I staid close to home once I graduated college.
For some reason, unlike my siblings and cousins, I wasn’t all that wild about live anywhere else. The job I landed once I graduated was in my field and about an hour from my hometown. So it seemed like a no brainer to me. Plus, I preferred HVAC cooling over having to deal with have a gas furnace or something. I just couldn’t see myself dealing with winters that required a gas furnace. My mom and dad even moved away. That left me to look after my grandparents. That was too much of a problem really. They are super sweet people who live a very simple life only about 20 minutes from where I live now. I live in a fairly nice place with just my wife and our pets. So getting out of the air conditioning on occasion to check in on my grandparents isn’t a big deal. Normally, I just come over and visit. There is usually something I can help out with as well or maybe bring to them. The last visit I noticed that the old HVAC equipment just isn’t up to the task any longer. So I called the HVAC on my grandparents behalf to get the ball rolling on replacing the HVAC equipment. I had the HVAC contractor meet me out there one afternoon. He, I and my grandpa went to have a look to see what all needed to be replaced. We lucked out that there was only two sections of ductwork that would need to be replaced. The rest of the air ducts were in good shape so all we had to do was replace the HVAC unit.
