Alfred is a wizard when it comes to machines.
This is a guy who sees a problem and in a short while, he’s trying to come up with a solution.
Alfred lives in a small rural community in an area full of farmers. Given the remoteness of the location, Alfred’s dad did his best to solve issues rather than hire an expert from town. It cost so much to get them there so he always came up with another way to solve the problem. This led Alfred to also take up the same skills, only that he went to engineering school and is now qualified to do what he does. Alfred can work on numerous things in his home, but one area he steers clear is the heating and cooling system. See, there was this incident a while back where the cooling system was failing to meet their needs. Alfred thought it would be better to try and fix the faulty cooling system instead of hiring an HVAC expert from town. His wife protested saying this was a new HVAC system and it was better to leave it to the professionals. But, Alfred would hear none of it and went on to open up the heating and cooling system. Needless to say, he made things worse and his wife made him regret ever touching the unit. They had to call an HVAC expert to come and fix the faulty cooling system. And all this happened in the middle of a heat wave. Thankfully, the damage wasn’t permanent and Alfred was so relieved they didn’t have to purchase a new system for their home.
