Choose your battles – wasted money on HVAC appointments

Instead, my husband repeatedly called the local HVAC repair shop and arranged unnecessary diagnostic appointments

Sometimes I look at my husband and just shake my head. It’s the best that I can muster when he is being absolutely ridiculous. Don’t get me wrong, I really love the man… But he can be such a pain in the butt. Sometimes he gets very riled up about things and there’s no way for me to calm him down again. This is when we wind up getting into personal and financial conflicts that threaten our marriage. However, I am well aware of the necessity to let things go. You can’t fight every battle in your marriage or it isn’t going to last. This is why I have not chosen to start a knockout drag-out war regarding our recent heating, cooling, and air quality control issues. You see, for the past several years we have had a slowly degrading HVAC system. The gas furnace and large air conditioning unit in the backyard have been aging dramatically. I’ve known that it was going to be important to keep up with our routine heating, cooling, and air quality control appointment. However, my husband did not want to spend on the HVAC services at that time. Then, a few months ago he started realizing that the indoor air temperature control was, in fact, suffering. We were having a lot of hot and cold patches throughout the house and it was getting very uncomfortable. At this point, it was clearly too late to worry about the existing heating, cooling, and ventilation system. We really needed to start saving up money to replace the entire air conditioning and heating set up. Instead, my husband repeatedly called the local HVAC repair shop and arranged unnecessary diagnostic appointments. Now, we’ve wasted a lot of money… And we need a lot more to make these upgrades.
