly, but I wanted to call the HVAC company before they closed. I finally got in touch with the HVAC operator and told them my problem. They insisted the HVAC technician had been there,, and they even pulled out his work order. When they asked the address, the woman groaned. They had transposed two of the numbers and sent him to a different address. She wanted to set up another appointment, and I told her it had to be on a Saturday so I didn’t need to take off work. I got my Saturday appointment and I sat there and waited. When the HVAC tech hadn’t shown up by noon, I made the phone call again. She told me he was on the way.

Winter had me worried.

I only had to wait two days for them to come out and look at my furnace

I’m not someone who ever worried about the weather. I could always find the fun in being outside, regardless of it raining, snowing, frigid, or sizzling. I loved being outdoors. Then I ended up having the flu. Suddenly, I was sicker than I had ever been in my life. I laid in bed shivering. My head was pounding. I had a fever of 104 and I couldn’t breathe. It didn’t matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to shake the flu once it took hold of me. I had the furnace running, and it was only the end of September. When I realized that it ‘was’ only the end of September, I wondered if there was a problem with my furnace. I knew I should have been much warmer than I was. With winter coming quickly, I was beginning to worry. I already knew I had to have the servicing done, but I wanted to wait until I was feeling better. If I waited another week or more, it would already be getting close to when we had the first freeze in our area. I didn’t want to wait that long. I decided to call the HVAC company and make an appointment. I called my mom for the number of the HVAC company she had always used. Once I got in touch with the HVAC company, I explained my situation. I only had to wait two days for them to come out and look at my furnace. I had a problem, but it wasn’t with the furnace. They told me that I hadn’t changed the thermostat from air conditioning to heating.

Sweaters aren’t just for winter.

My husband has been razzing me for the past couple weeks.

All the sweaters I had put in storage for winter had been dug out and I was back to wearing them. He told me it couldn’t possibly be that cold in the house, but I disagreed. Ever since we had the air conditioning unit installed, it was downright freezing. We had new air vents installed, and those meant for the air conditioning were now located on the wall. The cold air seemed to be falling right down on top of my head. He was lucky I wasn’t wearing a hat to keep the cool air off my head. He checked the thermostat, and he told me it was set for seventy-two, but I was sure it had to be colder than that. The next thing I knew, he was placing a table thermometer right near where I was working. Within minutes, the temperature had dropped to fifty-eight. He frowned when he looked at the thermometer. I half expected to get an apology for how rude he had been. Instead, he walked out of my computer and came back in with a small step stool. He put the thermometer in the air vents. I heard him make a sound as he pulled the thermometer out. He then moved the air vents, so I wasn’t feeling any cold air coming from it. He told me if the room didn’t warm up a bit, I should let him know. He said he could shut the air vent off and as long as I kept the door open, I would be comfortable again.

Have you looked in a phone book lately?

She handed me the card for the HVAC company that had been on my desk.

I was in a mad search to find the phone number for my HVAC company. I knew the name of the company, but I couldn’t find a business card to go with it. I looked in every home phone and address book that I could find, but I couldn’t find it. I ripped my desk apart, trying to find the business card I knew I had kept from last year. I found a section I thought was for H’s which would help me find the HVAC companies. When I found the HVAC section, there was a reference to searching for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. I moved forward to the section it referred me to only to find there were quite a few HVAC companies, but I couldn’t read the numbers unless I had a magnifying glass. I knew my eyes were getting bad, but I didn’t think they had become this bad. I called my daughter into the room and asked her to look at the numbers for me. She grabbed the magnifying glass and found the number I was looking for. My daughter laughed at me when I just sat there looking at her with my head hung low. She handed me the card for the HVAC company that had been on my desk. She told me I wasn’t losing my eyesight, but I had too much clutter on my desk. We both laughed as she walked away so I could get to my call.. I could finally call the HVAC company and get my HVAC service scheduled before the next big storm hit.
