Fixing an air conditioner for extra cash

When I first moved here I had nothing but a garbage bag filled with clothes, my tools, and my old station wagon. My plan was to live in the station wagon for a few weeks while I put together some money. It wound up being a lot more difficult than I anticipated, and it was […]

Helping Buzz with his cooling problem

Uncle Buzz was the black sheep of the family. I was told that he had always been a little off, and while he was a smart man he couldn’t function in society. Mostly he stayed in his cabin, deep in the woods, and lived alone. As I got older and went to college, I came […]

Saving up for an air conditioner

What was your first job? My first job was cutting people’s lawns. That seems very antiquated these days, I know! Back then there were not a lot of residential lawn care companies, and most people had to mow their own grass. I was a teenager, too young to drive, so I dragged my old lawnmower […]

Good thing I am a HVAC technician

All the coolant would leak to one side and not be as good at air conditioning the home. Landlords are never honest with you. When I moved into my rental home the landlord told me that the HVAC was serviced and he didn’t want me to call and complain about it later on. That automatically […]

Had some bad HVAC experiences

My HVAC equipment had been working great since the time I bought my house. My wife then read an article online that said you need to get yearly HVAC service. I tried to talk her out of it, but she wouldn’t budge. She hired a HVAC technician, he did the service date and leaf. He […]
