My wife always tells me that it is way easier to maintain something than to fix it. It was a phrase that didn’t make much sense to me at first, but now that we have been married for a while, I finally understand her meaning. I have destroyed cars because I forgot to switch the oil at the right time. I have let my house and room become trashed because I didn’t pick up after myself each day. My failure has caused a heap of concerns for me over the years, but I was unable to change the ways that I had fallen into. Well, until recently, when my furnace started to malfunction. It was a sick feeling in my gut when I got up that morning while shivering I remember running to look at the temperature control plus seeing that it was close to thirty degrees inside my house! I abhor myself for not remembering to schedule a check-up from the HVAC contractor over the past multiple years, plus I figured the furnace was due for a service too! I notified the local Heating plus Air Conditioning contract plus explained the occurrence. When the contractor reached my house, they looked over the furnace plus found that the furnace had simply gone too long without any maintenance, plus much of the machinery inside the furnace uit had rusted plus fallen apart. They told me the price to repair it would be triple the cost of what I would have paid to prevent the problem in the first place. Begrudgingly, I agreed to the price since they provided a financing system to pay for the repairs to the furnace. I remember committing that day that I would quit my neglectful ways plus become responsible about these concerns! Several weeks have passed since then though, plus now that the furnace is ready, I’m not so sure if I will keep my commitment. I guess I will never learn.
