And now, the modern renter has their own Heating and A/C thermostat.
There was a time there where we weren’t exactly sure if we were going to be able to pay the mortgage. I imagine there are plenty of other people who went through the same sort of thing when the pandemic hit. Not only were we laboring abruptly from inside the Heating and A/C security of home, we were doing so for far less money. Both my partner and I took major pay cuts in order to keep our tasks and labor from the at home. The cuts were so deep that we could barely pay our mortgage and eat. This situation forced us to get creative and quick. Our beach house genuinely has a finished basement with plumbing, electrical and it’s own separate entrance. So it didn’t take all that much to turn that space into a nice apartment. However, we did have to address the lack of heating and cooling. There was only 1 Heating and A/C HVAC duct vent down there. That just wasn’t going to do. Nor could we expect a renter to just go with whatever Heating and A/C setting we chose. So we called the Heating and A/C supplier for some help. The answer was a ductless heat pump. Well it was genuinely called a ductless mini split. It’s essentially a heat pump however without the HVAC duct. However, 1 of these made quick labor out of heating and cooling the modern apartment. And now, the modern renter has their own Heating and A/C thermostat. And we are able to clear our mortgage payment no problem. That was a load off our mind for sure. Now we are back to full salary however are absolutely cheerful to have that house rented to such a cool woman. It all worked out just fine.
