It’s funny how sometimes 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 my old apartment to thank for that. When I got my first job out of college, I purposefully chose a less expensive apartment in order to save for a house. This was more important to me than a fancy car or an expensive rental condo downtown. Instead, I dealt with loud neighbors, weak HVAC cooling and cramped quarters in order to keep saving for a downpayment. But it’s just one 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 HVAC 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 HVAC situation in my apartment that I decided to get creative. And that’s how I ended up pooling my money with 2 other people to buy a house. It’s a big place with 3 floors so we all have our own living space. Plus, when it came to replacing the central air conditioning, we chose to go with the ductless heat pumps. It was more affordable since the ductwork was shot as well. We also get to have our customized heating and cooling in each living space thanks to the ductless heat pumps.
