The other day, my brother called me up panicking on the phone.
- He asked me to please get my tools and come over right away.
I didn’t know what it was about, but I learned when I got there. His cooling system was not working and he thought I was going to be able to help him fix it. I wished he would have told me what the issue was before I got dressed and drove all the way to his place, but he didn’t tell me anything. He just insisted that it was an emergency. Honestly though, it was not an emergency. I told him that I was not an HVAC professional and there was no way I was going to even attempt to work on his HVAC system. He mentioned the time that I helped our uncle fix an HVAC system once, but that was such a long time ago. I couldn’t remember the first thing about that particular repair we did. The only thing I could do for an HVAC system was change out the air filter. I don’t know what my brother was thinking. I told him he basically had two options that would not void his warranty. The first option was to call for emergency HVAC repairs which would cost him a small fortune. The other option was to wait until morning when the HVAC company was officially open, and he could schedule the repair for his cooling system. With the latter choice, he would have to suffer a little bit with it being overheated in his home, but it wasn’t so bad in my opinion.
