I couldn’t buy a new AC unit at that point either, because the prices would be more expensive
Last summer, my HVAC technician told me that I’d need a new air conditioning unit before the next summer. My AC unit was not only over 15 years old, but it looked rough and performed poorly. The outside condenser unit was rusting, and the equipment was rattling constantly. I couldn’t afford to have the air conditioning unit replaced, so I did whatever I could to prolong it’s death. I replaced the air filters frequently to eliminate the stress of overworking. I also turned off my AC every time I left the house. To be honest, I didn’t trust that it wouldn’t go up in flames while I was away. Throughout the rest of last year, I kept pushing off having the AC unit replaced, because I didn’t want to pay that much money. “Just one more month,” became my motto. I wasn’t using the AC during the fall and winter anyway, so cool air wasn’t a pressing issue. However, when late spring rolled around and I still didn’t have a new AC unit, I knew I’d messed up. I couldn’t buy a new AC unit at that point either, because the prices would be more expensive. I had no choice but to use my old AC unit for one more summer. I wasn’t sure that my AC unit would survive, but thankfully the cool air kept flowing and I didn’t have any serious issues. Now that summer has ended, I’m ready to buy my new AC unit, and I’m not procrastinating one minute!
