He really hates it when we have to call a central heating and cooling specialist to inspect to be a HVAC system because he sees dollars flying out the door.
My husband will do anything to save dollars. He is an extremely thrifty person and sometimes it really annoys me. I’m glad that we have a firm budget in our household and that he is very good with cash… But he often makes decisions that are inconvenient and uncomfortable for me. One of our biggest continual fights is setting the thermostat for the central heating and cooling system. Because he is so thrifty, he never wants to run the air conditioner or forced air furnace in the house. I know that energy bills can be very substantial, but I also have indoor air temperature preferences that greatly affect how much work I can do in a day. If I’m freezing cold or burning hot, I’m not going to be an effective writer at my job. He also worries a lot about the wear and tear that we’re accumulating on our central heating and cooling system. Because we personally bought this forced air furnace and large AC unit 5 years ago, he feels especially protective of the air handling devices. He really hates it when we have to call a central heating and cooling specialist to inspect to be a HVAC system because he sees dollars flying out the door. That’s why, he continually uses bargain HVAC dealerships that I absolutely abhor. I know that they offer great deals on routine diagnostic and repair services, but that’s because their certified Heating and Cooling technicians are rather gruff. I always get stuck managing the HVAC appointment and I truly don’t enjoy being around these rough and tumble HVAC specialists. If he wants to keep saving on our HVAC repair costs, I wish that my husband would be present when our ex-felon air quality control specialist is in my house.
