Ductless heat pump was answer to financial squeeze

The answer was sort of right in front of me the whole time. It’s just that I couldn’t see it. When I did, it was a sweet relief. Like many other families across the globe, my partner and I chose to go through our tolerable share of adjustments when the pandemic was raging. I got sent home from the zone controlled Heating and A/C of the office to work from the house. And that came with no bonuses and a pay split for like 15 months. Yet, I managed work inside the air conditioner of our house that first Summer. My partner was unfortunate as she lost her job completely. That’s when the panic nearly got the best of us. Her paycheck was just about half of our income and it was now suddenly gone. The house we own together comes with a mortgage that was right at the edge of our finances. And now the unthinkable had happened. It’s not like she could just apply and find work because nobody was hiring. My partner did get some gigs online and work alongside me inside the central AC. But that didn’t come close to helping us make ends meet. We thought we were going to have to sell the house. When the answer came, it was so amusing thinking about it. The basement was finished and had its own entrance and a bathroom with a shower. All we had to do was have the Heating and A/C supplier come out and install a ductless heat pump down there we could rent it out. That ductless heat pump might have saved our home.
