It’s funny how occasionally the smaller details can end up driving change and being the tipping point to committing to change.
That’s exactly what happened to me.
And I have the not so great quality heating and air of our old condo to thank for that. When I got our first task out of college, I purposefully chose a less high-priced condo in order to save for a house. This was more pressing to myself and others than a overpriced vehicle or an high-priced rental home downtown. Instead, I dealt with loud neighbors, weak Heating and Air Conditioning cooling and cramped quarters in order to keep saving for a downpayment. But it’s just 1 of those things where the goal post kept moving the closer I got to them. This was so frustrating. I was putting in long hours inside the zone controlled Heating and Air Conditioning of the office in order to get to the point where I could buy a house. Yet, I just couldn’t quite get there. It was so frustrating and I was so over the Heating and Air Conditioning situation in our condo that I decided to get creative. And that’s how I ended up pooling our money with 2 other people to buy a house. It’s a large locale with 3 floors so all of us all have our own living space. Plus, when it came to replacing the central A/C, all of us made the decision to go with the ductless heat pumps. It was more affordable since the HVAC duct was shot as well. We also get to have our customized heating and cooling in each living space thanks to the ductless heat pumps.
