I’m so grateful that a few months ago I invested heavily in upgrading my heating and cooling system at my house.
For many years the central HVAC system had been steadily declining energy efficiency and overall air quality.
No matter how many times I called out the local HVAC technician, he could never seem to improve my slowly degrading air quality control equipment. For years, he recommended that I upgrade my air handling system to a more modern HVAC plan. Of course, I couldn’t afford to purchase brand new heating and cooling equipment, or else I wouldn’t be so desperately trying to keep this sinking ship afloat. I put off the massive HVAC overhaul for over five years, before finally pulling the trigger a few months ago. Thank God I did, because immediately afterwards the COVID-19 pandemic began. I’ve been spending more time with my high quality indoor air than I ever could have expected. Every morning when I wake up and feel ice cold air streaming freely from my air vents, I’m glad that I made this enormous investment in my indoor air quality control. In fact, I liked it so much that my HVAC system is now impeding my plans with other people. Earlier this week, I was going to drive 1200 miles to visit my mom while I have this mandatory time away from work. I was two hours into the trek when she called me and said her AC system had stopped working five minutes earlier. She was trying to get an HVAC technician out to the house to repair the busted air quality control equipment, but the local heating and cooling shop was booked solid. I thought about her broken AC unit for about one moment before I turned my car around. I told my mom to let me know when she had air conditioning again.
