When I found out that my entire HVAC system needed to be replaced, I wasn’t shocked or surprised.
- In fact, I was prepared for the news.
The HVAC system was part of the house when I purchased the property 10 years ago. To be honest, I’m surprised that this is the first time we have experienced major trouble with the heating and cooling components. I have been very careful to have routine tune-ups and service appointments performed on the furnace and the air conditioner. The last problem was Major and I had to replace the entire system. When I heard the news, my first thought was the cost associated with such a large job. I received an estimate from the HVAC company that I regularly use. I also decided to get separate quotes from three additional HVAC companies that are located in the area. I didn’t plan on using a different company, but I hoped a lower quote would force my company to give me a better deal. All four HVAC companies quoted me a price that was similar. I was beginning to feel discouraged until someone mentioned an online coupon that could save me five percent off any job over $5000. I called my preferred HVAC company and asked them to match that price with the coupon. They agreed and I saved almost $300 by doing the research and estimate work!
