I was pretty close to buying a new HVAC system from a local HVAC company.
I thought the HVAC was impressive, even though it was costly.
Well, when I learned that they didn’t accept my Discover card as payment, I was agitated. It was the only credit card I had that had a high enough limit to cover the cost of the new HVAC system. They said that I could make payments, but I just wanted to pay for everything up front so I didn’t have to worry about all the interest payments. They also said I could pay in cash, but I wasn’t trying to carry that much cash on me. I ended up talking to my brother about the situation. He told me there was another HVAC company on the other side of town that took Discover cards, but I hesitated going there. Then he said that I could just choose to install my own HVAC system. He asked me if I was going for a ductless mini split and I actually was. It was a nice system with 5 zones and built in air purification. Well, my brother spoke of the DIY ductless mini splits and said he thought they didn’t have built in air purification, but they could be installed without professional assistance. He also said that he knew for a fact that they accepted Discover cards. Well, that brightened up my day, but I wasn’t sure if I could handle such an installation. He told me not to worry and that he would be there to help, plus he had experience from installing one of these at a friend’s house.
