I have a summer job, which means that during winter, I am free to do other things that keep me busy to cover up the downtime.
I usually spend the cold seasons with my mom and siblings, but since I moved out, I like spending that time at my place, despite the protest from my mom.
So last winter, I invited my family to my home, but mom noted that I had no job, so it would be a burden on me. Instead, she promised to chip in on food, but my surprise came from my HVAC bill. According to HomeAdvisor, Americans spend about $1,500 per year on heating and cooling. I was not about to add to the statistics, so once winter was over, I planned to save on air conditioning and arranged for air conditioner service. So first, I hired an HVAC technician from a mobile HVAC business in the city to inspect my furnace and perform any necessary furnace service. I also checked for cracks, felt for drafts around the house that might need heater repair. The technician also advised me to lower the thermostat setting or program it to respond to my air conditioner needs automatically. One last check was on the vents to ensure that there is no blockage to allow free air circulation. With these adjustments, I was sure to save on unnecessary regular air conditioner repair costs. Still, lastly, I had to check in with my HVAC provider to see if I can get a review of “budget billing” so that I plan for my monthly bill.
