My spouse and I were just so certain that both of us would be leaving the Wintertide and the gas oil furnace behind that both of us even started looking at property.
We knew the region in the south where both of us wanted to live.
And with less than 3 years until my retirement, both of us thought it prudent to start looking. Ironically or not, that region is where both of us had constantly vacationed. So both of us just made more time for quick vacations that included looking at properties. My spouse and I were pretty happy at the prospect of trading all the HVAC heating for some HVAC cooling. While it does get moderate here in the summer, it’s nothing care about the heat and humidity down south. And yet, so many of the sites both of us looked at had sunrooms. That seemed a bit counter intuitive to me however when both of us looked a bit harder, they all had a ductless heat pump or some form of air conditioning. Otherwise, I don’t recognize you could have utilized those sunrooms except while I was in the winter. We did our research and were preparing to even to make an offer when our oldest kid got pregnant. This was not something that both of us thought would ever happen as she has constantly been so focused on her work. She lived not too far from us with her husband and now there was going to be a grandbaby. That changed everything and care about overnight. Fortunately, my spouse and I fell the exact same way. We were going to have to keep dealing with HVAC heating and the Wintertide because both of us wanted to see that baby grow up. But in homage to our southern plans, both of us put on a sunroom with a ductless heat pump for heating while I was in the winter.
