I can for sure be all about saving money anywhere I can.
This comes pretty naturally to me.
Growing up with a dad who considered the value of every dime he spent has the most to do with my eye for saving. My dad would go as far as locking up the HVAC thermostat. He knew what he was willing to spend for HVAC comfort and that wasn’t going to be undermined by his wife or children. While I am not quite that extreme, I do get my fair share of ridicule from my family on my penchant for tight spending. They get a good kick out of the fact that we are the only family in the neighborhood that does their own lawn. I still get out there every week to cut and trim the grass. There is just no way that I would spend the money it takes for a commercial landscaper to do it. That isn’t the only DIY endeavors I get into. I still change the oil in all of our vehicles and I even cut my own hair. The miser jokes would normally go right here. However, I don’t take any chances on HVAC repair. That is something that I am more than happy to pay the professionals to do. When you consider the education an HVAC technician has to get just to do the job, it clearly indicates that HVAC repair is a job for the professionals. Besides, I have seen the results when friends of mine have attempted to do their own HVAC repair. It always ends up with an HVAC repair bill that is far larger than it would have been.
