Our retirement dreams actually came true.
This certainly wasn’t the case for at least half of our friends back home.
We all come from a generation where if you worked hard and saved money, you got to retire and enjoy the good life. That’s all different these days as the best plans even got messed up with all the financial turmoil and changes. But when it was time for me to hang it up and leave the zone controlled HVAC of my office, I was ready. This was due, in large part, to my wife. She kept us on track when it came to our retirement plans. During the last few years inside that zone controlled HVAC of the office, my wife treated retirement preparation as though it were a full time job. We found the spot where we wanted to move. It was the south that was our destination and we were so pleased to trade a gas furnace for the heat pump of the south. The house she found was also perfect and came with a sunroom. Once we moved in, the sunroom was really great for much of the year and especially in the winter. But the summer out there was like an oven without air conditioning. So we changed that up after the first summer. The local HVAC company came out to install a ductless heat pump in the sunroom. It works like a charm now. We have all the HVAC cooling we need for the blistering summers down here. And the ductless heat pump also provides great HVAC heating for those chilly early morning in the winter.
