I wish I could be as prepared for other life swings as I was for changing out the HVAC equipment.
This was something that I tried to anticipate but also was totally dreading; after the heat pump turned 20, my amazing wife thought it would be a smart idea to start saving money for the new HVAC unit.
And wow, was she ever prescient; my pal and I were able to save money for more than one full year before the HVAC worker informed us that our heat pump was on the way out… He also told us this during one of the seasonal HVAC repair appointments that my unbelievable friend and I get every year. And I’m so thankful that my unbelievable friend and I had this heads up because it actually served us well; however, where my unbelievable friend and I live, there isn’t much demand for heating during the winter. While my unbelievable friend and I may need some heating from the heat pump once in a while, it’s never much; and so our own heating costs are pretty much negligible during the winter. My main pal and I could even get by with a space heating system if necessary. So having all that time to choose the sort of HVAC technology plus residential HVAC was awesome. My best pal and I were able to meet with the HVAC professionals to learn all about the advancement in HVAC technology over the last quarter of a century. My pal and I absolutely were able to purchase the modern HVAC equipment with an eye toward selling the house in the next few years; indeed, the HVAC supplier did us a real solid with all the time my unbelievable friend and I had to prepare for that HVAC update.
