Having been in the HVAC field for so many years, I have seen a lot of things. Coming up on my 30th year in the business working on fixing broken down units, I thought that I had seen it all. I was ninety nine percent sure, but after a very interesting experience the other day I realized that you can never truly see all of the crazy things that come with being an HVAC repairman in just one lifetime! I received a call last week that a family was having a problem with their heating and cooling unit. There was a long list of problems that they mentioned with the unit, so I wasn’t sure to expect when I arrived to the house. When I walked into the house and began to check out the heating and cooling unit I noticed that there was a very loud banging sound coming from it as if something was stuck inside. After further investigation, I couldn’t believe what I found inside. This family had somehow managed to get an entire chess set stuck down deep into this unit, causing a massive amount of damage to the unit while creating that loud noise whenever the unit was on. I asked how in the hell they managed to get an entire chess set stuck down there, and all I recieved for an answer was a sheepish smile and a shrug. My HVAC career is coming to a close in two months when I retire, and to be honest I am going to miss the job mostly because of the hilarious random things that happen like with this family.
