This past winter I had a major HVAC repair expense that I am going to have to be paying off for who knows how long.
The way my heating is set up is through an electric heat pump.
Electric heat pumps are not simple to repair when things go wrong with them. And that is exactly what happened to me. My electric heat pump had a major break down! I had to call my local heating and air conditioning specialist out for one of those emergency HVAC repair appointments. The weather was below 0 outside, so I had no choice but to go for that emergency heating and air conditioning repair appointment. If I had not chose to go with the HVAC emergency repair appointment, there is a good chance my family and I would have froze to death. For a regular non-emergency HVAC appointment, the wait for a heating and air conditioning specialist was a whole week! We could not deal with that at all! So, when the heating and air conditioning workman got to looking at the heat pump, he found that nearly the entire electric heat pump needed to be replaced! I really could not afford to do this, but what other choice did I have? I gave the heating and air conditioning workman the permission to replace the entire electric heat pump with a new one. In that freezing cold it took him a little bit to get it done. I felt bad for the HVAC workman out there in that freezing cold! But he got it fixed like a trooper, and now i’m in debt.
