It’s weird how sometimes when you just sort of give up, things tend to work out. When I say give up, I mean just apply some acceptance and let go of worry when it comes to tough challenges. And being able to have my own HVAC equipment in my own house was a huge challenge. Yet, that’s exactly what I did when it came to feeling like I was just banging my head on the wall when it came to saving for a downpayment. I’m not married and have lived in an apartment with ancient HVAC equipment for the better part of the decade. But all that changed just last week as we moved into our newly renovated house. I say we because I joined forces with some other friends to purchase a three story home that we own together. I was sick of the poor quality heating and air in my apartment as well as not being able to build any equity. The more I saved for a down payment, the further away the prices got. So once we spoke to a lawyer and understood how we could all protect our interests, it seemed like a no brainer. The fact that we found this house right away right in our price range, appeared to be a great big green light from the universe. When it came to renovations on the house we decided against central air conditioning. The ductwork in the house was shot and so that was cost prohibitive to replace. Instead, we have ductless heat pumps on each floor which also allows us individual thermostat control. It’s working out really great and I’m so thankful for this sort of HVAC technology.
