Even if you’re somebody who likes to save money, you still have to draw the line somewhere.
I figured this out the hard way last summer when I found out that I needed to replace the central air conditioning system in our house. We had the same central air conditioning system that was originally installed in the house, and it was built back in 1978. Needless to say, it was really time for us to get an upgraded A/C system. I knew that this was the case, and so I started to shop around at different HVAC companies here in town. I was looking for the best deal that I could possibly find, because I will readily admit that I am cheap and I’m a little bit of a bargain shopper. I certainly didn’t want to pay full price for a new cooling system, and I guess at that point I was willing to sacrifice a little bit of the quality I would be getting for the lower price. Looking back on it now, I wish that I wouldn’t have been so stingy with my money! I think that you have to draw the line somewhere when you want to save money, especially when it comes to your heating and cooling system. When you think about it, the indoor air quality in your home is probably the most important investment that you’re going to make into your family’s respiratory health. It’s not really something that you should skimp on. Now that I’ve already had to have the new A/C repaired twice already, I realize that I definitely should’ve spent the extra money on a higher quality brand.
