If Your Home Could Express It’s Feelings

People name their cars (“I think I’ll wash Burt and Izzy this weekend”), so we see no issue with a little home personification. You see, we wanted to branch out from the typical blog post about furnace tune ups or other HVAC topics. Not that we feel we’re typical in any way at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® of Elk Grove. But since very few people seem to name their homes, or hug them like they do trees, this is what we imagine some homes might say if they could express their feelings.

Ahem… (clearing throat).

Look, I’m not going to dwell on the whole “there’s not a special day for me” thing. Does it sting a bit that everything under the sun – except me – has a special day or week associated with it? Sure. But lest I digress further, here’s all I’m asking.

Next time you’re enjoying an antioxidant-rich smothie, and organic food made by elves, or checking your smartphone app to see how many calories you burned on the treadmill … please take a moment and put yourself in my shoes, or my foundation as it were, and consider MY needs. Because when you take very good care of me, I will take very good care of you. And the family, including the dog, whom I like a lot. He has this thing about protecting the castle. I like his moxie.

You know I can’t just go rogue and decide to maintain or improve or fix things on my own. Not that you don’t take very good care of things that make me look great. But I’m talking mechanical, under the hood, vital organ stuff. I can’t just call an electrician or plumber to get preventative maintenance (don’t get me started on low flow toilets). I might be able to in the future if smart technology enables me to skip the middleperson (you) and give home service providers a ring. You have the mani-pedi things covered, so I’d make sure critical things get a good checky-loo.

I can already tap the high speed internet (scary, huh?). I’ve checked Angie’s List, Google, Yelp, SuperPages … your browser history … and the BBB for the lowdown on contractors. And I see what my home peeps are Tweeting and posting on Facebook. So I have my sights set on who I’d invite over to work on, well, me. And if, for example, the 5-star consensus is that a particular HVAC contractor (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) is THE one to choose, you listen. So please listen to me.

This particular company arrives On-Time, at our convenience, so we’re not waiting f…o…r…e…v…e..r. Their technicians, in addition to being background-checked, drug-tested, and expertly trained to the point they could probably work on nuclear missle subs, put protective footies on their shoes before entering. Leaves a good impression in our minds, instead of bad impressions on my floors.

Do us both a favor. Give this outfit a ring and set an appointment to get my furnace a tune up and cleaning. If it feels weird to do it while it’s still warm outside, know you’ll have warm fuzzies inside getting this done before winter rears its ugly head. And while you’re at it, could you have them check and clean my ventilation system? Have you seen what’s inside my ducts?? Exactly. No one has, except me. These guys have state-of-the-art, infrared cameras that go everywhere and see everything, and air purification products that eliminate 97% of the tiny, dirty, gross, eye watering and sneeze inducing particles floating through me … and eventually you as well.

So call 847-296-3444 and see if their customer service people are as nice as I hear they are. Tell Rose I said hello. They have a special Early Bird Furnace Tune Up special for just $79, so I don’t want to hear excuses. Just the soft sound of protective footy covered shoes and the friendly voice of Jason, Jeff, Jose, Bryan, Rick, Mike, Jimmy or any of the other highly recommended HVAC technicians from One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® of Elk Grove. Thanks for listening!!

Love and hugs
