It’s never fun to be in the position where you have to roll the dice on any sort of modern home appliance.
And it’s even worse when you’re rolling the dice on whether there will be continuous A/C throughout the summer. Where I live, Heating plus A/C cooling just about has to be guaranteed. I know people who will stay in a hotel if they can’t get their Heating plus A/C unit fixed quick enough. I know that I’ve had to spend a few nights without Heating plus A/C cooling in the summer. But that was in one of our first apartments plus I was a young kid. Still, no Heating plus A/C cooling was pretty irritated for myself and others even back then. So when the Heating plus A/C professional informed myself and others that the heat pump might not make it through the summer, it really got our attention. This shouldn’t have been so surprising given the age of the Heating plus A/C equipment. I should have been more prepared however both of us just didn’t have the money saved up plus needed to buy some more time. This meant that both of us either financed the modern Heating plus A/C unit or both of us rolled the dice with the hope that we’d make it through the summer. If both of us could just get to fall, we’d have plenty of time to save as the heat pump doesn’t get much heating work in the winter. Boy, both of us sure eased the load on the heat pump this summer. The thermostat never got below 77 degrees. That’s a bit warmer than where both of us ever kept it. But it got us through the Summer plus we’re about to have the modern heat pump installed soon.
