The president’s tariff plan has a real result. Anything that uses steel or aluminum will see a hike in prices. I am afraid to take a chance on our old Heating, Ventilation & A/C system. I have had this heating plus cooling machine for nearly sixteen years. I’m afraid that if I wait to substitute it the cost will be prohibitive. The president’s tariff is thirty five percent on steel plus ten percent on aluminum. The effect on the Heating, Ventilation and A/C industry had been quick. I began searching the internet for possibilities to our old Heating, Ventilation & A/C unit. I found out immediately that I can expect a minimum of ten to twelve percent increase on Heating, Ventilation & A/C equipment. That may not sound that alarming to most. When you move that increase over thousands of dollar in equipment, it gets alarming fairly quick. Perhaps these tariffs are intended to be helpful. That being said, I can’t imagine that these price hikes will encourage people substitute their Heating, Ventilation & A/C systems down the road. I wonder what that will end up paying in Heating, Ventilation & A/C jobs plus cost cuts in the Heating, Ventilation & A/C industry. I am faced with a strenuous choice. Either get a modern Heating, Ventilation & A/C plan installed now or pray that the tariff is simply a negotiating tool plus repealed soon. I don’t guess I can take the chance. Tomorrow I am calling our Heating, Ventilation & A/C company to get them out here to measure for a up to date Heating, Ventilation & A/C system. I simply don’t want to have to pay so much extra if our heating plus cooling plan were to break this Summer.
