I didn’t want to purchase an A/C through the Heating plus Air Conditioning dealer.
When they provided the price for the A/C unit, I thought I was going to faint.
It was so high! I couldn’t suppose anyone would spend more than $5000 for a central a/c unit. I started looking online, and I found more than 2 locations where I could buy the air conditioner. The one that I liked provided an air conditioner that was less than $1000 and that included tax and delivery, too. When the delivery man arrived, he asked if there was anyone available to help him with the package because it was so big. He said he couldn’t get it into the home by himself. When I said I had no one there, and I couldn’t help because I had shoulder surgery, he tried to do it. He wrestled the A/C component off the truck and left it on the sidewalk. I called the Heating plus Air Conditioning business and told them I had the a/c component and I wanted them to come to the home and install it for me. I was no longer getting a free upgrade, and I had to get the A/C component off the sidewalk. It was blocking people who were walking, and I couldn’t leave it there for the more than 2 mornings it was going to take to get the Heating plus Air Conditioning company to the house to install it. The delivery man, not believing how giant the package was, leaving it on the sidewalk, and now needing to spend money to get the A/C component onto the porch was just too much. Buying the A/C component online was becoming a huge pain for me. When the Heating and Air Conditioning company finally arrived, they told me that it was the wrong size, and it was used and not brand new!
