When I was looking at apartments, I wasn’t exactly sure what to look for, because while there were a few things I wanted in an apartment, I still didn’t have enough experience to know for sure what would be the best apartment to live in.
My parents were helping me decide, and my mother made sure to tell me to get an apartment with a central air conditioner.
Our home had a central heating and cooling unit, and since I have always had a good experience with the HVAC unit here, I believed her. My mother further told me about how she used to live in apartments with window cooling units, and they are not nearly as efficient as central HVAC machines. Usually those window A/C devices can only cool the room that it is in. So if you’re in any other part of the home, well you’re probably going to be cold. I wasn’t planning on moving out right away, but I was looking to get an idea of what I’d like. Getting the right heating and A/C device is definitely important where I live, because the temperatures here can be quite wild and unpredictable. The summers can be scorching hot, and the winters can be bitterly cold. The last thing I would want to do is live in an apartment where I am constantly uncomfortable, then I would dread going back to my own home! Of course, I was paying attention to other features as well, such as price and the area, but admittedly, I think I focused on HVAC the most!
