There are times when I wish I wasn’t as cheap as I am.
It doesn’t help any that my wife is just as cheap as I am.
We knew we needed a new heating and air conditioning system. We didn’t really do a lot of thinking when we bought our current unit. We knew only that we didn’t want to spend a lot of money for it. We wanted to save enough money for a good HVAC system. We also wanted to have money in the bank. We always thought about what we do in the case of an emergency. We wanted to have enough money to be able to get whatever we wanted and needed. For some reason, we didn’t think that purchasing a new HVAC system should be a priority at that time. It lasted us less than ten years, and we now need a new HVAC system. I swore that I wasn’t going to make the same mistake twice. This time we were going to think more along the line of getting what we needed and having an HVAC system that would last us for more than ten years. The efficiency of our current system was less than what we wanted, but to be honest, we couldn’t expect much more from something so cheap. We decided to forego the budget and find something that would run well and cost less to run. We wanted excellent heating and air conditioning with minimal costs to run instead of the other way around. It was the only way we were going to save money.
