There was a big feast at my parent’s house last week, and my siblings and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
My parents were celebrating the golden jubilee of their marriage and had invited most of the family members and close friends.
They had prepared much for the event, including running a furnace/heater tune-up on their dual-fuel system. The team of HVAC technicians that handled the heat pump service were the same ones that had done the maintenance on my parent’s heating device. Since I was involved in the ceremony preparations, I was present when the HVAC professionals arrived. After giving dad’s heating equipment a clean bill of health, they gave them a polite earful about the importance of regular servicing of the device. One of the great reasons was to increase the unit’s lifespan no matter the type. Even an electric furnace needs frequent repairs and maintenance. To get any unit to provide quality heating and indoor comfort, the heating contractor reiterated the significance of bi-annual maintenance for large and quarterly for smaller appliances. The HVAC supplier explained that the care of a unit eventually saves the owner money for used up in frequent repairs. They told us something I had heard in the grapevine that was confirmed. The experts said the homeowner solution association, the umbrella organization for all the heating businesses in the country, would start giving talks to educate the homeowners on how to maintain their units. My parents were seriously taking notes as the experts went on giving them vital information. Some of their friends could attest to what the experts had discussed since they had their systems for more than one and a half decades.
