I’m not a gambler or giant risk taker by nature. In fact, I don’t like taking risks at all if I can avoid it. And that’s not consistently been exactly beneficial when residing this life. There is a particular amount of risk to be taken in order to get where you want to go. I realized a while back that simply doing my task and coming house to the air conditioning was not going to get me where I wanted to go. That would take some calculated risks and extra effort. Turns out, I was right and taking a few measured risks became easier for me to do. But rolling the dice on heating and cooling comfort was still a bit out of my comfort zone. Yet, that’s exactly what I did. The HVAC specialist warned me that our HVAC machine was about done. This prompted me to get going on saving for the replacement heating and cooling equipment. But after about 9 weeks, I was still a bit short on what was needed for the modern HVAC unit. And I wasn’t eager to do any sort of financing with the HVAC company although that was an option. So I rolled the dice this past Springtime that our HVAC machine would make it through one more strenuous summer. The summer time heat is a giant deal here and it puts quite a load on the HVAC unit. But I made sure that every one of us kept the control machine no more than 15 degrees cooler than the outside temps. And had the cooling system tune-up one last time prior to going for it. Believe it or not, that gamble absolutely paid off.
