Because my a/c died on myself and others the fourth month I moved in, and despite having a service warranty, it left myself and others without a/c for a month in the dead middle of summer.
It was difficult making the final decision on my recent home purchase. I spent months scanning through hundreds of for sale postings on many real estate websites and was racking my brain deciding on my best course of action. If I wanted a house, I’d have to go over budget and would have no money left over for furniture or remodelling. Otherwise, I could go under budget and purchase a condominium, leaving myself and others left over money for remodelling and the like. To be honest, I wasn’t cheerful of the idea of buying what I felt was essentially an condo that I’d only partially own, then and then I’d still be responsible for monthly fees from the building association for grass care and general maintenance. Since the difference in price was nearly forty grand, I decided to take the plunge and buy the condo. I knew that I’d at least have a beautiful view to gaze at from my bedroom window, overlooking a lake with a immense wilderness preserve behind it. When I had my inspections, I was told the a/c was only many years outdated and not to worry about it’s performance and longevity for at least another many years. Although I run my a/cs a lot harder than many people do, I trusted the inspector, my immense blunder was in failing to research the manufacturer for the a/c before signing the sale contract. Because my a/c died on myself and others the fourth month I moved in, and despite having a service warranty, it left myself and others without a/c for a month in the dead middle of summer. My Heating and A/C supplier had to order the parts directly from the manufacturer to satisfy the demands on the warranty. After the fact, I discovered that my unique brand of a/c is a single of the cheapest and lowest rated manufacturers available, with many purchasers experiencing plan failures just years after replacement. I decided to use some of the money I saved by not buying a house and put it towards buying a high rated a/c.
