I decided to beginning looking at older homes in our section after failing to secure a newer property for sale on our meager budget.
The real estate market is getting crazy all over the country and I have family members in a unusual state who are going through the same troubles as I.
When I found a home that reminded myself and others of our Grandparents’ seasoned apartment before they passed away, I decided to take it and view it as a slow renovation project. It’s not so bad 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 chop the renovation projects apart and do them step by step. Even though I want up-to-date family room appliances, there are other parts of the apartment that need immediate attention first. While the roof is now fixed, I have a window in the attic that needs to be upgraded. When I was up there recently, I saw that there was some mangle to our 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 our heating and cooling corporation, and he confirmed our suspicions about the disfigured ventilation system. The people I was with and I went over options for up-to-date Heating & Air Conditioning systems, and I opted for a up-to-date boiler heating plan to bypass the HVAC duct. Running heated air through attic HVAC duct is seriously 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 warm air will instantly lose a few degrees of heat in the process.
