Jones has been my handyman for the last few years.
She is simply retired, and prefers doing handyman work to keep himself busy. Jones is not fast, but she is skilled, and knows how to repair things. It turns out there are some jobs that Jones can’t handle. Maybe she is getting too old. It’s sad, because now I’m going to have to find someone else I can rely on; then recently I had a concern with the ceiling in my living room. It was starting to sag along one edge, and I was fearful the ceiling might collapse on top of myself and others during brunch. Jones took one look in the attic and told myself and others I needed to call an actual heating, ventilation as well as A/C professional. This was weird, because Jones had run tests on my heating and cooling system several times over the years. She was not heating, ventilation as well as A/C certified but knew her way around a furnace. Jones explained to myself and others that she was smart enough to know her own limitations, and while she could repair some problems with another cooling system, other things were too advanced for him. This is why she preferred working with older model natural gas fuel furnaces and the like, because that was the technology of her generation. The last central air conditioning issue I had was something she had no system how to fix, so she was simply honest about that. At least Jones was able to advocate a reliable heating, ventilation as well as A/C company for myself and others to call. This supplier won’t be as cheap as Jones is, but I know I’ll get the best possible price.
