I’m absolutely not above cutting some corners if I can save some money.
Now that doesn’t mean that I’m willing to compromise my morals or do anything remotely against the law.
Saving money is simply not worth that. Yet, the fact that this pandemic is upending our lives, I am on the lookout for ways to reduce costs. Working from our in the HVAC system comfort all summer long has been okay. But, I much prefer going about our business as usual. Who knows, once this thing passes and we can venture outside the security of our HVAC controlled homes, it might feel almost 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 working right so I called the heating & cooling service company we deal with. They sent out an HVAC specialist who then proceeded to supply me some ugly news. The HVAC unit would need a rather high-priced part replaced. My HVAC unit is not that old but it’s 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 part. It was a stunning revelation to me that I would even consider that option. With what we spent on this HVAC component initially, why would I ever put it in any other hands than the specialists? I quickly came back to my senses and asked that the HVAC specialist simply schedule the HVAC system repair as soon as possible.
