Well, today definitely did not go as I had planned.
You see, a week ago, I started having issues with my heating and air conditioning system again.
This wasn’t an uncommon occurrence for me, especially now that it was summer. The HVAC device will sometimes have difficulty working, and I will call a HVAC technician out to repair the problem, and then things would go back to normal until next time. I wasn’t surprised the air conditioning unit was having difficulty, it was in the middle of summer time, and during extreme weather, the heating and A/C unit usually struggled more. So I made an appointment with the local A/C company and waited. When the air conditioning technician arrived, I figured it was going to be the same old routine as usual. But no, this time the A/C worker wanted to talk to me, which was not a good sign. Then he dropped the news on me like a bomb. The cooling machine was gone, and it wasn’t coming back. He started talking about HVAC installation quotes, but I couldn’t hear him properly over my internal panic. A/C installation is incredibly expensive! I’m not even sure if I could afford something like that, but there is no way I can live without A/C and heating, the temperatures are too extreme here. It would be dangerous to not have air conditioning or heating! I might have to take out a loan to get the heating and air conditioning installed, I don’t see any other way.
