When my parents shared with me what life was about, I stupidly believed them.
They always preached the importance of getting a good education, a great job and a decent home.
Settling down and preparing for a long life, leading to a miserable death was the correct way to conduct yourself, they said. So, I went out and got a good degree, a quality, stable job, and that house. Then, I slowly waited to die. However, at some point I started to question exactly what I was doing. Is this living? My beloved uncle arrived at just the right time to show me how wrong I had been, thanks to my failing indoor air quality control equipment. My revelation began on the night the furnace failed. It was frigidly cold in our home. I couldn’t figure out why the temperature control wasn’t controlling the indoor air handling component competently. I kept working with the gas furnace, trying to relight the pilot, and checking the Internet for other HVAC information. FInally, I called my uncle, who was a professional indoor air quality control specialist. He was kind enough to dash over to the home, where he promptly checked the heating component. He made several specialized small repairs. As my uncle talked to me about HVAC, he also shared about his life as an air temperature component worker. It turns out, the life of an indoor heating as well as cooling business is pretty interesting. Unlike mine, every day is different in the HVAC repair world, and rIght now, I’m applying to return back to school – this time, for heating and cooling repair!
