AC maintenance for the NFL
Adam just called for the thirty minute advance to the customer. There New Guy was, heading over to one of the NFL's greats for some AC maintenance, 8 systems. We started by turning off all the thermostats and moved one by one turning them back on again and confirmed correct labeling. New Guy was in the attic with nitrogen, pvc bag and other necessary maintenance tools when he received a phone call from the lead technician.
"Come check this out!" Adam
"On my way". New Guy
"I'm over in his work out barn" Adam
Heading over to the only other building on his property I passed large tractor tires that looked to be used for flipping or hitting. Mr. Ninja didn't get a couple of Super Bowl rings eating bad and watching T.V., that's for sure. And his Gym was spectacular.
"What's up?" New Guy said walking towards Adam
Check out this thing he's got." Adam said excitedly
"Dude, we shouldn't mess with his equipment." New Guy
"It was in the way of where we are going to work and Mr.Ninja was already here and knows we must handle it, I'm just getting familiar with it." Adam said smiling like recently star struck
"Go to the pool area and ask him where the other four outdoor units are" Adam
"Come on man can you do it? I wore a dirty shirt today." New guy
"Haha, you're never scared if you're prepared" Adam said with a look of pure joy
New guy headed for the back of the house where he saw a pool with a grotto and Mr.Ninja talking with the realtor.
"Excuse me, can you direct me to your outdoor units?" New Guy
"They're over there." He said pointing to them "and I have an iron if you want to get out some of the wrinkles in that shirt of yours!" Joked Ninja
New Guy laughed it off and helped complete the remainder of the AC maintenance. New guy and Adam cleared the condensate drains, checked amp draws, added refrigerant to a couple of units and made sure all units are operating properly.
