When I was young my family lived in a medium sized house in a warm climate. Our most memorable and fun times always involved water. Either we would swim in our pool, play basketball, slide down the slide or we would take the boat out to catch some fish. Both activities involved cooling off in water. The special feeling I remember like yesterday. I was always hungry after I got wet for some reason. Bringing home fresh caught fish, cleaning them and then cooking with some lemon salt and pepper butter was priceless. To recreate that taste in that same mind frame is impossible. Things change, like today our AC went out. It seems like in today’s life something always needs attention. No relaxation in the modern world when your HVAC system needs Freon. The HVAC technician I normally use is not available. I would fill the air conditioner myself, but for peace of mind, I will put aside my pride and call the professionals. Cooling off in humid climates takes a lot of energy and unsurprisingly without our air conditioner our electric bill was significantly less this month. In total, our home was without air conditioning for a duration of just under a month. By the time the HVAC technician fixed everything, I was getting used to sleeping in the heat. I learned how valuable having a good HVAC business on-call could be. If wouldn’t have taken time to look for best pricing, the night sweats may have been less severe. All in all, I found out what we take for granted and became more thankful for the small things in life.
