My mum always referred to me as the adventurous one in the family.
I loved discovering new things and learning something new every day.
As I grew up the enthusiasm did not go away. During the summer break, I would look for different jobs to keep me busy, I never worked at the same place twice in different summers. This summer, my dad, who is an HVAC tech, asked if I could shadow him during his job runs. On the first day of shadowing him, we went up to this bar to fix the boiler. It was the most popular bar in town and even though underage, I had always wanted to go there. I had heard many stories about how cool the place was. When we got there, the bar was still not open. It was a beautiful space. They had the heated floors at the VIP section while the heaters served the rest of the bar. The issue was the electric heating system. The indoor comfort and heating quality had reduced significantly. Though the furnace/heater installation had been done two years back, the heat and AC product had received multiple heating repairs in the last three months. My responsibility was to learn as much as I could and help out handing equipment to the heater maintenance team. The furnace filters had recently been replaced so they were as clean as could be. As they fixed the unit and the wireless thermostat that had since stopped working, I took a tour around the bar. All the stories about the place were true, the place was exquisite. The heating industry had started giving out digitized HVAC service plans to customers. The heating dealership that dad worked for also shared important tips with the bar management.
