Bartenders are not Brain Surgeons

There's a reason brain surgeons don't fix furnaces

The Reason A Bartender Isn’t A Brain Surgeon

     There’s a reason why a bartender is not doing brain surgery and it’s the same reason the surgeon doesn’t work on your automobile. It’s because each is good at what they do and they stay within their discipline and field of expertise.

     The photo above shows why your carpenter should not pretend to be an HVAC technician, or even an electrician for that matter. This horror show started when the carpenter accidentally cut through the power supply to the furnace. This caused the furnace not to work. The carpenter then tried his hands at being an electrician, which still didn’t solve the problem – not to mention creating a potentially dangerous situation in the process. Meanwhile, it’s an unusually cold April day with the temperature dropping below 35 degrees and still no heat on in the house.

     So, they did what they should have done in the first place — called Verne & Ellsworth Hann at 216-932-9755. Problem solved.

     And hopefully a lesson or two was learned.

     Notice: This blog post was not written with the intent to malign any neighborhood bartenders or world renown brain surgeons. And we applaud all carpenters who are good at what they do and do just that.

     At Verne & Ellsworth Hann we don’t do brain surgery, make fancy drinks with little umbrellas in them or make custom cabinetry.

     We do heating and cooling and we’re really good at what we do.

     Cheers!

What People Are Saying

  • Your company did an excellent job!  We really appreciated how quickly your crew worked in order to get our heat back on as soon as possible.  Everyone seemed very knowledgeable, professional and excellent in their work!

  • Bill carefully examined the old boiler and piping, checked all the radiators and came up with a replacement proposal.  He explained two issues with the old boiler that other contractors did not notice or did not care to explain.  The first was what’s causing the rust in the boiler and how he was going to minimize the issue in the new system.  The second was how he would re-pipe the kitchen loop so the kitchen wouldn’t be so cold.  Bill addressed each and every question I had.  Although we received four bids that were comparable, we chose Bill Hann’s company because he was knowledgeable, thoughtful and detailed.  The work was completed in two days by a great installer team.  They were on time, professional and courteous.  The new boiler and piping work nicely without any issues and we now have a comfortable kitchen to dine in.  I’d highly recommend them.

  • I strongly recommend Verne & Ellsworth Hann without reservation.  Choosing the right boiler was important and proper installation was critical.  I was impressed with all aspects of the Verne & Ellsworth Hann organization.  Most importantly, Bill Hann earned my trust.  The installation team was excellent.  They were experienced.  They arrived precisely on time every day.  They explained every step of the process.  They worked as a team.  They treated my home with extreme care, as if it was their own.  The installation is a thing of beauty.  Every time I go into my basement I smile.  I now have a reliable, efficient system.  I don’t usually take the time to write recommendations, but in this case I am doing so because it is so well deserved.
