When the Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman arrived to do the servicing on our gas furnace before Winter arrived, he marveled that it was still working.
He said the gas furnace was as old as Zeus, however it was working better than gas heating systems that were half its age.
He didn’t guess what every one of us were doing to keep it running so well, however he wanted to guess our secrets. I told him I made sure to change the air filter at least once every six weeks. Both of us had never missed a repair appointment, & every one of us had the air duct cleaned every 2 years. Dad knew every one of us were going to need a new gas furnace in the near future, however until that time came, he was going to make sure every one of us had quality heat. Even when the Heating plus Air Conditioning tech showed up & told dad the gas furnace would soon need to be updated, he was still caring for it prefer it was a new gas furnace. He never wavered from decreasing the air filters or having it diagnosed & cleaned. He talked to the Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman & asked if they had any gas heating systems that were prefer this one. The serviceman told dad they quit making gas heating systems prefer this one years ago, however he was sure dad would keep whatever gas furnace he bought, for quite some time. He knew Heating plus Air Conditioning servicemans who didn’t give their Heating plus Air Conditioning systems this much care. He thought dad should have been an Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman. Dad smiled & thanked him for the compliment however didn’t tell him he l received how to care for Heating plus Air Conditioning systems when he worked with his dad, who was an Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman.
