Melissa and I go to the local diner almost every weekend to eat and catch up.
The restaurant was always warm there during winter and fall, and it was always fresh and relaxed in summer.
I concluded that they had an impeccable quality HVAC unit that always seemed in good condition. Our favorite waiter, Trip, once told me that the diner owner was a big shot in the cooling industry. That explained why the restaurant never seemed to falter in indoor comfort. Melissa loves their vanilla-mint milkshake, and my air conditioning system is not the most efficient, and that is why we enjoy being at the diner. One Saturday evening, a group of young-looking individuals walked into the restaurant. They were chatting loudly but not annoyingly loud; we could hear their conversations as I watched Melissa Google something that looked like her programmable thermostat. They took up the booth behind us, so I could listen to them even though I could not see them. From their conversations, I could tell they knew much about cooling technology. One of them was a cooling expert because she told them about her first air conditioning installation earlier that day. They then got into a lively discussion about their first time dealing with heat and AC products. Even I laughed when one HVAC tech said that a homeowner once told him that his cooling equipment was probably older than him. Mine, too, probably was, and I decided there and then to purchase a new HVAC system because even with all the maintenance and regularly changing the air conditioning filter, it was no longer working. The new contractor had told me so, but I had not given the matter much thought until the funny remark by the young HVAC professional.
