Rules and structure play a very important role in my life. This was once the norm for many more people. Now, one can be considered a bit gullible for following the rules or doing what’s ethical. So, it should not surprise anyone that I am choosing the HVAC professionals to make important repairs to my HVAC system. But that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been tempted to do otherwise. The economic slow down has resulted in my monthly income getting cut. Thus, our household budget is much tighter. I am working from the HVAC comfort of my home so much of my revenue goals don’t get met. That will be the case for some time now. We have actually targeted the HVAC output as we cut costs. The summer in this house was a bit warmer. We pushed the HVAC setting up a good bit throughout the summer. However, we saved more than 15 percent over the summer with that effort. But we got some bad news just as the summer was ending. The HVAC tech was doing the semi annual service when he noted that a specific type of coil or something had to be removed and replaced. This was not going to be cheap. That’s when I considered breaking my own rule and going to a handyman type for the HVAC repair. This would have saved a lot of money. But, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that my rule for professional HVAC repair is important. It’s not one to break even during uncertain times. So, it was actually pretty easy to call the pros and schedule the repair.
