We are getting a new air conditioner put in next week and we are pretty gleeful about it. This is great news because we have a seasoned heating as well as A/C system and it hasn’t worked well for a long time. I don’t know how much money we’ve sunk into the thing over the past many years but it really was enough to pay for a new system. We can’t put any more bandaids on it because it just isn’t worth it, so this week we are going to have the local business come and put in a whole new central heat and air unit. They told us it is the most efficient one on the market and will lower our power bills by about 50%. I can’t wait to see my next power bill once it is installed because my power bills have been way too high for a long time and it is painful to pay them each week. The air conditioner compressor is an inverter type, which I absolutely guess nothing about, it is supposed to use a lot less energy than the one we have in there now. I think our component is about 17 years old, which is seasoned for heating and A/C systems, and its efficiency has been getting lower each year. I’m sure it is not only old, it is really absolutely dirty too, which also lowers the efficiency of the cooling and heating processes. We are going to finance the new heating and A/C component so that we don’t take such a hit trying to pay for it all at once.
