It always made me feel slightly uncomfortable repairing an ancient heating and air conditioning machine. But it is a request I get every now and then. Oftentimes it is because people can’t afford to get a new air conditioning device, or for some reason, they keep clinging to the idea that the old one will work efficiently again. I feel bad for the families that can’t afford it, but I do wish they would get a payment plan for a new heating and A/C machine. The reason why I feel uncomfortable repairing old heating and A/C machines is not because I don’t know how. No,I have quite a bit of experience with repairing heating and air conditioning machines, but new and old. It is because I feel like I am scamming the family. I know that the old machine is not going to last much longer and it is going to cost them far more money in the long run. So continually repairing an old machine feels like I am stealing from them, even though they are the ones who ask for it. Perhaps that is a weird way to feel, but that is exactly how I feel. I have recommended for most people to try a HVAC service plan, a heating and cooling service plan helps prevent most issues from occurring, and that will help with most machines. For the ones that are too far gone, well there is not much I can do for them except hope that the family chooses to get a new HVAC installation.
