As a professional in the Heating and Air Conditioning business, I’ve seen some untypical things. However, there is one example that has stuck with me. It was about the time I heard someone say that their meal improved after they turned on a portable a/c. A smart thermostat in the kitchen was the initial reason for my visit to the house. They wished they had more say over the temperature there, particularly for formal suppers. The homeowner thanked me for installing the smart thermostat and they went on with their daily routine. A few weeks later, I got a call from the same homeowner, but this time they wanted something completely different. They asked me to put in a portable a/c unit in their kitchen. I was a bit confused since the smart thermostat should have given ample cooling, but I obliged and installed the unit. The homeowner called me again the following day, but this time he had a different request. The homeowner invited me over for supper so I could witness the transformation brought about by the upgrade of a portable a/c. I was pretty curious, so I accepted the invitation. I noticed the room was much cooler than the rest of the home when I sat down to eat. The supper tasted amazing! Apparently, according to the homeowner, the a/c kept the food fresher and enhanced its taste. Even though the outcome caught me off guard, I had no option but to accept the findings. The homeowner was cheerful that I enjoyed their meal and the portable a/c was a nice touch.
