The owner invited dad to the office and as dad changed the furnace filter, the owner told him about the furnace/heater installation of the warm floors
Dad had worked in the heating industry for eternity. He went on to own one of the best and most successful heating dealerships in town. Dad knew the ins and outs of the heating market. His retirement party was something else. So many of his employees and colleagues came to the party and as much as they were sad to see him leave, they were super proud of his achievement and leadership. I had followed in dad’s footsteps and become a heating repair expert and was working in the most successful companies in the state. Later that day after the celebrations were done, we sat with dad at the fireplace as he narrated his career to us. We called the sessions, war stories about heat and AC products, narrated by dad. There is one story that stood out. One time dad was in the office when a call came in from the nearby building. They needed HVAC techs to check on the boiler. When they got to the place, they were directed to where the heater was. The building was a tile store. They started with the heater maintenance and as soon as they started, the owner of the store-bought us some hot cocoa. This was such a kind gesture. As dad was checking on the wireless thermostat, he noticed the heated floors in the office. The owner invited dad to the office and as dad changed the furnace filter, the owner told him about the furnace/heater installation of the warm floors. He was such a jolly man. Once dad’s team was done with the HVAC service plan on the electric heating system, the factory owner bought them a fully packed lunch. From then on, they became such good friends.
