Retirement comes with a heat pump
It’s sort of weird when something you’ve dreamed about and planned for over the decades finally comes true.
There aren’t all that many long term scenarios that come true like when you retire.
Honestly, I’m just lucky that retirement was still an option with all the financial challenges we’ve faced over the years. However, leaving the zone controlled HVAC of my corner office wasn’t all that easy. While I was excited to start the next chapter of my life, it was tough to say goodbye to a passion I’d worked at all my adult life. Still, it was time to turn over that corner office to the next person who would get to enjoy the perfect heating and cooling of that zone controlled HVAC. My wife was the one who really got it done those last few years prior to me retiring. She called it quits on her career a few years before me and so she started lining up the new life we would embark upon. Like so many of our friends, we chose to leave the cold winter behind and move to the south. I have to say that I wasn’t sad saying goodbye to the gas furnace and welcoming the heat pump as sole HVAC method going forward. The heat pump has more than lived up to the billing as well. That thing really is a marvel. We get all the HVAC cooling we need during the nearly 8 months of the year that it’s on. But I was also impressed to see that the heat pump was plenty to knock the chill off a mild winter as well.
