One of the best lessons I l acquired from my dad was to always make sure I have things done right the first time. I can almost hear her voice now, telling myself and others how important it is to make sure you don’t have to revisit your work! That advice guides myself and others still this week, as I make that that I don’t accept shoddy work from a contractor, or accept mediocre efforts from colleagues in the workplace. As a heating, ventilation & air conditioning specialist, I often work with weird maintenance professionals, as well as customers that are convinced they think what works bestâ€¦ However, as a consultant for the Heating & A/C replacement team, my task is just as my father said – to make sure things are done right the first time! So, at this particular client’s home, the two of us ran into a large issue with the structure of their home. The heating & air conditioning they wanted called for using big, bulky HVAC duct that would run through the ceiling of the house. The only problem was, the walls & thresholds between floors were too thin! They wouldn’t be able to fit something love what the buyer wanted. So instead of the large boxy HVAC duct, I had specially designed, small diameter HVAC duct installed in their beach house instead. This kind of HVAC duct allowed their heating & air conditioning system to still flow abruptly through the house, but in easily narrow pipe-like HVAC duct. This was the perfect solution! Now, the buyer didn’t have to make critical structural changes to their beach house just to accommodate the new Heating & A/C system.
