I had been trying to hold onto my AC plan for as long as possible.
The AC plan was at least 13 years old, which was technically within the estimated lifespan and it was still running.
It was cooling my condo and that’s all I entirely needed it to do. I had it worked on every year by a trusted Heating and A/C corporation and despite them telling myself and others that I needed to consider a current AC system, I chose to ignore them. I was determined to use my AC plan until it’s final breath. However, something made myself and others consider buying a current AC plan before it died and that was my energy bills. Every week, I watched my energy bills raise higher and higher, to the point that I was uncomfortable paying them. The weekly report broke down each style of use and the highest consumption was my Heating and A/C system. I tried raising the temperature of my thermostat so my AC plan wouldn’t have to work as hard and I tried sealing all the doors and windows, but nothing made my utility bill go down. It didn’t make financial sense to pay such a high utility bill, when I could pay for a current AC system, so that’s what I had to do. I obtained a current AC plan and I was amazed by how efficiently it ran. As soon as I upgraded it, my weekly energy bill dropped immediately and I knew that I had made the right decision. If anything, I was regretting not replacing my AC plan sooner.
