When I lived in apartments, and I lived in a lot of them, one of my biggest problems was the HVAC. The HVAC equipment was rarely sized for the air volume of where I was living. So the heating and cooling capacity was already overwhelmed. And on top of that, I can’t remember one place where I rented that had any sort of consistent HVAC maintenance. Plus, whenever there was a real problem with the heating and cooling, which was often, there was never an HVAC professional addressing it. There was always the handyman who came along, tinkered around to get some heating and cooling then left. So when I helped my dad turn his basement into an apartment, I told him to make the HVAC unit a priority. Dad and mom are retired and they could certainly 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 sitting on a gold mine of a space. Hence the finishing off the basement into a very nice two bedroom apartment. It has its own entrance and now has state of the art HVAC technology. Dad had the HVAC company come out to install a great ductless heat pump. This thing produces the best temperature in the new apartment. I wasn’t sure that just one would do it but I was so wrong. The new apartment has the most even and inviting heating and cooling. It’s far, far better than any apartment HVAC I ever experienced. And Dad will for sure have the HVAC technician out for proper HVAC service.
