I don’t imagine there are a ton of people who are super eager to spend money to replace appliances.
But maybe not.
My wife has waited for years to be able to redo our kitchen. There were hours and hours of research before she found just the kitchen appliances she wanted. She and I sort of did the same thing when it came to replacing the HVAC system. Our home was brand new when we moved in. It was in a planned development. But, like the kitchen appliances, we weren’t all that wild about everything that came with the house. I felt that way about the HVAC unit. It did okay with the basic heating and cooling of our home. And, I was sure to make regular maintenance a priority. However, after less than 15 years of service, our HVAC tech notified us that it was in steep decline. I can’t say I was overly surprised given the quality of the HVAC unit. This led me to contact the HVAC contractor. Together, we would figure out a better replacement model and one that would be a real asset to our home. It all went to plan and we were able to settle on a model and on financial terms as well. What I wasn’t prepared for was how incredible the new HVAC would turn out to be. Like my wife and her new kitchen, I am just amazed by the efficiency and power of our new HVAC unit. The utility bills are far less and the house feels the most comfortable it ever has. I guess it was worth the wait.
