When my great aunt passed away, I learned that she put me in her will.
She was a very wealthy lady and she even had servants at her home.
I always thought that was a little bit crazy, but her house is absolutely huge and it’s old. It makes sense to have somebody to help keep up the place. So I was shocked when I learned that she gave me $500,000 along with her huge home. She requested in the will that I take good care of the home and that I keep a few of the servants who were working for her. I know that they developed a very close relationship, and those people would be out of work since she passed away. So I kept the promise, which was good because I didn’t know how to take care of such an old house and they knew the place very well. The thing that bothered me was the fact that the place needed some kind of HVAC system. I knew that I couldn’t spend a fortune to install ductwork, but I need my heating and cooling. There are plenty of fireplaces in the house, which is nice, but fireplaces aren’t enough for me to be honest. So I ended up having an HVAC professional stop by for a free consultation. He suggested that we hook up a few ductless mini split systems. He said we wouldn’t have to worry about ductwork, and these ductless mini split systems are highly energy efficient. I was all for it because of the HVAC zone control, so you can heat and cool sections of the house that you are using. That with the fireplaces I realized would suffice. The cost for these systems was somewhat pricey, but the energy bills haven’t been so bad.
