There is just something so appealing to me about being a good neighbor.
When I was growing up, our neighbors weren’t exactly neighborly.
We lived in a part of town that was pretty rough due to the income level of those who lived there. My parents were doing the best they could but the both struggled with a host of problems. The home we lived in barely even had working residential HVAC. It was also always a mess and not a place that was conducive to the makings of a happy home. Perhaps this is why it’s so important for me to create a happy home and be a good neighbor as well. I’m just so lucky that I was able to come out of where I started with a chance at this sort of life. We are lucky to own a nice home with great quality heating and air among many other amenities. And where we live is awesome. Our neighborhood really is a close community without going too far and having people in your business. So when I got a text from the guy down the street to come hold a flashlight while he worked on his HVAC unit, I was for sure happy to help. But I also knew that this guy wasn’t an HVAC professional so I was a bit conflicted when it came helping him. Once I got over there, I just decided that I’d suggest that he call an HVAC technician to do the work. Pointing out that if we did it, then the HVAC warranty would most likely be voided was what sealed the deal.
