I called a local HVAC repair service when I was having trouble with my air conditioner.
I spoke with a man on the phone and he informed me that the company didn’t have an appointment available until 2 p.m.
the same day. I was certainly hoping for an earlier appointment than that, but I took the time slot just in case I couldn’t find anything quicker. I contacted a couple of additional HVAC repair centers. All of them were booked for the day. The HVAC service technician assigned to help with my repair called me around 12:30. He finished up a different job earlier than he anticipated. He could come see me early if I was ready. I thought that was great news. I agreed to let the service technician come early. The guy showed up at my place about 40 minutes later. I told him about the problem that I was having and he disappeared into the garage to look at the furnace and the air conditioner. After a few minutes, the technician came back to the house and gave me a full report on the status of the air conditioner. Although it needed to be replaced, the technician assured me that they had some refurbished machines in the shop. Any one of the machines would help lower the temperatures in the house. I selected a machine that was close to the make and model of the machine that I had installed already. I picked up an 18000 BTU machine with heat and air conditioning for less than $400 and it was a name brand company. I was extremely thankful for the helpful service technician.
