Ever since I purchased my first home, I’ve been hiring an HVAC professional to come service my furnace and air conditioner at least twice per year.
I had a limited budget after buying my first home, so I knew I needed to spend it sparingly on the various chores and responsibilities that came with owning a home.
For instance, instead of hiring someone to cut my grass twice a month, I decided that my yard was small enough for me to cut on my own. I also decided that instead of paying for the city to come collect my garbage, I’d simply take it to the landfill myself. Taking care of the grass and the trash myself enabled me to have enough money to spend on HVAC maintenance. I was able to hire one of the best HVAC companies in the area to service my furnace and air conditioner twice per year. This was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made because I can honestly say that I’ve never had any issues with my HVAC system. I know a lot of friends that didn’t have the same mindset as me and they experienced a lot of issues with their heat and air. There was always someone without heat during a blizzard or no air conditioning during a heat wave, but not me. As I continued working professionally and was able to bring in more money, I was able to hire someone to cut the grass and the city to remove my trash, but it took time.
