I have always been told that you should never live in a home that has a heating and cooling system that’s over 18 years old.
I can’t believe it! My sister graduates from college this weekend and now is the time for her to start looking for a full-time job and go house hunting. I am going to assist her in trying to find an apartment or home to rent. And my other ceiling is going to help her find a full-time job. As a realtor I am very knowledgeable when it comes to valuable and quality homes. I do not want my sister to rent from someone and the home be a total dump and the price is completely outrageous. I also want her to live in a safe neighborhood. I have a few ideas in mind but I’m more concerned about the heating and cooling systems in homes than anything else. If she’s looking to rent from someone she needs to make sure that their heating and cooling system is up to date and maintenanced well. I have always been told that you should never live in a home that has a heating and cooling system that’s over 18 years old. A heating and cooling system that is that old screams a lot of money in replacement and mechanical issues. My sister is very interested in living in an older home and I told her that if she wants to live in an older home the heating and cooling system needs to be modern and not old. Not to mention, it’s also good to ask the homeowner if they have an hvac maintenance log or inquire on how many times a year the heating and cooling system has been maintenance within the past year. I’m hoping that she can find a home to rent that meets her needs and my HVAC needs for her as well.
