I don’t love to pay on things that I don’t want.
For example, I don’t like spending money on an eye exam because I don’t like eye exams.
Unfortunately, I wear contacts though, which requires my eyes to be examined every two years. I also didn’t like spending money on new ductwork because I can’t see the ductwork and it felt like a waste. I knew our HVAC system was in good shape, but my HVAC dealer told me that our ductwork was not. In fact, it was in such bad shape that they could not do anything other than suggest that I have it updated. When I questioned the severity of the situation, the HVAC dealer assured me that I was wasting money every hour the HVAC system powered on because the HVAC treated air wasn’t making it into our house, there were so many holes in the ductwork that had gone unobserved for so long that it was irreparable. The ductwork was ancient and as far as I know, nobody had ever had the ductwork cleaned by a professional. Having ductwork clean is essential because it removes the dust and dirt that’s building up gradually. If the debris becomes too thick, it creates holes in the ductwork where the HVAC treated air can escape. When the air escapes, it’s like throwing money down the drain. In minor cases, an HVAC professional can repair the holes. Unfortunately, that was not the case for me. I’d have to spend thousands of dollars on brand new ductwork that I’d never see.
