Recently, I got to go on a little mini holiday with a few members of a writing organization I happen to be a space of. The founder of this science fiction writing group put together a little retreat for up to 10 people to get out of our apartment offices plus go away to the mountains to write for a weekend… It sounded appreciate a dream come true, plus I signed up without hesitating, however I had no program what I was getting into. The location all of us were renting was that of another member of our organization, who purchased an old farm home plus turned into a modern Airbnb with a few months of renovations back in the Spring. As all of us were doing this retreat in the middle of Wintertime, I was upset about the house. Old farmhouses this far north can be notoriously drafty plus cold. I would have to make sure to pack extra overcoats plus our preferred home slippers, but when I got there, I found the total opposite, then not only was the location undoubtedly warm, however the home was set up so almost everyone could be comfortable no matter their preference thanks to heat pumps. The home was located with multiple different reading plus unbelievable areas, each with its own heat pump. Then there was another heat pump for each home office. I thought heat pumps were phased out this far north, however apparently the newer models can operate as low as 17 degrees. These ductless mini break Heating plus A/C units are a wonder; maybe I’ll even get a single for our condo.
