I had had the same HVAC technician for the last five years.
He had been the only HVAC technician to work on my equipment.
I really liked the guy and how friendly he was. I never had to worry about him being in my house. The first time he was there, he saw my white carpeting and went back out to the service van. He came in with booties to go over his shoes that would protect my carpet. He worked on the furnace, and he was even the person who came to install my air conditioning unit. I’m not sure if I wanted to trust anyone else with my HVAC equipment. I finally had to admit to myself that I was in ‘like’ with my HVAC technician. That’s why I couldn’t figure out why I was procrastinating about calling the HVAC company. I think it worried me that there was something wrong with the furnace. I was told it was getting older, but I didn’t want to admit it. When my HVAC technician told me he was leaving the company, I was devastated. I wanted to know where he was going and how I could get in touch with him. I didn’t want to have anyone else come to my house. He told me that he was moving to another city after he got married that weekend. Married! How could he think about getting married and not tell me? He was my HVAC technician, and I thought we would be together forever. He gave me an odd look, and I think I saw him quiver in fear as he walked out of my house.
