offer me discounted service...
I would let a tech come in anytime if it needs service!!!
There. problem solved. no box in the front and I reap all the benefits.
I bet there is more people out there like me
and as for resell value... even better if I told them they would receive a discount on service if they bought my house over my neighbors. also I could do a little landscaping around it and it would be fine for me.
