My husband thinks that he can repair anything that is wrong in the house, then he often gives me a hard time when I want to call a professional instead of waiting for him to repair the problem, but I went without a garbage disposal for 2 weeks, because he wanted to repair the machine.
He got the problem worked out, but I was totally messed up for 2 weeks without my garbage disposal in the kitchen.
My husband was away at a company meeting when a problem with the air conditioner came up. I was afraid that he would ask me to wait if I told him about the problem. I decided it was better to call a repair professional first. I contacted the repair professional about the A/C and I made an appointment, then the next time I talked to my hubby on the cellphone, I told him that I made an appointment with the A/C repair because the unit was making a weird noise. The unit wasn’t making a weird noise, but I knew that would make my partner feel like it was more of an emergency than if the temperatures were simply warmer in the house. The repair worker found the concern and fixed the issue in less than 2 hours. It turned out to be a problem with low freon. That isn’t an issue that my partner would have been able to repair anyways. You have to have a special license to add refrigerant to the system! we would have needed to contact a repair worker and HVAC professional.
