Fixing the disaster

In the world of heating, ventilation and air conditioning, there exists a small group of people who think that the impossible is possible. They believe the rules are meant to be broken, and that nothing – no matter how ridiculous of a request it could be – is outside the realm of possibility. Fortunately I am not one of those people, but my husband? He’s the leader! When it comes to DIY projects for around the house, my husband thinks he’s more skilled than a twenty-year master of every trade skill out there! He knows how to change an air filter and the oil on our cars, I’ll give him that, but he’s no general contractor. Last year, my husband learned a valuable lesson in not biting off more than he could chew when he decided to install a totally new air conditioning system for our home that used centralized ductwork. That sounded great, except for the fact that we used a radiator for heat! We didn’t have ductwork in the house, so my husband said he would install that, too. I’m not saying I know more about ductwork and where it can or can’t fit, but I’m definitely saying that I knew this was going to end in disaster! For months, my husband tried to find every possible crawlspace in our house to install the new ductwork. Our home was just too small, and the ductwork too large! But, he didn’t finally give up on this project until he nearly gutted every wall in the house. Sometimes I wonder if this man is worth the trouble!
