A self-taught HVAC technician

If there was a person who had or could come up with a hack that he could apply to avoid spending money on something, it was my friend Kody. Kody’s HVAC systems had enough duct tape to stretch for miles. He believed he learned more about heating and anything that had to do with HVAC equipment Kody could fix, not because he had professional training as an HVAC technician but simply because there was the internet. Kody also preferred to spend money on things other than things he could find on the internet and get a possible answer. He installed his heated floors to help with indoor comfort and connected them to the heat pump system as the power source. The system produced quality heating, so I had him install it. He fixed my furnace several times, but the last time he did it, I called the HVAC company. From his attempted furnace/heater repair, I was sure it would only be a matter of time before I started replacing the parts of the heating device. The only thing he has never touched in my house is the dial thermostat. He told me that if it broke down, I could call a heating dealer to fix it. I tried to encourage him to venture into that line of work, but he preferred to work from home on his computer. Some of his energy-saving tips were extreme, and I applied only a few. He only trusted one heating corp to perform annual heat pump service, so I called an HVAC repairman for my HVAC maintenance. Still, he was the one that usually replaced my furnace filter. He is very frugal, but when he sets his mind to trying to fix something, he does extensive research before embarking on it.
