When our hubby and I were looking to buy a new house, there were a lot of things that were on the list. I wanted to have a house that was basically renovated. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money updating the living room, bathrooms and redoing the flooring. I was okay adding a fresh coat of paint, but I didn’t want to do much else. My hubby wanted a place to park his vehicle that had a covering, then he additionally needed some style of tool shed to put his mower, workout device and multiple device in there. The house every one of us ended up buying had all of our wants, however one thing that he and I had to provide on was the state of the Heating and A/C equipment. The house was basically upgraded with lots of space and all the bells and whistles, however whoever was in the home last didn’t take good care of the heating and cooling system. The existing heat pump system is barely hanging on by a thread. It also operates with ductwork and it is undoubtedly disfigured. My hubby and I have noticed that the thermostat setting is more wishful thinking. I guess there are holes in the air ducts, allowing the treated air to escape the home. This makes the heat pump toil harder and potentially allows it to overheat. It is a matter of time where I will need to put money down to take care of the heat pump. It needs professional service, ductwork cleaning and I might even add an media air cleaner. So buying an upgraded house didn’t entirely save me money after all.
