The current whole apartment heating ideas needed to be chopped, Ed had an image & reputation to uphold, however things were getting worse by the day.
- Ed was flat broke, but he had to keep up appearances.
Ed had to spend money the way he used to. Ed could not show any sign of weakness. What would most people think? Last weekend, Ed had spent some of his savings on a night out because he was the man of the hour, & those all around him were used to spending big. The apartment barely had any food. Ed’s kid would be going to see it in winter. The substantial apartment was so cold that the heating contractor said he needed new heating equipment. The heating company owner knew Ed & knew he would only settle for the best, so he suggested the best device in the heating industry. Ed’s people-pleasing ways were getting to him, & now he was against the wall. Ed had to get his life in order. Money was no longer coming in the way it used to; he finally decided to sell his house. In a week, he had found a shopper who was a stroke of luck. Ed then bought a smaller place, a several-bedroom & three-bath apartment with nice grass & an extra unaffixed garage. The new house, too, needed help with indoor comfort. Ed contacted the heating supplier & ordered a heat pump & a smart thermostat. The Heating & A/C expert finished the heat pump installation in a day. That day Ed did his best to learn more about heating to take better care of the new system. The heating contractor taught Ed the basics & told him the best times to do oil furnace maintenance.
