I was glad our parents had paid extra to get the 24-hour HVAC repair plan.
No one could predict the outcome of last winter. My sister was ready for her skiing trip, but her flight got canceled. The same thing happened to our parents, who were on their way back home after a month abroad. We all had different plans, but it seemed that I’d be spending the holidays with her. That hadn’t happened in a long time. We invited our friends over to make it more fun, but that first night the AC system shut down. My sister kept complaining she was feeling cold, so I told her to crank up the AC. This worked for a short time until the HVAC unit made a loud noise then shut down. We had to find a solution because no one wanted to spend the night in a cold house. I had the number of the HVAC repair and maintenance company on my phone. We called them since we had a 24-hour emergency plan and explained the air conditioner had stopped working. The AC business was near our home, so the HVAC technician arrived half an hour later. He suspected the heating unit had shut down because we hadn’t booked the annual maintenance. No one had remembered to do so during fall, which led to the problem we were facing. The air conditioner was filthy inside and the air filter clogged. There was no way the AC system would have lasted the entire winter. I was glad our parents had paid extra to get the 24-hour HVAC repair plan. Otherwise, we would have paid extra to get the AC expert to our home at that time. He cleaned the air filter and all other air conditioning parts before putting the heating unit together again. The aircon was working once more, and we had a blast with our friends.
