I’m actually not above cutting a few 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 our home in A/C comfort all summer has been okay. But, I much prefer going about my life as usual. Who knows, once this thing passes and all of us can venture outside the security of our heating and A/C controlled home, it might seem 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 acting right so I called the heating & cooling company we deal with. They sent out an HVAC pro who then proceeded to supply me some ugly news. The heating and cooling system would need a rather expensive replacement part. My heating and cooling system is not that old, but old enough not to have that replacement part under warranty. For a second, I thought that I might get someone else to try and update the heating and A/C part. It was a stunning revelation to me that I would even consider that option. With what we had spent on this heating and cooling device 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 pro simply schedule the HVAC system repair as soon as possible.
