I grew up on a ranch, and most people in that area had farms which meant that the neighbors were about farther away.
- The fun part was riding a bike to the neighbors home, but that meant not being able to play till dusk.
I grew up and had a family and then moved to a gated community. Now that I am working as an HVAC repairman in a reputable heating corp, I came up with this proposal to have a whole home heating day in our community. The day would include providing quality furnace/heater tune-ups and learning the safest ways to wash your washable filter without damaging it. The residents would know how to check for leaks in your ductwork, duct cleaning, and other simple activities that would maximize the potential of one’s heating system. The technicians from the home services company would do rounds in the houses, give them energy-saving help tips best suited for their unit, and teach them how to seal leaks on their HVAC duct. As for the new boiler installations, the heating contractors would determine the most suitable location for the gas furnace. This particular day would bring help to the gated community residents instead of them looking for help. There were heating providers on standby, ready to sell any vital component needed by the residents. The service would also extend to gas fireplaces for those who have them. The day would be closed by a community party with food, drinks, and games. I hoped that the party would be a hit for both the adults and the children. The party would create an avenue for the neighbors to interact more.
