For a little while, I felt like we were being strung along by our HVAC professional.
He was always convincing us to upgrade to something better.
The last HVAC system we had was only 10 years old and he convinced us to go for a ductless HVAC system. I mean, the ductless isn’t bad at all, we have been saving a lot of money in energy bills, but honestly we could have let the last HVAC system run until it was no longer repairable. I thought we could have gotten another 5 years at least. But the HVAC professional made the newer HVAC system sound so amazing. He was talking about the HVAC zone control and the built-in air purification. Those things are pretty nice I have to admit, but it wasn’t necessary to go for this type of HVAC system so soon. Then after that, the guy managed to talk us into getting a few portable UV air purifiers for around the house. The UV light kills the harmful pathogens in the home and the UV air purifiers we have use HEPA filters. These UV air purifiers were quite expensive and I almost feel like the HVAC professional was laughing on his way to the bank since we already had air purification in our home. I don’t really know, I do think these are good HVAC components to have, but we don’t have to spend all our money so quickly on different HVAC components. I told my wife that next time he comes over for HVAC maintenance, we can’t let him sell us anything.
