Always leave HVAC repairs to the professionals

James and I had been friends since high school, and while we both may be married with children now, we still try to hang out and do some outdoor activities whenever there is time.

  • James is a great guy, but unfortunately, he has a bad habit of making easily avoidable mistakes.

I try to do the best I can to help him, but he often won’t listen to me. The most recent example of this was when he was complaining about how he hated his indoor heating and air conditioning system. He had been having serious trouble with his air conditioning unit and was telling me about how he and the kids were frying. I asked him why had he not called a HVAC company and had a cooling specialist fix it? He explained to me that it was too expensive and he didn’t want to pay the costs. He announced to his family and I that he was going to try and repair it himself. I told him that was a terrible idea, and that he could easily turn a repair that would have been a few hundred dollars into a few thousand dollars because I knew he had no clue what he was doing. I also told him there was the danger of him being electrocuted but instead of listening to me, he only became angry that I wasn’t supporting him. He tried anyway and he suffered from an electric shock and was hospitalized, as if that wasn’t bad enough he later had to pay the cooling specialist to fix his now damaged HVAC system. He learned his lesson the hard way.
