I was having a really nice birthday party for my young boy who had just turned 10.
All of his friends were over the house and we had some really nice food that we ordered for the party.
All was going well until about 2 hours into the party our central heating and air conditioning system went out! It was a very hot summer day so not having any kind of air conditioning in the house proposed a problem. I picked up the phone and called the local heating and air conditioning company right away to see if they could dispatch one of their certified heating and cooling specialist for emergency HVAC service then and there. Sadly, they did not have any certified heating and air conditioning specialists available for dispatching to perform emergency HVAC service then and there. So I had no choice but to end my boy’s birthday party. Surprisingly he understood and so did his little friends. They were starting to notice how hot it was getting in the house. So what we did was decide to reschedule the party and have it again the following weekend after the central heating and air conditioning system unit got fixed. Which would be a few days from the time it broke down. We ended up going to a motel here in town for a few days to be able to survive in quality air conditioning while we waited for the heating and cooling company to be available. My boy was happy though, it was like a mini vacation in town for his birthday!
