My friend and I have a really good relationship.
A kind of relationship where we can tell each other almost everything.
We have talked about a lot of personal issues, as well as politics and other things. Even on the things we don’t agree on, we can usually agree to disagree. However, my friend will often tell me a lot of other issues that are going on, one of which involves his heating and air conditioning machine. My friend knows that I have some experience with the career field of heating and cooling, so if there is ever an issue that he can’t figure out, he comes to me and asks what the issue is. So lately he told me that he is having issues with the A/C unit short cycling. I started going over reasons why a central air conditioner might short cycle, but he interrupted me to tell me that he no longer had a central HVAC. Apparently he went and got a window A/C without telling me. He honestly expected the small window HVAC unit to cool his entire home. The worst part is the fact that the window HVAC device wasn’t even new. I had to break the bad news to him that the window A/C device is not going to be able to cool his entire home and he would need to get another central HVAC unit, preferably a new one. My friend obviously didn’t like to hear this, but he told me he would contact a HVAC corporation today.
