I’ve been trying to get my brother to have his HVAC system serviced for several years now.
- Our parents never had their HVAC system serviced by a certified HVAC specialist because our dad was handy around the house.
He serviced everything from our cars to the furnace and air conditioner. My brother decided that he was going to service his own HVAC system just like my dad when he moved into his home, but I don’t think he’s doing very well with it. For starters, I know he doesn’t know anything about HVAC maintenance or equipment because he’s never even watched my dad service his HVAC system. Secondly, I’ve seen my brother’s utility bill and it was almost double the price of mine. We live in the same area and we have the same temperature preferences, so I know what a normal utility bill is supposed to look like. One afternoon, while I was flipping through my mail, I noticed a coupon for a free HVAC service appointment for any new members with the local HVAC company. I took the coupon to my brother and insisted that he at least try! A few weeks later, he told me about his experience with the HVAC company and how great it was. The HVAC specialist was able to clean and replace a few things so his system would run more efficiently. My brother also really loved how he didn’t have to worry about messing up his HVAC system while trying to do things himself. He was excited to get his next utility bill and see a lower price.
