I was seated in the driver’s seat of the lake apartment services truck staring at the buildings that held both nice plus not-so-good memories.
I Was back in middle school 9 years later, but this time not as a student but as an HVAC repairman. Being in the school compound brought back so many memories. I could not even remember the last time I bumped into some I went with to school. They had tied up a gas furnace/heater tune-up with the heating corp where I work. I was also supposed to take some measurements to calculate the size of the new gas gas furnace they wanted to install in the next few months. Because it is an institution, they needed the budget as soon as possible to take it to the board for approval. I also had to check the air duct to ensure that it was something that both of us could work on within the upcoming boiler installation. After the inspection, it was clear that the HVAC duct was ok. It just needed duct cleaning plus additional sealing to ensure that it was completely insulated. I also cleaned the washable filter that needed replacing, but since both of us would install a new whole-lake apartment heating system, there was no need to add expense. I hoped the school management would take the energy-saving help tips seriously when both of us installed the new unit. They were also hoping for budget approval before that year’s prom evening. After leaving school, I had to go to another home. The homeowner wanted their gas fireplace ran tests on. Most people rarely called the heating provider to maintenance their fireplace until it ceased to work.
