I was pretty close to buying a new HVAC unit from a local heating and air conditioning supplier! I thought the heating and a/c was impressive, even though it was expensive.
When I learned that they didn’t accept my Discover card as payment, I was angry. It was the only 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, although 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, although I wasn’t trying to carry that much money on me. I ended up talking to my brother about the situation, he told me there was another heating and a/c supplier on the other side of town that took Discover cards, although I hesitated going there. Then he said that I could just choose to install my own heating and a/c system. He asked me if I was going for a ductless mini split and I entirely was. It was a nice system with 5 zones and built in air purification. Well, my sibling 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, although 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, and he had experience from installing one of these at a friend’s house.
