Advice from Old People

She ended up with me, but their advice is valid with HVAC in that many decisions are involved like choosing the properly sized unit, hiring the best installer, or opting for a ductless system

I have good news and bad news for Senior Citizens. The good news is that noses and ears do not keep growing with age. The bad news is that the cartilage in these body parts will eventually break down and barring cosmetic surgery, will undergo the inevitable sag, the bane of a youthful appearance. I think there is another thing that does not stop growing in old people. That is patience, and I think this is a good thing. Newborns have zero patience, and it takes about 10 years for it to grow to perhaps one minute before cries are heard. For Millennials, their patience extends to about 30 minutes. The patience of Boomers is quite lengthy but the irony is that Boomers have nothing to be impatient about anymore apart from getting their Millennial children out of their house. Seniors are also great with giving advice beginning with, “Listen to your elders”, but with a new HVAC system, those bits of advice dispensed by old people are quite valid. Old people tell younger folks to “take care of their bodies” and this certainly applies to taking care of an HVAC system with a regular cleaning and maintenance program from a professional HVAC technician. My grandpa urged me to save money and there are great savings to be realized with newer and more efficient HVAC systems. My wife failed to heed the advice of her elderly parents who told her to choose her spouse carefully. She ended up with me, but their advice is valid with HVAC in that many decisions are involved like choosing the properly sized unit, hiring the best installer, or opting for a ductless system. These choices will require the patience of a saint to get the best result.
