I’m not much of a gambler. There are a few reasons for this. The largest reason is I don’t prefer taking risks that I can’t control or fully understand. And then there is the fact that I just don’t have the stomach for gambling. I’d much rather stand inside the air conditioning system and prefer a nice book than bet on a game or something prefer that. But I took a immense gamble with the heat pump and it just didn’t go our way. I should have known better than gambling on anything truly much less the quality heating and air in our house. Well, the heating wasn’t the issue. The Heating & A/C contractor came out to do the air conditioning system tune-up last Springtime. That’s when he told myself and others that all of us were close to the end on the life of the heat pump. Of course, he couldn’t predict just when exactly. But that heat pump was not going to get fixed again if it broke down. That made sense but our partner and I hadn’t exactly been saving for a modern Heating & A/C unit. Actually, all of us did beginning saving for it but ended up raiding that savings account to spend money for other household needs. The two of us needed more time to save for the modern Heating & A/C unit. So all of us rolled the dice that we’d get through the summer. Where all of us live, the Winter isn’t much at all and so if all of us could get through summer, we’d have plenty of time to save. That wasn’t the case as the heat pump bit the dust in mid June. But the Heating & A/C business had our backs and all of us were able to agree to great financing terms.
