We all try to make our dollars go farther and last longer. Big expenditures – like a new HVAC system or a major HVAC repair – can break the budget… and who has time for that anyway? Here are some true stories from customer experiences we can all learn from.
Case #1: A married couple, Dan & Cheryl, decided to sell their house their 18-year-old house. The buyers were apprehensive about the original HVAC unit, and figured it would never pass inspection… in fact, they were hoping to use the aged HVAC unit as a bargaining chip to force concessions from the owners. To the buyer’s and inspector’s surprise, this 18-year-old HVAC passed inspection with a totally clean bill of health! Here’s what Dan & Cheryl did, and you can, too!
Case #2: Now, let’s look at the experiences of another homeowner named Sherrie. She rented out her home for a year prior to selling it. At that time the renters moved in, the HVAC unit was just 8-years-old. A year later, Sherrie was in for surprise! The renters had not changed the HVAC filters at all during the entire years’ time, and it had burned up the HVAC unit to where it would no longer come on. They also had not kept up the maintenance on this heavily wooded lot, and the HVAC unit was covered in debris. Sherrie had to pay nearly $8,000 for a new HVAC unit before it could pass inspection, thus taking a big chunk out of her sales’ profits. Ouch! That is a hard way to learn that the most important thing anyone can do to prolong the life of their HVAC unit is to change the air filters!
