Got a bit too cute with HVAC upgrade

The HVAC technician was pretty straightforward and I always appreciate that in just about anyone.

I’m the sort of person who just likes to understand the facts. I’m not so worried about implications or emotions when it comes to just assessing the facts before me. All that other stuff can come later after necessary decisions have been made. The HVAC professional told me that the HVAC equipment in my home was about to die. It had gone for some 25 years so I can’t say I was shocked. He suggested that I contact the HVAC company to speak with the HVAC contractor about the upgrade to our residential HVAC. I did just that but I also had a bit of an ulterior motive as well. Happily, I listened to the HVAC professionals at the HVAC company as they laid out my choices and options for new residential HVAC equipment. But inside, I was just taking notes because I wasn’t about to pay retail for the new heating and cooling equipment. I was just using the information from the HVAC professionals so I could then go find what I wanted at a much lower price. And that’s just what I did. Scouring the internet for months led me to a crazy great price on the residential HVAC that would replace the old HVAC unit. Plus, I was going to save something like 35 percent over what the HVAC company price. I bought the heating and cooling equipment and had it shipped to my house. Then, I called to have the HVAC contractor get the installation process underway. He did that with an initial inspection. And that’s when he informed me that the HVAC unit I bought for such a great deal wasn’t big enough for the air volume in my home. Ouch.
