I’m honestly not above cutting corners if I can save some currency.
Now that doesn’t mean that I’m willing to compromise my ethics or do anything remotely against the law.
Saving currency 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 my home in the A/C comfort all summer time has been okay. But, I much prefer going about my business as usual. Who knows, once this thing passes and we all can venture outside the security of our heating and A/C 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 A/C was not feeling at all right so I called the heating & cooling service business I deal with. They sent out an heating and a/c tech who then proceeded to supply me some very ugly news. The HVAC component would need a rather pricey part replaced. My HVAC system is not outdated but, outdated enough not to have that part under warranty.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 system part. It was a stunning revelation to me that I would even consider that option. With what both of us spent on this heating and A/C component initially, why would I ever put it in any other hands than the pros? Quickly, I came back to my senses and requested that the heating and A/C tech simply schedule the HVAC system repair as soon as possible.
