For once in a absolutely long time, we have experienced tropical-like rapidly changing temperatures that were unusually high. The heat waves drove most people nuts, then even frigid drinks weren’t enough to supply you the needed thirst relief. But one thing stood out from all this. Something no one honestly expected. That was the loss or disappearance of electric heat pumps mounted outside of homes. But why would anyone steal them, you might ask? Why wouldn’t they just seek help with indoor comfort from a cooling worker, right? Well, for one, it was cheaper to steal one than service malfunctioning cooling equipment. Because of the excess heat, there was rampant overuse of these cooling appliances, & most were losing their ability to last through even the most thorough quality A/C service, but with the high living costs, no one was ready to spend currency to buy any climate control related appliances. That meant a drop in up-to-date Heating, Ventilation, & A/C replacement & little company for any Heating, Ventilation, & A/C company around town. To be safe from theft, we had to consult a local service provider on how best to secure ours in position. So, with the help of a cooling specialist, we found the best way to keep ours safe. This incident got me thinking so much about cooling technology that I decided to read more about the importance of this equipment. It was quite an eye-opener. Ironically, residents were not even able to call on any Heating, Ventilation, & A/C supplier or seek assistance from any cooling company for fear of losing their unit to trusted professionals. Thankfully, the culprits were brought to book, & some residents reclaimed their appliances.
