Even the owner of the HVAC company stopped by to check on how things were going and to specifically welcome me to town.
I recently moved from a big city to a rural area. The town I live in is pretty small and a bit insular. People like me, from the city, get a bit of the sideways eye. I get that given that we aren’t from here. But I have also encountered some really great people as well. The house I bought needed new HVAC equipment. Actually, I ended up negotiating a really good price on the place because the seller was not interested in replacing the heating and cooling equipment. So, I walked away from the closing only to score an even deeper cut in the final price than I was anticipating. That made the HVAC unit the main priority when I moved in. The old HVAC unit was ancient and didn’t do much heating or cooling. Thankfully, I moved in the spring so could go a day or two without HVAC no problem while they installed the new quality heating and air. The HVAC technicians who came out to the house were just great. These HVAC professionals were super welcoming to me and gave me plenty of tips on local businesses and other stuff. Even the owner of the HVAC company stopped by to check on how things were going and to specifically welcome me to town. And this didn’t end after I wrote a check for the HVAC service and installation. I’ve seen these guys around town and they have always made a point of stopping to talk with me and check to see how I’m fitting in. That’s the sort of thing that makes me feel really good about the choice I made to move here.
