For a minute, I thought that I might get someone else to try and replace the HVAC part
I’m certainly not above cutting some corners if I can save some money. Now that doesn’t mean that I’m willing to compromise my ethics or do anything remotely against the law. Saving money is simply not worth that. Yet, the fact that this pandemic is upending my life, I am on the lookout for ways to reduce costs. Working from home in the HVAC comfort all summer has been okay. But, I much prefer going about business as usual. Who knows, once this thing passes and we can venture outside the security of our HVAC controlled home, it might feel normal again. But honestly, with the way things are going, I’m not counting on it. In fact, I surprised myself the other day. The HVAC was not feeling at all right so I called the heating & cooling company we deal with. They sent out an HVAC tech who then proceeded to give me some ugly news. The HVAC would need a rather expensive part replaced. My HVAC is not old but, old enough not to have that part under warranty. For a minute, I thought that I might get someone else to try and replace the HVAC part. It was a stunning revelation to me that I would even consider that option. With what we spent on this HVAC unit initially, why would I ever put it in any other hands than the pros? Quickly, I came back to my senses and asked that the HVAC tech simply schedule the HVAC repair as soon as possible.
