Needless to say, my dad is on the same page as me now
I always believe that it is better to be prepared than to be sorry. I liked to be preventative and avoid any complications. I am like this with all things in my life. I’m especially this way when it comes to my home. I try to make sure everything is running at its full capacity rather than run into complications along the way. I truly believe that this avoid headaches and unnecessary spending. I am most careful with my heating and cooling units. Every year, I complete two maintenance checks. In the fall, I do a maintenance check for my heater. In the spring, I do a maintenance check for my air conditioner. I have been able to identify small problems and fix them immediately this way, while preventing larger problems. I tried to convince my dad that he should do the same thing for years, but he thought that I was just costing myself more money. He had a change of heart recently because of his heating system failing in the middle of winter. A piece of his heating unit broke in the middle of a cold winter night. I called my trusty HVAC serviceman and he immediately came to my dad’s rescue. He told my dad that he could’ve prevented this problem with a maintenance check. He would’ve noticed this problem and fixed it before the winter weather came. Needless to say, my dad is on the same page as me now. We’re both making our annual appointments at the same time now. We hold each other accountable!
