My wife is getting a little overzealous about keeping us on budget this year.
Her new thing is that she wants us to save money on our heating and cooling bills.
I don’t mind trying to do that. I mean, it’s going to be less comfortable in our house this summer if we try and keep the thermostat set at a higher temperature than normal, but hopefully my body will adjust and I’ll be able to deal with it. So it’s not really that part of her plan that is bothering me that much. No, the thing that I’m more concerned about is the fact that my wife is trying to get me to stop buying the high quality HEPA air filters that I like to get for our HVAC system. I have been buying these high quality HEPA air filters ever since we moved into this house almost twenty years ago and they are the best. I have done lots of research into different types of air filters, and by far, the HEPA ones that I purchase are the best. I credit them with the fact that we have excellent indoor air quality in our house nearly all the time. My wife says that these air filters are too expensive, no matter how great they are. She says that we could get air filters for a fraction of the cost and they would probably be just as good. Her logic is that we end up throwing the air filters away eventually anyway. I don’t know what to tell her, but I’m not happy with the way this new plan is heading!
