I hate to admit it but there is some truth to “time is money”.
Honestly, this has been one of my least favorite axioms of all time.
For one, money is money and time is time. Plus, most people that are constantly into time and money are also pushing to force their own deadlines. For me, I tend to like to take my time. No need to get all sweaty in the air conditioning of the office over an extra hour. But as much as it pains me, I now fully understand the time is money thing. This is because I have started acquiring small homes, renovating them and then renting to people. The longer the renovations take, the longer I’m not getting any revenue on the house. So when I got a call from the HVAC contractor working on my latest place, I left work and got myself over there. Apparently, I missed the fact that the ductwork on this place was also in need of being replaced. However, this was something that should have been addressed prior to the stage we were in on the renovations. Not only would it cost me more money but far more time to rip out and replace the ductwork. Instead, we pivoted to using a ductless multi split system for heating and cooling the house. Not only did this cut a chunk of money off the HVAC installation, it would save me a ton of very valuable time in the process. The great thing is the fact that the ductless heat pumps are really awesome and do such a great job providing quality heating and air.
