It was so terrible when our sister died in a motorcycle accident; I regularly told her that she should be careful on that bike, and that perhaps she shouldn’t ride it so often. But then she really enjoyed riding that bike. And unfortunately, that’s how she died… The really sad thing is that her fiance passed away a long time ago from cancer, and so her only child was left without any parents! Being a nice uncle, I decided to take our nephew to live with me. I hadn’t seen him in a long while, unfortunately, though. And it seemed that we didn’t really have much in common. Well, one afternoon I was working on our HVAC equipment and my nephew said he wanted to help. He was asking a bunch of questions about how the temperature and climate control plan worked, and he wanted to know what kind of maintenance I was doing. I’m actually not a professional, although I do what I can so I can get minimal professional assistance. I showed our nephew how to shut the power down to the HVAC equipment before I started doing any work on it. I told him it was incredibly important to do that, or you could fry the whole HVAC system or even hurt yourself if you forget to do that. I showed him how to remove the cabinet from the outdoor condenser unit. Then I showed him how to clean it out really well. He got to the point where he could really spray out all the debris and clean it all up on his own, which was great. I showed him how to clean and disinfect all the inside of the HVAC equipment, and how to to check for worn parts in the system. If there are worn parts, I call up the professionals to handle it, I don’t like to mess with that type of maintenance; plus I get tune-ups on my HVAC unit twice per year. Even though it seemed like my nephew and I didn’t have a whole lot in common, handling the HVAC maintenance at home has really helped us to form a good bond!
