I thought I might could transition my Heating & A/C system from Wintertime into Springtime and then Summer without any large concerns.
It’s been a worried & frustrating afternoon today. My a/c has been acting quite odd, so I called up a local Heating & A/C company to come over & examine it for me. I was hoping he’d come to the door to tell me about an easy repair. However, that wasn’t the case at all. He took me outside to have a look at my HVAC unit. He showed me all the rust & dust all around it. The old AC component came as original equipment with the house, so I couldn’t figure out the exact age of it. However I could see that it wasn’t at all new. He also asked me if I’d seen an increase in the energy bills each month . I wasn’t 100% sure, so I went inside the house to look at the bills from the past few cycles. I was simply floored when I saw the slowly rising prices. It was just small enough to go unobserved, but steep enough to become a problem over time. The Heating & A/C worker told me this was a common problem with dying AC units. However before he left, he stated it would be more beneficial for me to stop repairing the AC component and just replace it. I was quite devastated because this was something I wasn’t expecting at all. I thought I might could transition my Heating & A/C system from Wintertime into Springtime and then Summer without any large concerns. Well clearly, I was wrong. I asked him just how much it would be to replace it. He told me a number that was twice as much as I had been expecting! Looks as though we won’t be taking any expensive Summer vacations during this year.
