Both of us spent the entire Christmas holiday at our Grandfatherrents’ home.
I remember having a conversation with our Grandfather about quality heating.
Their condo was consistently hot and cozy, so I engaged him in a discussion about the category of heating unit they had. I never bothered about such things until I started living on our own. An electric oil furnace heated the new home I currently live in. The building’s management tested all matters related to the heating business. My Grandmother proudly said that they had a dual fuel program and never failed to call the heating company for a oil furnace/heater tune-up. On the other hand, I had yet to deal with any Heating and Air Conditioning corporation since I left home. My parents also joined the conversation. They also said that they had the latest from the homeowner solutions. Two years ago, the Heating and Air Conditioning professional installed a ductless Heating and Air Conditioning in their home. It enabled them to have a zoned system, our Grandfatherrents also had a zoned system, and they both claimed it was really energy efficient. They also reduced the amount of energy used compared to their previous unit. On the other hand, our parents needed to reach out to an Heating and Air Conditioning worker twice a year for a heat pump service. The conversation went on and on until they found a more exciting topic which was me. Talking about heating devices and indoor comfort was way more interesting than grilling me about when I would settle down or at least introduce our partner to them. It was not high on our list and did not sit well with them.
