I still can’t believe that I won the HVAC company raffle a few months ago.
I never win anything! This was honestly the first time that this kind of thing has ever happened to me at all.
The way that it came about was really weird for me, too. I ended up going into the HVAC office one day when I was off of work. I was simply out shopping around for a new smart thermostat unit that day and while I was in the HVAC showroom, I saw that they were holding a raffle. This HVAC raffle is apparently something that they do every single year and every year they give away a really good prize. Last year, they gave away a whole home air purification system and a lady from the next town over won it. This year, the grand prize was a brand new high efficiency HVAC system, which was exactly what I needed for my house. My old HVAC system was on its last legs, so to speak. I knew that I was eventually going to need to buy a new HVAC system, but I wasn’t quite ready to do that then. I also didn’t have enough money saved up for that kind of thing, either. Whenever I went into the HVAC showroom that day, I was only planning to find a new thermostat for the house, but I ended up buying a couple of raffle tickets for their yearly HVAC raffle. To everyone’s surprise, including my own, I won the new high efficiency HVAC unit! With that, plus the new smart thermostat that I purchased, my home’s heating, cooling and ventilation system was all updated.
