I didn’t want to hear it about an HVAC system upgrade

When the HVAC professional kept saying that my HVAC system was old, I didn’t pay him any mind at first.

  • I thought he was discriminating against my HVAC system like it wasn’t good enough or something.

Eventually he explained that it wasn’t that my HVAC system was lousy, it was that it wasn’t as energy efficient as the newer models and that’s just the way it goes. Well, I told this HVAC professional my old philosophy, ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ He agreed in most cases that’s the way to go, but you have to be smart when it comes to expensive HVAC equipment. He said that surely somebody would want to buy my old HVAC as it would be of good use to somebody, maybe only for parts but those old parts definitely have value. He said if I sold the HVAC, I could upgrade to a new one and enjoy the energy savings. I had to admit, the HVAC professional was making a lot of sense and I no longer felt offended about him telling me to go for an upgrade. It wasn’t like I had some sentimental attachment to my HVAC system, I just thought I should keep using it until it was finished. Even with cars, we sell them and upgrade to something new or trade in at the dealership, so why not do that with HVAC equipment? So I did as the guy said, found a buyer for my old system which was only 10 years old mind you. I got a pretty good deal for it and my new HVAC system truly is energy efficient.
