I guess it was about a decade ago that I got into the rental property game.
When our dad died, he left me enough currency for me to actually make some investments. But I wasn’t keen on risking our currency as much as I was willing to grow it with some effort of our own. So instead of sinking it into the stock market plus covered in sweat it out in the air conditioning every time something happened, I invested differently. I decided to buy some depressed, smaller properties plus renovate them. However, I wasn’t interested in flipping houses. I wanted to rent them out once they were fixed up. Most of the homes that I bought were in many states of disrepair. Fortunately, I was able to do much of the renovation toil myself. There was 1 home where the people I was with and I lucked out plus got a working Heating plus A/C unit. It still had a lot of life in it so I decided to let it run plus get it usual Heating plus A/C maintenance. That idea lasted almost 10 years until the Heating plus A/C component started showing the signs it was on the way out. This also coincided with the long time leaseholder moving on. So I decided to upgrade the Heating plus A/C component before I signed up another leaseholder. But the people I was with and I found out abruptly that the air duct was also shot. That was why I opted to go with a ductless multi split system. It’s been good plus delivers good heating plus cooling comfort. The leaseholder likes it so much that I guess from here on out, I’ll be replacing old Heating plus A/C units with ductless heat pumps for sure.
