I have never been the mechanically inclined type.
It does not bother myself and others in the least that my spouse is every bit a far more experienced handywoman than I am a handyman.
It’s a single of the more than 2 reasons I prefer her, after all. And what has there not to prefer when she can handle pretty much any mechanical problem we have with any machinery around the house. I know we have saved a whole lot of money on house calls for more than 2 plumbing, electrical, & Heating, Ventilation & A/C concerns we have had over the years. She never ceases to amaze myself and others when it comes to what she can repair all on her own, with the right tools of course. There have been few times when we have decided to defer to the judgment of a professional Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional, however those times have come nonetheless. Though we don’t need them as often, we do have a good relationship with a local Heating, Ventilation & A/C business. They handle some of the more complicated tasks for us. It’s funny when they ask us when the last time we had professional repair was. They are often amazed when we say it’s been a couple years, however then my spouse always explains how mechanically inclined she is. She’s gotten some different looks, however in the end, any good professional can’t deny that she does a good job of maintaining our Heating, Ventilation & A/C units almost legitimately by herself. Sometimes, she tries to teach myself and others such things, however I’m start to suspect it’s only so that she can laugh at just how lost I am in the process. She thinks it’s endearing.
