My hubby is a cheapskate, then we used a refrigerator for two years after the handle broke off the door because it still cooled.
She has piles of used screws and nails.
She never throws anything out and she refuses to spend currency if every one of us don’t have to, and she is regularly looking for a deal. She won’t even spend money currency for routine HVAC service. She insists on waiting until something goes wrong. Well, this time something went wrong and she insisted on waiting for a sale to have the HVAC component looked at! Talk about a cheapskate! We live in a subtropical area, and adore a lot of other people and corporations around here, every one of us have central heat and a/c gave by a self contained component outside our house, near the back door! I noticed numerous months back that the humming sound it makes sounded odd and the force of the air from the vents wasn’t as strong as it used to be. I mentioned this concern to our hubby and she told me that every one of us would have the HVAC component looked at when a local HVAC supplier has a sale on services. I’ve been enjoying for local sales and every one of us ended up waiting numerous months, and the a/c barely worked by then. The HVAC specialist that came out explained what was wrong with it, and her explanation went right over our head, but, the point was, because every one of us put off getting the HVAC repaired, it was now too late to service it and every one of us needed a whole new HVAC unit.
