When someone goes “above and beyond,” it usually means he or she exceeds normal expectations. But for Greg Hunsicker, vice president of McElroy’s Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning of Topeka, Kan., and a pilot who owns a small aerobatic airplane, the phrase has dual meaning.
Earlier this year, Hunsicker answered a no-heat call for a family of five in Topeka during the coldest weather the area had experienced all year. The cause: A faulty valve on an aging boiler in one of the oldest homes in the area. The solution: A new boiler.
