I saved much time in my life with proper planning.
Time is money and I saved time by getting lucky a few times this summer.
One was by winning a scratch off and the other is by being a newly certified HVAC repair specialist, and having to fix my unit. It was summer and I was up in the mountains one day in my summer bungalow. I had a new solar system, roof panels and new plumbing in the place. I decided to stay there and after a hot day I went to turn the HVAC on. I set it to 70 degrees in the house and went to shower. I got back and the cooling unit was off to my surprise and dismay. Not only was I a new repair specialist, but I was working much on these all year and was looking forward to time off from work. I figured 6 to 8 hours it would take me, it was an older air conditioning unit and I wasn’t as used to using these or working on them. I had a few tools with me, and I went to find some old ones in the garage, I got lucky again. I fixed the unit and I finally got it working before I fell asleep. With proper planning, good tools and some knowledge… it isn’t too bad to fix an air conditioner. I was only on the job for 6 months, and because I was hot and had company the next day, fixing the air conditioner was of most importance to me. I stayed up till 1 am to get it done, and made sure I double checked my work in the morning before I went out on the town. Heating and cooling was following me everywhere, even on my summer vacation.
