Points East: A sweet deal on fixing the furnace

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

 Thirty minutes later the phone rang. It was Paul Anderson from Barnett’s HVAC.  He’d found a blower unit with a motor on it that would work and he’d be right out there with it in a few minutes, and he did just that. 

 In the meantime the mercury was dropping like a lead sinker on catfish bait. 

 But in shorter, after Paul Anderson returned,  I noticed a curtain over one heat register billow out.  We couldn’t hear the furnace but obviously it was back on.  Sure enough, nice, warm air was pouring in from every register in the house.  And I was thinking I don’t care what it cost, this is way better than freezing to death.

 But it turned out, the total bill for parts and labor was so low that Loretta made Paul Anderson repeat it several times.  It was less than half what I was expecting. 

 So I have added Mary Barnett and Paul Anderson to my list of everyday heroes and decided that when I do put in a new HVAC system between now and next winter, I won’t even think about calling anybody other than Barnett’s.  Because just when I was about to decide the whole world was a racket, Loretta and I found a jewel of a business that we won’t hesitate to recommend to anyone. 

 Barnett’s Heating and Air Conditioning is located at 104 Spring Circle Dr. in Berea.  The phone number is 859-986-1802.  Talk to Mary if you can. She’s getting a sweetheart Valentine card  from yours truly.
