There are plenty of instances where I really wonder if I am getting the value out of the money I spend. Goods and services that I spend money on need to have value. I don’t think that is asking too much. Sure, I like to have things and I spend my money on essentials just like everyone else. It’s just that I really like to know that I am getting good value for the money that I spend. Even if I had unlimited funds, I still don’t think I would be the kind of guy who ignored spending while hanging out on the couch in the HVAC. I’m pretty engaged in my life and how I spend is part of that. Speaking of HVAC comfort, I also seek to find value in that as well. I have friends and neighbors who simply won’t spend on HVAC maintenance. It doesn’t matter what the data says. I know for a fact that leaving an HVAC unit unserviced will result in a minimum of 6 to 7 years lost. That means thousands and thousands of wasted HVAC replacement dollars of one’s lifetime. This makes absolutely zero sense to me. I spend money on my HVAC maintenance in order to protect the investment I have already made. That and to have the thing run well and be efficient. Sure, it costs a bit more each year than not doing it. But the value for the dollar is unquestionable when it comes to HVAC maintenance. That’s why I will be spending that money and feeling really good about it.
