Imagine yourself living in a totally free world. There would be no bills – no phone bill, no utility bill, no rent, no mortgage – nothing! You could easily walk into a store, pick up your favourite thing, stick it into your tote bag and walk right back out, without any harassmentent from the police. A silly thought, you say? Maybe. But for a financially challenged person like myself, It is a priceless dream.

           You see, my HVAC unit has been acting up and I need a new one which I cannot afford. Then again, my family and I cannot afford to spend another Summer, sweating..  Despite regular servicing, the air quality supplied by our HVAC unit leaves much to be desired, and it moans and groans like a very sick person. I hear that used HVAC units are sometimes available but the marketers of those offer no warranty on them. I have no desire to waste money I don’t even have, to purchase something which may further complicate my life. Last night I saw a TV ad which may be the solution to my problem.

           This HVAC provider in our town is offering trade packages on their inventory. They are willing to give customers credit for their old HVAC units, on purchasing a new one from them. So I am giving serious thought to that, even though I don’t expect to get much credit for that bag of bones we call a HVAC unit. I will still have to pay a tidy sum to replace it. But we desperately need a new cooling machine so I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.
