The worst time of the year to have concerns with the A/C is while in the summer time months, I was having some trouble with the A/C last summer, and I needed to wait until payday to call someone to look at the issue.
I knew it was going to cost at least $129 to get someone out to the home to investigate the system! Depending on the repair, it would have cost even more money.
When the issues began on Sunday, I felt confident waiting until Tuesday to have the job completed. On Monday, the sun started shining at 5 am. It was almost a hundred degrees outside before noon. I did not think I was going to get through the whole day without cool air. On Monday, I contacted the A/C repair and I made an appointment. They had an available appointment on the same day that I called, although I told the men that I needed to wait until payday. I was the first person on the schedule that day. The repair worker delivered some bad news that I was hoping not to hear, he believed that the air compressor was the issue and recommended replacement of the entire HVAC system. I knew I didn’t have thousands of dollars for that kind of work. I broke down in the living room, in front of the repair worker. I started sobbing when I heard the news. The repair tech told me not to worry, because they have lending companies plus financial institutions that work with purchasers plus most people get approved if they own their home.
