My husband and I bought our first house this month. It’s a beautiful but very old house in a beautifully established neighborhood. The only way we could afford a house was to buy an old house that needed repairs but it feels new to us! Luckily, my husband has always been great with tools. Before getting his general contractor’s license, he worked for 20 years in the construction industry. Although the previous couple lived in the house for 50 years, they left it in a terrible state of repairs. Each room had a terrible smell so we spent the first week of homeownership was spent deep cleaning the house. Some rooms of the house smelled like cats and dogs while other rooms of the house smelled like stale tobacco smoke so the odors were not pleasant. We finally sealed the walls and floors to get rid of the disgusting smells in the house. Even the ventilation system was left in a state of disrepair. From the attic down, the ventilations system needed something to be repaired. Before we realized it, whenever we turned on the HVAC system, the house was full of those odors again. We finally decided to install a ductless HVAC system. The ductless heating ventilation and a/c system does not require any ductwork at all. The ductless HVAC is an all-in-one machine that is very effective. There are only two heating ventilation air conditioning units in our house, in the master bedroom and living room. Together, they create plenty of cool air for the entire house.
