I decided to start looking at older homes in my area after failing to secure a newer property for sale on my meager budget.
The real estate market is getting silly all over the country and I have family members in a different state who are going through the same problems as I.
When I found a house that reminded myself and others of my Grandparents’ outdated condo before they passed away, I decided to take it and view it as a slow renovation project. It’s not so terrible if you can do a lot of the work yourself on the weekends when you have time, but otherwise it would have been myself and others biting off more than what I can chew. I have had no option but to cut the renovation projects apart and do them step by step. Even though I want modern home office appliances, there are other parts of the condo that need immediate attention first. While the roof is now fixed, I have a window in the attic that needs to be updated. When I was up there recently, I saw that there was some injure to my HVAC duct and realized there were visible air gaps where I could see light shining in from below. That’s when I decided to call my heating and cooling business, and she confirmed my suspicions about the injured ventilation system. Every one of us went over options for modern Heating and Air Conditioning systems, and I opted for a modern boiler heating system to bypass the HVAC duct. Running heated air through attic HVAC duct is harshly inefficient, even if there are no air gaps of any kind, because the attic is always going to be colder from having no temperature control up there. Your moderate air will immediately lose a few degrees of heat in the process.
