I had not seen mum in a long time.
I had moved apartments twice and settled in my new home; mum still needed to arrive.
When mum announced that she was visiting, I got excited and looked forward to seeing her and spending time with her. I was still settling into my new home and needed to upgrade my quality HVAC equipment. I also was not financially planning for a trip to the air conditioning provider’s store. I picked mum up from the airport on a hot summer Friday evening. I am grateful for the car’s quality air conditioner. However, the air quality and indoor comfort were not welcoming when we got home. Despite that, mum and I had a great dinner but called it a night early because we were tired. The next day, mum surprised me by having several air conditioning technicians from the local air conditioning company come to the house with a new multi-split air conditioner. I was shocked but also touched. Mum knew I had been struggling and could not bear the heat in my home, so she had arranged for the a/c serviceman to do the HVAC installation as soon as possible. As professionals from the cooling industry did their job, mum and I enjoyed iced coffee as we chatted. The professionals who knew more about air conditioning advised me to ensure I get HVAC maintenance done annually. They reminded me to ensure whenever I do the air conditioning repair. I have the thermostat also checked. I can now change the air filters whenever I need to improve the air quality.
