It would be the understatement of the year to say I am not a poetry aficionado. Unless, of course, we are talking about: “There once was a man from Nantucket.”

So, obviously, I will leave the poetry to others. This one from contractor Phil Jeffers recently crossed my desk and I thought I would share. Enjoy.


When summer comes all is not lost,  
  You’ll have the lowest operating costs.

Weather you live in Your-Town, or reside in Mumfort,  
  You will have much better indoor comfort.

Living in a house, or living in a shoe,  
  Your new system will dramatically increase your IAQ.

At night you hear crickets, you here the hounds,  
  Cause new units make much less sounds.

Living in the country or in the city,  
  You’ll have much better at control of Hu-Mid-Dity.

The CFC phase-out is under way,  
  No problem, new units run on environmentally friendly R410a.

Let me tell you just what the facts is,  
  You can get money back when you do your taxes.

You’ll have peace of mind for your money spent.  
  Knowing you’ve lowered your carbon footprint.

As you live in your house, or pass it on to your successors, 
  You’ll be much more comfortable with two stage compressors.

And if your unit should ever “breaky”  
  Lucky for you, you’ll have longer warren-tehe!
