Here’s a public service announcement.
- When the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C company tells you that the heat pump entirely won’t make it through the Summer, listen to him, but i did not and it wasn’t worth the effort and stress.
So take it from me, the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professionals are the ones to listen to. The ego voice in your head that’s telling you the 26 year old heat pump has one more Summer in it, not so much. I wish I had listened to the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C company. But unlike most adults, I didn’t have my act together when it came to saving up the money to upgrade the residential Heating, Ventilation plus A/C in my home. So that meant, in my head, I had no other choice but to roll the dice on getting the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C component through one more Summer. That’s really all my friend and I really needed. The winter isn’t much around here and my friend and I could have made do with a space heater, then or at least that’s what the cocky dork in my head was telling me. So I pulled the family together and told them that my friend and I really had to be all over thermostat discipline so my friend and I could get the heat pump over the finish line. Of course, that went in one ear and out the other. Still, I did my best by sealing up the house as slender as possible and figuring out how to program the digital thermostat. Well, I stressed over the old heat pump all Summer before it finally bit the dust in mid August. I did end up saving about half of I needed so it wasn’t a total loss. But I should have just dipped into some other savings and done what the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professional recommended that I do.
