The best way to explain things is to put it into plain, simple facts. So, let’s go then. When it is raining outside, you take your umbrella with you. If it is really cold outside, you will probably be wearing a warm, weatherproof jacket as well. If it is really pleasant, warm and sunny outside, you could be wearing a comfy pair of Bermuda shorts to go with your smart-looking golfing tee. When it is really cold inside, your heating system could have broken down. Same goes for when you’re dripping with sweat in the living room.
Your air conditioning system could have taken a vacation. And in both cases, heaven forbid that this should be happening to you, you get hold of the heating and cooling demotte in company. Your first port of call is probably going to be one of the company’s consultants. Not much to do here. It is all very plain and simple. You just say that your heating system’s not working. And your AC is on the blink too. That’s all. Now because it’s both, this could be a bit tricky. Do they send both technicians, both at the same time?
Or to give everyone their necessary space, do they send one technician today, and then the next one can come over tomorrow. But okay, it’s a rather unusual emergency situation now. Both systems have packed up, both around the same time. And it is both hot and cold. What strange weather we seem to be having. Maybe this isn’t so unusual after all, what with all the extremities of global warming, climate change and all.
But the best way to avoid all this inconvenience and unpleasantness is to make sure that both systems are enjoying a regular maintenance and inspection.
