So I fixed my own AC unit

Every year I have to recharge my AC unit 2 times to get through the summer. Normally $125. This year they told me Freon has gone way up due to the gov trying to do away with it and it will cost $700 to recharge. They tell me I really need to think about replacing my system , which they have said every year. It is original to the house built in 1977 so its 33 years old. So they tell me it's gonna cost $5000-$7000 off the hip but they will send a guy over to give me a definite price. I tell the wife , screw that !

Three days later Sam shows up , he measures the house and tours the attic, comes back down and whips out his computer. He first shows me that I have 3 inches of blown insulation in my attic where as I should have 13 inches. He talks to me for 2 hours to get all the details, how many people, number of showers taken , how much cooking is done in the kitchen and so on. Then he starts printing off estimates of new systems. The first one is $17,000 and they work their way down to $5000. He shows me how the most effecient system will save me $1100 / year in energy savings. Then to reinsulate the attic another $6000 which alone will save me another $800 a year. They seal everything tight in the process.

So after much debate I went ahead and got the Cadillac system and put it all on a new credit card at o% for 21 months.

Gee I sure feel ****in cozy now.

I guess you all have never really owned a credit card that has a great interest rate. One late payment and it's 21% sucker.

trust me on this, sheesh.

So , why would you be late on a payment then homey. I've used 0% CC for 30 years and never been late. I guess that's because I know what I'm doing .

It happens! I'm not saying people do it on purpose but what's the old saying again? Oh yah "schit happens." $17k and 21 months that's a little over $800 a month which I'm sure is no problem for you. But if you are just a hair late one month then it skyrockets up to like 21% or whatever.

I would have gotten a 5 year loan at the old credit union at like what 5% interested or something (I admit I don't know because I haven't gotten a loan in a long time, but interest rates are at an all time low) and paid it off early because obviously, I can make more than the minimum payment.

But whatever, rock on with your new AC!

Nice assumption, dumb ass.

As a former HVAC tech you never should have paid anyone to "charge" your system with freon. If it needs charged the leak should have been fixed period "no ands, ifs or buts."

I hope you at least considered a Ground source heat pump which will save you tons of money and operate longer than a typical split system.

They aren't bullshitting on the utility savings. Even low efficiency new units are ridiculously more efficient than anything that would have been installed 40+ years ago.

If you had to have the thing refilled twice a year you had a pretty good leak going on.
that's prolly why it's snowing in may; should have fixed that leak a long time ago.
