On Christmas day, when all of the normal gifts were opened, my dad grabbed a piece of paper and handed it to my mom as a gift
On the days leading up to Christmas, my mom was really upset. Though everyone in the house had stacks of presents waiting for them, including my dad, my mom didn’t have that many gifts. Specifically, my mom didn’t see any gift that was supposed to be from my dad. This really upset here. However, little did she know that my dad had been preparing the best gift of all. For months and months, my mother had been complaining about our furnace. The furnace was loud, old, and blew dust all over the house. Also, our furnace was starting to cost a lot of money on repairs, and it was already expensive to use. My dad decided to begin contacting HVAC companies in our area to find quotes for heating systems that could replace our furnace. However, we weren’t just looking for a furnace. He wanted to switch it up to make my mom really surprised. He started contacting general contractors, and with the help of the HVAC technicians, he was going to install radiant heated flooring. With radiant heated flooring, he would no longer have to worry about forced-air heating or drafty spots. It would also be completely silent and efficient. On Christmas day, when all of the normal gifts were opened, my dad grabbed a piece of paper and handed it to my mom as a gift. It was a quote from the HVAC technician and contractor for the installation of radiant heated flooring, along with the new floors that would have to go all around the house. The quote also mentioned that it had already been paid! My mom was so excited!
