My sister always believed in doing things in a timely fashion.
There was always a time for everything in her books, and spontaneity was not something she subscribed to.
Unlike me, who believed in taking things as they come, my sister was meticulous and very particular. She would plan for everything. I enjoyed the thrill of not knowing what was next, but this would drive her crazy because she always had to know where everything was. One time I suggested shopping for a new AC for our parents since we had never seen the old unit we grew up using changed. The air conditioning system had begun making some strange noises, and I could tell that these were signs of aging. To my surprise, my sister had a long list of dos and don’ts about HVAC system shopping. I thought it was a matter of walking into any HVAC business store and checking out different options on offer before comparing with other shops. There is a specific time to shop for heating and cooling units. I marveled as she explained how buying an AC in winter or early spring was the most appropriate time for my pocket. Some of the gains included getting excellent unit and installation services prices since not many people demanded both services. It is possible to find a desperate technician to do an excellent job at a fraction of the regular peak season price. My sister also explained that these times also allow you more time to research and decide without the urgency of needing a cooling unit. She made a lot of sense, and I was glad that she was around to help me avoid mistakes that would have cost me a lot of money.
