I didn’t want to go without air conditioning.
- I’m not one of these people who puts my money ahead of my comfort.
When I first got air conditioning, my husband didn’t think it was necessary. He said the window air conditioning units worked well, and they were cheaper. When they began dying one-by-one, he wanted to start replacing them. I told him it would be just as expensive to replace every window air conditioning unit, as it was to get a central air conditioning unit. He didn’t believe me, but he called the HVAC company and had a technician come to the house and give us a quote for the central AC unit. Once the air conditioning was installed, my husband was happy he had done it. He told me when this air conditioning unit died, we were going back to window air conditioning units. He wasn’t going through the hassle of having another HVAC system installed, and he didn’t want to put that much money out. So, here it is fifteen years later, and the air conditioning unit died. I called to make an appointment to have a technician come to the house and inspect the AC unit. I told them I thought the air conditioner was dead, but I needed to make sure. I also mentioned my husband’s ideas on getting window air conditioning units if this one died. When the HVAC technician arrived, I kept hoping it was just the thermostat. I even asked if he was sure it isn’t the thermostat, but he said it was the air conditioning unit that died.
