I read the paper this afternoon while the Heating plus A/C provider was doing our apartment’s gas furnace/heater repairs.
I was so engrossed in the story I was reading that I did not hear the Heating plus A/C repairman ask if he could uninstall the temperature control device as it had malfunctioned the previous evening. I also needed them to check on the portable space furnace to supply whole new home heating. The story I read was about an Heating plus A/C tech who saved a family from a apartment fire. From the professional’s account of the story, he had gone over to the apartment to do the annual gas furnace/heater tune-up when he noticed the hydronic heating unit was leaking. There is some unit the heating corporation needed to maintenance the unit that he ordered from the local Heating plus A/C business. As they waited for the components to be delivered, the family recounted the symptoms they had noticed before booking the appointment. The gas furnace/heater installation had occurred about a decade ago, meaning the unit was pretty aged. They had a loud bang, and when the corporation worked on, he was surprised to see the quality Heating plus A/C unit catch fire. He immediately ran to the study room shouting ‘fire, fire!’ the family was shocked, they ran out of the apartment and called the fire department. The fire department came in time to save the apartment from engulfing. They called him the quality heating rescuer, an ironic name fit for that situation. I told our engineers about the story, and the two of us all found it fascinating and encouraging that no 1 was hurt in the fire.
