I’ve never been what you’d call a handy kind of person.
I never learned how to change my own tires or fix my own car or anything like that.
Now that I’m older, I really wish that I had taken the time to learn how to do all of that stuff back when I was young. I know that my dad would’ve gladly shown me how to change my own oil or repair my own furnace or A/C unit myself if I had only taken the time to do it! Back then, though, I was too busy with all of my friends and my social life to worry about doing anything like that. It seems so dumb and trivial now to have wasted all of that time that I could’ve been doing something useful with my life. Anyway, we have a new house now that we just finished building. The HVAC contractors for the house put in a high efficiency furnace and a high-tech state of the art air conditioning system for us. The HVAC system is supposed to be one of the best ones there is. Apparently, with this type of heating and cooling system, you’re supposed to be able to save a whole lot of money on your heating and air conditioning bills throughout the year. I’m hoping that eventually, the HVAC system will pay for itself with the savings that it brings. That’s because it was the most expensive system that the HVAC company sells! I think we will be happy with it once I learn how to use it. And it would be even better if I could figure out how to do the routine maintenance and air filter changes myself.
