It took a lot longer than I thought it would take.
And I believe have to acknowledge that my dad was right about the home part.
When I chose to go into social work, dad wasn’t all that satisfied. While he liked the fact that I was a caring person who was committed to making a difference. He did not love the fact that I wouldn’t be making big money. My old person spent a career inside the zone controlled HVAC of an office that was tailored to his needs. My dad was all about making money. And he sat myself and others down in the air conditioner when I chose my major to clue myself and others in. While all of us disagreed over just about everything in that conversation. He was right about it taking forever for myself and others to have a home of my own. But finally, after years of saving & residing with questionable heating & cooling in apartments, I own some quality heating & air. Finally, I have a location of my own & can stop flushing my money in rent now that I am building equity in a house. And I love this location. It’s small, which is all I need but since it’s small, it keeps my costs down. And I was able replace the residential HVAC with a really efficient alternative. Instead of replacing the entire central air conditioner, including the HVAC duct, I went another direction. I chose to go with a ductless multi split for my heating & cooling needs. There are 3 of these ductless heat pumps in my house. They are just amazing & I couldn’t be more satisfied with this HVAC technology.
