If I were to give you some words of advice, it would be don’t be me. I was a major procrastinator and it really hurt me. I would put off taking care of my heating and air conditioning unit until the last minute or sometimes not make an appointment at all. I just didn’t see the point of having regular tune-ups, as far as I was concerned, it was nothing but an added expense and a way for the HVAC companies to earn an extra buck. Because of this way of thinking I went several years without any kind of heater or a/c maintenance or repair, and I didn’t realize it but the intense summer heater every year had been really taking a toll on my air conditioning unit, and because I waited until I had absolutely no choice but to get my air conditioner seen by a cooling professional I was completely unaware that there was any damage. I was very unhappy when I came home one day after a long day at work and made my way over to the thermostat to change the temperature, only to find that when I tried nothing happened. The air conditioner would make some strange sounds, like it was making an attempt to turn on, but then nothing would happen. It was frustrating and I called the heater and A/C repair company that day and had a HVAC technician out the following day. The cooling professional reluctantly informed me that the damage was extensive and there would need to be many parts replaced in order to get it working again. Man did it hurt my wallet, but I paid the fees and learned to have my heater and a/c regularly maintained.
