Back in the day, the Borders was not just where people went to read books.
It was more than that; it was a hangout, and parents could absolutely allow you to go to the Borders than if it was a peculiar site. I remember a day I told our mother that I had gone to the Borders while, in reality, I had gone out with some friends. My father, the new corporation at the local Heating plus A/C business, happened to have gone to the Borders that day. The building that housed the Borders needed new air conditioner equipment. They had an air conditioning system that had seen better afternoons, plus even the regular air conditioner tune-up was not laboring anymore. They had contacted a cooling specialist earlier to get advice on the best plan that would guarantee excellent indoor air conditions. The cooling expert had first to inspect the existing component plus the building. He discovered that almost every Heating plus A/C duct had to go, plus no amount of duct sealing would salvage it. He expected it since it was the original ductwork, plus the building was almost as aged as civilization. Together with the professionals, the property owners agreed that a ductless heat pump would be ideal plus more cost-effective. Having a zone control plan was dismissed because it wasn’t practical. They also addressed the temperature control panel. They upgraded the aged temperature control with a single that was more technologically advanced. After the replacement, the Borders management ensured that regular air conditioner tune-up was semi-monthly. The day I claimed to be at the Borders, it had been closed for the replacement process. When our mother asked me where I was, I didn’t even stutter when I said the Borders.
