A WhatsApp message informed the group members that there would be a zoom meeting in the evening.
At nine in the evening, the five of us were present for the zoom family meeting; my parents and two brothers.
Our parents announced they wanted to start a bed and breakfast place, and the meeting took a turn. It took us all by surprise, but if that meant they would not sell the house, we were all on board. They told us everything they planned to do to make the necessary changes. They had everything covered apart from the HVAC installation. The current unit, even though it was a quality HVAC, was old, and they needed to upgrade it. It had served them for more than fifteen years because they never failed when it came to regular air conditioning service to help with indoor comfort. It was good that one of my brothers, a/c professional, had replaced the old regulator with a digital thermostat in the past year. The meeting became a discussion about the new air conditioning system that would best suit their new venture. My father had insisted that Keith, my brother, take care of installing the electric heat pump. Still, since he lives far from them, he advised them to call the local indoor comfort business so that a cooling specialist could go to their home and give the correct quotation and tell them the number of ductless mini-split units that they needed. He promised them they would not have to call the cooling corporation for the first air conditioning tune-up; he would be the first a/c worker to service it.
