So my wife and I decided to try something different this year.
- We have both been retired for a couple of years.
At first, being free from going to the same zone controlled HVAC of the office every day was amazing. We upgraded the HVAC equipment in our home to sell the place and made a bundle. Then, we traveled and followed all the passions that we had sort of put on the shelf as we went about our careers. However, we started to find that we both wanted to sink ourselves into a big project we could do together. Upgrading the HVAC and the other renovations we did to sell our old house really went surprisingly well and we took note of that. The fact was that our skills really blended well and we made a great renovations project team. That led us to taking a leap into buying a rental house. The place we bought was a small, 2 bedroom place that needed a lot of work but came at a great price. We jumped into the project with both feet and found that this was something we clearly liked to do. Finally, we scheduled the HVAC company to come out to replace the central air conditioning unit. But what we failed to realize was that the ductwork in that place was also shot. Thankfully, the HVAC contractor was able to pivot to ductless heat pumps and we got the place done on time. And actually, the ductless heat pumps are even better than that old central air conditioning. The tenant loves having them.
