I like to save money as much as the next guy and maybe even a little bit more.
I was raised to value a dollar and to get as much value out of every dollar that I spent.
That’s the way my dad was and that’s the way I am. My dad might have been a big more extreme about saving money than I am. He actually had a plastic case over the thermostat that he could lock. That’s how intense he was about saving money. The thermostat was going to stay where it was most economical even if he had to lock it down to make that happen. I’m not quite that intense when it comes to heating and cooling savings. However, I make sure that the house is prepped and ready for the summer and winter extremes. This really does make a huge difference when it comes to heating and cooling costs. I also make sure that I’m spending money on HVAC maintenance. Preventive maintenance is something I firmly believe in. And I don’t trust the maintenance or repair of my HVAC equipment to anyone but a certified HVAC technician. This isn’t a problem since I’ve been with the same HVAC company for more than 25 years. In fact, we had to replace the old HVAC unit a few years back. But that old HVAC unit ran 23 years without so much as single hiccup when it came to heating and cooling our home. That’s why I only trust real HVAC professionals when it comes to our heating and cooling equipment.
