The HVAC warranty Face

I hate the physical reaction when you first realize you forgot about something crucial.  Mine usually starts with my eyes widening and my mouth dropping open. Then there is the first of many expletives as the realization of memory lapse crystalizes.  Then it’s the gut punch followed by about of a half pint of instant stress sweat. It just sucks. And, it hardly ever varies, this routine. I now all of this far too well.  Unfortunately, I have a very recent memory of the Forgot Face. I had a beautiful new HVAC unit put in several months ago. It was quite the experience. I called around to many HVAC contractors and got pitches from them all.  Due diligence was mission accomplished. I knew more about heating and cooling systems than I ever wanted to. But, I also find researching the best solutions to be, if not fun, at least interesting. Finally, I found the right HVAC company who delivered on all their promises.  My new HVAC system works brilliantly. The house has never been more cool. And the first utility bill blew my mind with all the money I saved. I was fat, happy and proud to be alive. But, it seemed like I was forgetting something. Man, was I ever. The Forgot Face hit and I ran to the basement.  My HVAC contractor had given me the warranty material and that was the last place I saw it. I found the papers between two studs just where I’d laid them. I scrambled back upstairs to see how long I had to register the warranty. I nearly threw up when I saw 30 days. I picked up the phone, called the HVAC manufacturer.  Thankfully, I found an understanding prince of a guy who let me register it right then.
