I tend to be that guy who regularly plays by the rules.
Playing by the rules seems to be the less popular opinion nowadays.
It’s like you’re considered an idiot if you follow common sense rules in order to do the right thing. So, it shouldn’t be all surprising that I am having the professional HVAC professionals do the repairs necessary on my HVAC system. However, I was tempted to do otherwise. These unpredictable economic times have resulted in my monthly household budget being cut down. My wife’s hours were cut where she works due to the virus. I am now working from home. Fortunately for me, I am still making a good salary but bonuses are a thing of the past. Frankly, I wonder if the company will use this as a precedent to get rid of the bonus structure altogether. I hate the thought of that but, I’d rather be ready for it than unprepared. This means that it is a bit warmer inside our house this summer. I’m doing the best I can to cut the HVAC costs in order to save a bit of money on the utilities. This is also the reason why I considered a handyman for the HVAC repairs. As I understood it, one vital part would be coming out with the new part going back in. Didn’t sound all that hard. Yet, I knew that the HVAC professionals I have trusted for ages would guarantee their job in addition to knowing exactly what they are doing. I couldn’t say the same thing about the handyman. While cutting the rules to save a bit of money was enticing, I knew that sticking with what is right is the best answer by far.
