I’m positively thankful that I could get financing for a brand new AC unit. My mom and dad were in town for a visit last week and the AC unit broke down at the worst time. We were having a really nice dinner on the patio and I thought the sudden rise in the indoor temperature was due to opening and closing the door frequently. I never thought for a second that the issue might be due to a problem with the AC unit. When we finished with dinner, everyone went inside and that’s when I began to realize that the indoor temperature was much warmer and humid than it should be. My mom and my wife were in the kitchen doing dishes so I decided to have a look at the thermostat. My dad saw me looking at the thermostat. The temperature on the thermostat was set for 70°, but it was 78 degrees in the house. I called the AC company to repair the problem and I found out that I needed to replace the whole unit. I was definitely taken by surprise, because the AC was only six years old. The new equipment was over $4500 and I didn’t have any way to pay for the purchase. Thankfully, the HVAC equipment and service provider told my wife and I that we could get 100% financing for the new equipment. The interest rate was higher than I would have liked to pay, but I didn’t have to come out of pocket for any of the repairs or installation costs.
