I’m thankful to have such a great partner in my wife.
She’s both supportive and a great counsel as well.
That is a wonderful combination. Her common sense had kept me from doing a lot of stupid stuff that would have otherwise cost me. Recently, she saved me big time when it came to the HVAC equipment. I had noticed that our HVAC cooling seemed to be a bit less than what I was accustomed to. The neighbor next door came over and confirmed my suspicions about the air conditioning in my home. He told me that he had run into a similar problem but the fix was pretty easy. My neighbor said he went out and got a recharge kit, watch a few videos on HVAC recharge online and then did the job himself. This was interesting news to me. If I could save on an HVAC service call, that would be great. And from the way he made it seem, there wasn’t much to it. I watched the same videos online and then asked my wife what she thought about it. She too watched the HVAC recharge DIY videos. And all she said was to check the HVAC equipment warranty before doing anything. Once again, she headed off disaster. For one, I didn’t have the proper tools or gauges they displayed on the HVAC videos. But more importantly, the HVAC warranty expressly stated that only certified HVAC professionals were to work on the HVAC equipment. So had I taken the HVAC service into my own hands and messed something up, I would have voided the entire warranty on our HVAC equipment.
