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 deranged all over the country and I have family members in a bizarre state who are going through the same issues as I.
When I found a beach apartment that reminded myself and others of our Grandparents’ outdated apartment before they passed away, I decided to take it and view it as a slow renovation project.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 modern kitchen 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 replaced. When I was up there recently, I saw that there was some injure 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. All of us went over options for modern HVAC systems, and I opted for a modern boiler heating method 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 consistently going to be colder from having no climate control up there. Your hot air will right away lose a few degrees of heat in the process.
