Paying for HVAC maintenance myself

So it’s been a very long time since I had to rent.

That would have been just prior to my wife and I buying our starter home when we were like late 20’s.

Now, I’m in my late 50’s and am renting again. I forgot just how much I loved owning my house and my HVAC equipment. But thankfully, this is just temporary as we just sold the family home. We renovated, replaced the old HVAC unit and sold it. We were lucky because we hit a hot real estate market right when we needed to. But we also sort of sold our house out from under us as well. Retirement isn’t far for either my wife nor I so we weren’t sure that buying another place here was the thing to do. We are planning on retiring to the south and the land of the heat pump. So we decided to rent for a year and figure it out. The place we’re renting isn’t all that bad. It’s a small 3 bedroom duplex. It’s actually kind of nice because it’s forcing us to get rid of stuff we don’t use. However, the HVAC equipment is old, not very efficient and breaks down. The rental company sends a handyman and the whole cycle happens again. I finally called the HVAC company and paid them to come out and do proper HVAC maintenance on the HVAC equipment. With winter closing on us, I wasn’t about to put my heating fortunes in the handyman’s hands. I don’t like spending the money but it’s better than a heating breakdown in the middle of winter.
