I honestly don’t even know how my buddies convinced me to buy my own DIY HVAC system to install on my own.
They said that I wouldn’t regret it and it was so easy that I could do the installation blindfolded.
Of course, they were exaggerating a lot because it’s not all that easy. Actually, I was totally confused when I was looking at the manual and trying to follow the directions. There weren’t many diagrams to look at and the instructions were mostly just wording that was tough to follow. I ended up calling my friends and they all laughed at me. They told me that I should have looked for an online tutorial because you can find tutorials for everything these days. I didn’t think to do that, but life was suddenly a lot easier when I found the exact tutorial I needed for my make and model of HVAC system. It’s a ductless mini split system with 5 zones. I cringed when I learned I had to drill hole through my outer walls, but my buddies helped me with the installation process. Looking back on everything, I think I would have figured everything out eventually if I had more patience, but my buddies made it much easier for me. We all had drinks and a huge BBQ when the installation was completed. I was basically celebrating because I saved a lot of money by installing the new HVAC system with my friends. The local HVAC contractor quoted a similar installation for more than double what I paid.
