Making a hard HVAC decision
Tough decisions are not exactly my forte. I’m more the sort who tends to overthink, weigh every aspect and then still want to know what someone else thinks. So it goes with all manner of things in my life from car buying to replacing the HVAC. I just have the worst time simply pulling the trigger on a decision. So, when the HVAC tech came to the door to tell me that my HVAC was on its last legs, I felt a drop of sweat roll down my back. I tried to pigeon hole the HVAC guy with all manner of questions. Like, how long will it last? Is there an HVAC repair that will make it work better and for longer? How much will it cost to get the HVAC replaced? To his credit, the HVAC tech did his best to explain that he was just telling me to prepare. He also left me the card of the HVAC contractor at their office. I put the card on the fridge and started my routine of not making a decision. This went on for more than a month when I had to call the HVAC people again to come out for a repair. This time the HVAC guy told me that time was short and I needed to make the call to the HVAC contractor. So I did. And, it was far easier and way less painful that I thought it could ever be. The HVAC contractor helped me find a replacement model that fit the budget and our heating & cooling needs in a matter of days. Thanks to him, the decisions were actually quite easy to make for once.
