My air conditioner has been making all kinds of strange noises lately, so I think it’s time to call an HVAC serviceman. I suspect that it’s due to die completely on me at some point very soon. I dislike having to do this because I know that the repair costs are going to be absolutely bonkers. I don’t have a service contract with our heating and AC contractor, so there will most likely be an additional fee for the visit itself. I dislike having to deal with appliances and repairs around my house, although I just don’t know enough about air conditioners to fix it by myself. I’m consistently at the mercy of an expert anytime that I need someone to come and fix an issue like this. I am seriously considering outright replacing my air conditioner because of its age. I’ve had it for such a long time that I guess it would be nice to upgrade it so that I don’t waste a ton of money on repair costs for however long it lasts. Instead, a more current air conditioning system would ensure that I would be set and ready to go for a long time with the addition of a seasonal service plan. I’ll happily change the air filters if it keeps me from having to mess with my AC over and over. I adore my house, however I’ll admit that this is one of the downfalls to being a homeowner. If I was in an apartment complex they’d have to pay for air conditioner maintenance.
