When I graduated from university, I believed I was prepared & well-equipped with all the comprehension & tools that I needed to go out into the world & survive as an adult.
I was so naive to how little I knew about what it meant to be an adult living in a beach house by myself.
School prepared myself and others for a job in corporate America, however it easily did not prepare myself and others for everyday problems, so I had to learn particular things as life unfolded. Talk about on the task training. One section in which I lacked the necessary training was how to properly operate & maintain an Heating, Ventilation & A/C unit. Prior to graduating from university, those service responsibilities always belonged to someone else. My dad made sure that all of us had air conditioner when I lived at home, & when I lived in a dorm or university apartment, the janitorial crew worked on all the service of those Heating, Ventilation & A/C systems. Therefore, when I lived on my own, I was completely oblivious to the need to have an Heating, Ventilation & A/C service plan. I was unaware that the air conditioning system filter should be changed every 3 to 6 weeks, I didn’t believe that air ducts needed to be properly cleaned, & finally, I was unaware that the Heating, Ventilation & A/C machine needed to be worked on twice per year. Up until that point in my life, I had never interacted with an Heating, Ventilation & A/C serviceman, & my first interaction came only after my air conditioning system stopped laboring. I l gained a lot about the service of the Heating, Ventilation & A/C system from that worker. She provided so more than 2 tips about how to conserve energy and a detailed checklist on the service that I should perform to guarantee that my machine ran efficiently. To this day, I still use those tips & the checklist as section of my Heating, Ventilation & A/C service plan, therefore, I’m so grateful for that Heating, Ventilation & A/C service worker.
