Now that I’m no longer living paycheck to paycheck, I would adore to put my new income to good use around the house.
I want to make improvements where I can to better our lives and add value to the house.
More equity is regularly a good thing, and sometimes you can use it to negotiate a better mortgage with a lower interest rate. Part of this process involved adding a swimming pool in the backyard. I kept my plans a secret from my wife and my children so I could surprise them once I had the deal negotiated with the pool supplier. I didn’t want to get them gleeful in the off opportunity that I couldn’t afford the project after speaking with several pool dealers in the area. As much as I love the new pool, I had no interest in stopping my cabin improvement projects there. The two of us have an a/c in the house that is almost 14 years old, which means that it needs to be updated in the next few years. Obviously we could buy a similar idea to update the old 1 while looking for something more energy efficient, although I have odd plans. I want to invest in a heat pump instead of a traditional a/c. I’m fascinated by a heat pump’s ability at transferring heat energy from indoors to outdoors, and vice versa. During the warm weeks it pulls heat energy from your house and releases it outside through the condenser unit, just adore a traditional a/c. But while we were in the Winter the whole process is reversed, and whatever heat energy in the ambient air is transferred inside. Imagine installing a window a/c backwards in a window, and that’s essentially what you get. All of that heat that normally leaves your house and goes outdoors is instead harvested from outdoor air and pushed indoors to heat your home.
