Gargaro's World: Who Needs Richard Simmons?

July 24, 2008

Add yet another item to the list of important benefits the HVAC industry gives people. That item would be a weight loss program.

At least that is what an air-conditioner vent was used for by Darryl Layne Norris. According to an Associated Press report, Norris used the vent to escape from Waller County Jail in Hempstead, Texas. The murder suspect reportedly lost weight so he could fit through the vent that is less than one foot wide. By the way, I hope law enforcement keeps that in mind when one of the Olsen twins inevitable ends up behind bars.

According to the report, Norris usually weighs 160 pounds but had been losing weight. In addition, the AP reported the suspect was caught while taking a dip in a motel swimming pool. Because that is exactly what you want to make time for when you are running from the law - an evening swim.

So in addition to keeping customers cool and improving their breathing, an HVAC contractor can also help customers lose weight. Can someone send the best HVAC contractor in the country to Oprah Winfrey’s house?
