I’m not one for change.
Often, I even view beneficial change as something a bit more than what I can take.
Being a creature of habit, when my structure gets interrupted or changed, I tend to resist or go straight for denial. Neither of those plans is a good one. So when the HVAC technician told me that the HVAC unit was in need of an upgrade, I didn’t take it well. First, this statement from the HVAC professional caught me by surprise. How that happened is another example of subconsciously burying my head in the sand. I was completely aware that we’d been in our house for more than two decades. Thus, I knew for a fact that we had the HVAC equipment installed just after we bought the house. In fact, it was part of the negotiations for buying the house. But I just blocked out the fact that the HVAC equipment doesn’t last forever. I’d always gotten the necessary seasonal HVAC maintenance and we never had an HVAC issue of any kind. When I got the news that the HVAC unit was on its last legs, I initially wanted to believe something else and resisted talking with the HVAC contractor. My wife wasn’t having any of that though as she faces challenges head on. The new residential HVAC has been installed and it is amazing. Not only was it not a hassle, it barely interrupted my routine at all. So believe me when I say not to fear having the HVAC equipment replaced as it will only be a good thing.
