I am a thrifty individual. I know how far a dollar goes, and I do all that I can to save as many of them as possible. My wife Trisha Isn’t always onboard with this, but she gets it. Life is much tougher when you spend all your money, and you go without. I certainly learned this lesson early on in life, and I have always been intent on saving up money. A great benefit of this practice is also having the money to spoil yourself now and then. My wife Trisha and I happen to really value our HVAC unit. The money we save on other things, makes it possible for us to keep our thermostat set at exactly the temperature we want. In the summer, we are able to keep pleasantly cool while the A/C keeps the house feeling fresh and crisp. We prefer to be very cool at night so we fall asleep with the air conditioner running. In the winter season, we greatly value the furnace. It’s crucial that we be nice and warm, so we like to have our heating system running all the time, even as we fall asleep. We save money where we can, but when it comes to our heating and cooling, it is one luxury we totally indulge in. However, we still do our best to spend money to keep the HVAC unit at peak performance. We got ourselves a programmable thermostat that makes it possible for the system to not wear down from constant use when we are not home or after we fall asleep.
