Getting Cooked in the Florida Heat

4531535_sWhen I first moved to Ocala, Florida, I took the AC for granted. I had just started a job in the area after moving from Washington, D.C. I had recently graduated from university and this was my first big boy job. I moved out of my parents’ house and even though my mom hated that I was moving down to Florida (a million miles away from her, apparently), she was proud of me for making a move for myself. It was my first time out of the house. I had stayed home during my college years to help around the house.

I applied to several jobs a few months before graduating, but none of them would take in Washington. I made it to interviews, but I never made it past the second round. So, I decided to give a couple of jobs out-of-state a shot just to see if anything would come of it. And it did. I got a job in Florida after interviewing with them through Skype, they asked me to fly down one week to meet me in person. They paid for my flight, which was really nice and they offered me the job after giving me a mini tour of the area and the company.

So, I moved down about a month later once I had graduated and my parents gave me the money for a down payment for a studio. I loved the independence, but I did really miss my family. And I adopted two stray cats who would hang about my apartment front door. I think their family had left without them and it broke my heart. So I took them in.

I didn’t have a landlord because I had bought my studio, so when the AC broke down I had no idea what to do. I looked all over for quick service, but everyone quoted me on coming out a few days after. I couldn’t bear the heat, I truly felt as though I were melting. So, I called Cook’s Air Conditioning & Heating Specialists. They were the most helpful. They came out the same day and took care of my AC. And they put me on their Gold membership plan to come and check it regularly. I have never been more grateful to a repair man in my life!
