My wife and I just wanted to move to a new area to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
We finally found a really nice home in a small town.
Everything was great, except the HVAC system admittedly needed some work. So I figured we could easily just call the HVAC company and have everything taken care of. When we moved in, I looked for the listings for HVAC companies in the area. I was shocked when there was only one HVAC business in the whole community. The people I spoke to on the phone at the HVAC company were nice, but I couldn’t get an HVAC technician to my house for a few days. When the HVAC technician arrived, he was this very old guy who worked incredibly slow. I was wondering if he actually knew what he was doing, and he assured me that he had plenty of experience. Evidently, he and a few others were the only HVAC technicians in the town. He managed to get the HVAC system working good again, but a month later, we had more problems. I eventually decided that we needed to just upgrade the HVAC unit to something better. They didn’t have many options though at the HVAC company, so we just went for a basic HVAC unit. The installation seemed to take forever, but when it was done, we were actually comfortable in our home for a change. I guess if you choose to live in a rural area, you have to get used to the fact that good help can be difficult to find.
