It was always great to spend time with my granddad when I was younger.
I remember him carrying me on his shoulders while I pretended to be supergirl.
He always told us funny, spooky, and sometimes even inspiring stories around the furnace during the winter evening. We had this beautiful brick furnace in our sitting room that we used to gather around almost every evening to listen to granddad’s stories over a cup of hot cocoa. I remember hearing my parents talk about how they had chosen this house because of this beautiful fireplace. They had later decided to install a gas fireplace because there was already a gas line fitted throughout the house. I later realized that my parents had also installed a geothermal heat pump that was the main heating and cooling system in the house. During spring and fall, I had noticed an a/c repairman who conducted frequent heat pump service and heater maintenance from the local air conditioning provider to assist in the air conditioning maintenance conducted twice a year. I was very interested in the cooling industry even as a young adult, and I realized the benefits of air quality systems and several energy-saving tips to keep the bills at a minimum. The nostalgia of the heating and cooling market and the a/c set up in residential and commercial buildings. I learned that a ductless heat pump was the best unit as it was highly efficient. The 71 years that my granddad was with us, he not only instilled life lessons but unknowingly led me to my career.
