I never quite understood the meaning of the saying; when it rains, it pours until many years ago. I would put it mildly as well as say that I found myself in a financial cucumber, but in reality, it was a giant-sized tomato, but little did I suppose it was just the beginning of my misfortune. Three months on the unemployment line had not deterred my hopes of getting another source of income before my savings ran out. A cooling expert from the local Heating as well as A/C company called myself and others to confirm my availability for the air conditioner tune-up. I was only using the money for the bare minimum, so I told them I was away as well as would call them upon my return; My indoor air pollen levels was going to suffer, but I had little choice. I would have to apply the little a/c care knowledge I had gotten from the last cooling specialist who had come to my home. I had l received how to check for leaks in the Heating as well as A/C duct, as well as duct sealing was straight-forward enough for myself and others to perform independently. I had also made plans with the new business to install a zone control system, but that too would have to wait until I found a new job. This desperate situation went on for a whole year, as well as by then, I was surviving on noodles. At some point, I would switch off the mini-split air conditioner to save energy. The heat pump technology is energy efficient, but I did everything to reduce my bills. The temperature control system had also started to supply myself and others grief, as well as I had a feeling that the thermostat had had enough of my neglect, but with how things were going, I knew that if I did not do something soon, I would have to buy a new air conditioner unit.
