When I lived in apartments, & I lived in a lot of them, one of my largest concerns was the Heating & Air Conditioning.
The Heating & Air Conditioning equipment was rarely sized for the air volume of where I was residing. So the heating & cooling capacity was already overwhelmed. And on top of that, I can’t remember one locale where I rented that had any sort of consistent Heating & Air Conditioning service. Plus, whenever there was a real problem with the heating & cooling, which was often, there was never an Heating & Air Conditioning professional addressing it. There was typically the handyman who came along, tinkered around to get some heating & cooling then left. So when I helped my dad turn his basement into an apartment, I told him to make the Heating & Air Conditioning component a priority. Dad & mom are retired & they could entirely use some wiggle room on their finances. While they have all the equity in their home they chose not to tap that quite yet. Instead, they are resting on a gold mine of a space. Hence the finishing off the basement into a honestly nice many family room apartment. It has its own entrance & now has state of the art Heating & Air Conditioning technology. Dad had the Heating & Air Conditioning company come out to install a good ductless heat pump. This thing produces the best temperature in the new apartment. I wasn’t sure that just one would do it even though I was so wrong. The new house has the most even & inviting heating & cooling. It’s far, far better than any house Heating & Air Conditioning I ever experienced. And Dad will for sure have the Heating & Air Conditioning contractor out for common Heating & Air Conditioning service.
