So, stop me if you’ve been in this predicament before: It’s a quiet, comfortable Saturday morning.
- You’ve got the entire day ahead of you, and there is a list of things you need to take care of, including a grocery run and a stop at the mall to return something.
Before you leave, you notice that the temperature in your home is a bit warmer than usual for a summer morning in June. When you check the thermostat, you find that the cooling system is not only off – it isn’t responding to any input at all! That’s always a big pain in the neck, isn’t it? Well, I was going through this exact predicament last weekend when I had a laundry list of things to do. And of course, all of those things were delayed because I had to get the air conditioning system repaired. I called my usual heating and A/C repair company to get scheduled, but they were booked solid for the next two weeks! Now I was beginning to worry that I might have to go more than just a few days without any air conditioning. That’s when I reached out to a different company, which claimed to always have open availability for any repair. What they neglected to mention in their advertisements, was that they were open for any emergency repair! For routine repairs to a heating or air conditioning system, they were about as free to drop by as my usual guys. With no other option, and a birthday party to host the following day, I had no choice but to call and schedule an emergency visit to take place that same day. Sure, I paid far more than I wanted for my A/C system to get fixed, but at least it was done and over with by noon!
