It was in the middle of summer and I had flown my father to live with me since he was living alone and had no one to help.
He was a sickly 85-year-old man who never complained about anything and was always grateful to see each day. It was very hot on this particular afternoon, there was a literal heatwave in the city that day. Dad had a rough night and was still not fully recovered and the heat was making it worse. My heat pump was not working. I rampaged through the garage for a fan to serve my dad. I tried to boost it by switching it on and off and also checking the thermostat. I even did the air duct cleaning to ensure there was no blockage but nothing worked. I contacted my cooling workman to fix the issue. They started by doing the air conditioning maintenance where the a/c worker examined the heat and AC products and discovered that the condenser was totally damaged. The local HVAC supplier quickly delivered a new compressor from a quality HVAC brand and the air conditioning expert went ahead to replace the new parts. They also installed a much-needed air quality system to help with whole home air purification. This would help with my allergies and other respiratory issues that I suffer from. I was grateful for the a/c representative who managed to finish the job in about 3 hours and dad did not have to tolerate the heat any longer. As they wrapped up, I thought I recognized the local contractor as the one who had installed the ductless HVAC at the office. It turns out, he was the same technician.
