I was surprised that my HVAC company didn’t have any experience with dealing with ventilation systems.
I thought that HVAC stood for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning and not just heating and air conditioning.
I told my HVAC that Ventilation was one of the words in that title and I couldn’t figure out why one of their technicians knew nothing about my system. I called the manufacturer and they gave me a HVAC company that was supposed to be a dealer of my system. When I called the dealer they told me they were an official dealer for my ventilation system, but they were quite a distance from me. They did give me a number for a HVAC company in our area that could deal with the system for me. I was so happy to find out that it was the same HVAC contractor that had installed my ventilation system. He came to my bakery and he looked at the hood. He told me I was right about the fan and although he had to order a new one, he didn’t think it would take more than a couple days to get the new fan for me. I was so happy to hear this news and I told him how I had called another HVAC company and they wanted to replace the entire system. Three days later, there was a new fan in my ventilation hood, and I was back in business. He gave me his card and told me that if I had any further problems that I should call him. He had left the other HVAC company so he could out on his own.
