It is very important to have a good working AC if you live on the west coast, near the beach.
My family and I live on the west coast in a coastal city called Santa Barbara.
Santa Barbara has a Mediterranean climate. Although it is never extremely hot, the temperatures often require AC during the summer months. When my wife and I were building our house in Santa Barbara, we hired a heating and AC company to install radiant flooring throughout the house. We couldn’t find a place in Santa Barbara to do the work, so we had to contact someone from Los Angeles. The contractors were only available on the weekends. I needed a good AC technician for the job, so I paid the extra fees and the contractors came up the coast to complete the work last Saturday. The technicians arrived 30 minutes late. I didn’t complain at first, because traffic can be an issue from time to time. When the contractors walked through the front door, the odor of marijuana was unmistakable. Each one of the contractors smelled like they were working in a field of marijuana. I didn’t say anything at the time, but when I saw one of the contractors smoking a marijuana joint in the backyard, I decided to voice my opinion. I threatened to send the contractors home without pay and I told them that I would hire another person to finish the job if they showed up stoned the next day. I didn’t want stoned workers playing with electricity on my watch.
