Zen and the Art of HVAC Maintenance

A lot of things in life require patience; kids, your body, your work, your HVAC system, etc.

If we can just learn patience then we would have a lot less troubles in life.

I think the best way for learning patience is meditation. It requires you to slow down, if only for a few minutes, and teaches you to just be instead of doing constantly. I’ve noticed that I can do things now that I couldn’t do before because of lack of patience. Some examples are; cooking meals, shopping, doing laundry, keeping my air conditioner clean and maintained, and taking time to read a book. I used to hire an HVAC company to clean my air filter because I had so little patience. But now, I’ve learned to slow down and smell the roses, so to speak. It’s made my life less hectic and richer because I notice things now that I didn’t even notice before. I am able to clean my HEPA filter and ductwork, as I am a licensed HVAC specialist, when before I would just call the local business down the street to come do it for me. I used to have a cleaning lady come and clean my flat and now I am able to do it on my own. I can also read books, like books on the latest HVAC technology, and learn new things that can help me in the future. I like having this new tool called patience and am happy I took the time to learn it. My HVAC rep is the one to thank, he got me into it.
