My air conditioning broke down last week.
If it had gone down in the middle of the day or early morning, I would’ve called the HVAC company immediately. Instead, the air conditioning unit broke down an hour before bedtime. I refused to call the HVAC company because they would have charged me after hour charges. I would have paid almost double the price for AC repairs.My wife wasn’t happy with my decision to not call the HVAC company, but I told her that swimming before bed could help cool her off. We headed outside to the pool and jumped in. After half an hour, I felt cooler and more comfortable than I did before getting into the pool. When inside, I stripped the bathing suits and headed to bed. About half an hour later, I felt my wife’s elbow in my ribs. She told me she could not sleep without air conditioning, and she would not allow me to sleep until we had air conditioning. Once again, I told her I would not call the HVAC company when they were going to charge me so much money. She said that since it was a money issue; she was going to make it cost me more even if I didn’t call the HVAC company. She was going to the hotel that night. I called the HVAC company. Two hours later, the HVAC tech was at the house repairing the air conditioning unit. Had I realized that even though it was after hours I was still going to not have to pay because we had a maintenance and repair agreement, I would’ve got a full seven hours of sleep instead of.
