I remember when both of us had our new HVAC equipment installed.
It’s been a dozen years ago or more.
But I can remember it all really clearly. That’s because both of us had just purchased this home and it was our first home. My fiance and I had been married about 5 years at that point. We knew that a family was in the plans so both of us bought a home that would accommodate that plan. The seller of the home just outright refused to replace the clearly old HVAC component that was here. So both of us ended up negotiating down the price rather significantly over that heating and cooling equipment. In turn, this allowed us to get really the latest in residential HVAC at the time. We had the money so both of us decided to get the best quality heating and air that both of us could get. And I remember the HVAC supplier telling us that both of us needed to be sure to register the HVAC equipment with the factory first. And then, he told us that both of us needed to make sure that the new HVAC equipment got consistent, seasonal HVAC maintenance every year. This would greatly increase the efficiency, operation and longevity of the HVAC unit. He told us not to wait because the HVAC component was new but to get going with HVAC maintenance that really year. And both of us followed his advice. We’ve gotten heating maintenance in the fall and an A/C tune-up each Spring. I figure that our HVAC equipment will last for a really, really long time.
