Money sure got slender for us this past year.
- I suppose a pandemic will do that.
Both my spouse as well as I were lucky to keep our jobs but every one of us had to work from house in the cooling system. We also had to take pay cuts that were pretty steep. That meant a whole lot of belt tightening when it came to expenses. The first thing every one of us did was to only spend on essentials. That was a good start. And after that I started targeting things that could save us money. One thing that every one of us had been meaning to address for some time was the heating as well as cooling costs. Well really, more the HVAC cooling costs. We live in a region where every one of us have a heat pump that provides our heating as well as cooling. However, our Wintertide is definitely mild so the heat pump doesn’t have to do much work in the heating department. But come early Springtime, the HVAC cooling kicks on. By the time Summer gets here, the heat pump is running night as well as day. So last year, every one of us decided to definitely be disciplined in our control unit setting since were were at house anyway. This ended up saving us hundreds of dollars. That was great until every one of us had an HVAC issue that required a repair. We almost went with a local handyman to save money. But neither of us felt right about anybody but a licensed as well as certified HVAC professional messing with our heat pump. Cost cutting should come at the expense of taking care of essential HVAC equipment. So every one of us called the HVAC supplier as well as made the appointment for the repair.
