One of our fondest memories as a child is going up on the roof with our dad! I’ve never been afraid of heights–in fact I love them–but our parents always sad I would get hurt if I tried to climb too high on our own, then so, while I had little trees I could play in while Mom & Dad were outside, the highest I could get was when dad did his twice yearly fire safety. See, I grew up in the southwest, in an part where the most proper tree is pine, but all of us also lived in a time where fireworks were legal in the state I lived in; The last thing you ever wanted to have happen was a bottle rocket to get on your roof, when you had a bunch of pine needles piling up. This was a fast track to a apartment fire. So, twice a year our dad would get on the roof & sweep it off. I was allowed to come up, as long as I kept a few feet away from the edge. I would help by throw off branches & sweeping the few flat planes, while our dad was up there, he would also sweep the chimney of our fireplace. In just caring for the fireplace twice a year, our dad made sure that the two of us could use this heating system to supplement our Heating, Ventilation & A/C idea in the Winter, separate from worrying about a chimney fire. These strange little childhood moments taught me something actually important about heating & A/C service plus beach apartment care: be prepared for the worst, & you can often avoid a tragedy entirely.
