My partner, Jill, and I have been having some particularly hard times with money in the past couple of months… My friend and I fell on some hard financial times when our car, air conditioning and fridge all stopped working in the same week. My friend and I had to replace all of them because they are essential to our weekly lives! However, it was not straight-forward to have to write a check for each one. My friend and I decided that instead of buying a brand current car, air conditioner and fridge my buddy and I would try to find used versions of each, and the used car and fridge came from my sister who was looking to replace both. However, my buddy and I had to go to a thrift store to find a used air conditioner; I was a little hesitant to get a used air conditioner, but my partner said she thought it would be okay. However, after having the used air conditioner in our home for about a week, I knew immediately I was right. My friend and I started to notice more dust and debri in the home than my buddy and I had ever had before. My dust irritations were starting to act up because it was so dusty in the house. I started to wonder if the Heating, Ventilation & A/C supplier that installed our used air conditioner cleaned it well enough. I am now worried that my buddy and I are going to have to pay to have the Heating, Ventilation & A/C supplier to come back out and look at the air conditioner to see if they notice any troubles with it.
