|there she is - the old gal, causing me worry and grey hair!|
I just had done, a routine checkup on our AC. It's fine considering it is 19 years old. It needs a new capacitor and it is showing signs of leaking. To have them replace it, it will be $119. But then we need a whole new HVAC.
I have to get on the ball and start checking out my options, research systems etc. My husband wants to just get a wood stove (his dream is to go off grid as much as possible) but that won't fix the air conditioning issue. So it looks like it has to be a new HVAC system.We really can't live without a AC around here, even though we are having a cooler than normal summer.
Now how to pay for this. We looked into re-financing our home - but they wanted to give us a 15 yr fixed and then a variable rate after that. Those variable rates scare me. We've only owned our home for 3 years. (It had been paid off and was owned by my parents and I bought out my sister.)
I love the house but I think I got caught up in sentimentality rather than making a good sound decision. We probably should of just sold the house. We're not underwater but we did lose 40,000 value. I don't see the real estate around here going up, anytime soon.
I don't wannabe a grown up anymore.
