I was lucky enough to have inherited some money last year, and a little piece of property. It’s difficult to put into words what it’s feels like to be in working-class, constantly putting in over forty hours a week, only to be handed a sizable check and swiftly doesn’t have to labor anymore. For a while, I kept working, just for something to do. Now I have a house, and some land, and since I don’t have to work I realize that I never want to ever again! This current home has some current challenges to contend with, such as the upscale but seasoned central heating and cooling system. In the basement, there is an absolute monster of a gas furnace, connected to the rest of the home with a maze of air ducts and fans. The heating barely works at all, but the plan is so complicated I can’t begin to tell where the problem is. The A/C works a little better, but the central component is making a lot of noise that it shouldn’t be making. I called out an HVAC contractor to inspect my entire plan and give me some cost estimates for a tune-up, an upgrade, or a complete replacement. Money may not be a big issue for me anymore, but I won’t just throw my money away on a shady HVAC plan deal. The tech told me what I expected, that the entire gas furnace and A/C needed to be replaced, and that the air ducts would likely need to be removed.
