When times are tough, the first thing every one of us look for is the expenses every one of us can do without; I am currently going through such hard times, & the only thing I can do is review my spending.
Right now, I eat out less & less, don’t have meetings anyhow, I don’t go out & only buy essentials.
I am still not saving enough, so when I planned to end my cable subscription, I also decided to review my heating & cooling equipment. I have been paying irregular bills in the last few months, but it’s all high, above my average budget, when I first did the HVAC installation! So I called in an HVAC serviceman to do an ad hoc inspection & service, then the results revealed a horrifying condition of the ducts & AC unit. I could barely pay for this inspection, & I don’t guess I would afford duct sealing or an AC filter exchange, and but that was going to be the least of my worries, & it turns out I had to update the hybrid HVAC system because it’s past its useful life. I sacrificed to get the HVAC for sale from a local HVAC dealer, but I didn’t expect what came next. Thinking I hadsave money by doing a DIY installation, it turns out I need to have a particular EPA certification to handle a cooling & heating machine installation with a refrigerant. I had no choice but to recall the specialist to repair the a/c. But at least I got to set the control device & reset the air duct! After all, common temperature control was going to save myself and others money. I wonder how I could manage if I had to deal with more demanding device love a steam boiler.
