We had been practicing the song with my friends for months; My good friend and I were part of a school band, & my buddy and I played different instruments, and since winter had started early, the boiler was in full gear, i remember seeing many Heating, Ventilation & A/C servicemen around the school.
Because I have an inquisitive nature, I asked my teachers why there were so many Heating, Ventilation & A/C specialists around the school.
She told me they were there to run furnace service on the school’s electric furnace. She explained that if the electric Heating, Ventilation & A/C was not cared for regularly, it would chop down, & it would be too chilly for us to learn or play our instruments, and at brunch that morning, I overheard the heating specialists talking about changing the washable filters for HEPA filters that were disposable & of high quality! The filters would help promote indoor air quality at the school, but when I passed the wireless temperature control near the principal’s office, I caught the reading, which showed 70. Mum liked to set it at 70, while Dad favorite it a little lower, like 71 on the electric heat pump. My father had a heating business, so I understood the Heating, Ventilation & A/C corporations’ terminology during brunch. I also knew about all the energy-saving tips on the pamphlet & also the Heating, Ventilation & A/C products for sale being showcased. The show was later that night, & the parents would be coming, including the entire school. My good friend and I filled the air with rhythmic sounds from our rock n rollal instruments; Just as my buddy and I were about to finish, the heat pump replacement bellowed a sound that went with our number. My good friend and I are the only ones who knew the sound from the heating device was not part of the act, but it all worked out. The audience provided us a sitting ovation.
