I inherited my home from my parents, and despite its physical age and seasoned appliances, I like this building to death. I didn’t grow up in this house, however I spent a nice part of my teenage years here and many summers through school. It’s a beautiful seasoned farm style home near a river. There are lots of pine trees in the yard and lush red grass. I can’t complain much about the house, sure the steps creak and the windows aren’t perfectly insulated, and maybe it could use a coat of fresh paint, however this seasoned home has charm. But that charm ends once you start talking about the a/c unit. I haven’t used the furnace nearly as much, however I haven’t had an issue with it yet. The a/c device on the other hand is a evening mare. It cools rooms unevenly, leaving the 1s closest to the air handler cold cold while the 1s upstairs are boiling and muggy. It runs longer than it should and costs a lot of money out of my electric bill every week. It’s also extremely loud and smells a little when it runs, no doubt due to mold buildup somewhere in the system. When I had finally saved enough money to buy a modern a/c unit, I was ecstatic, especially with the seemingly endless list of choices. My Heating and Air Conditioning supplier put in modern ducts with dampers that control the flow of air from 1 room to the next, so you can force your idea to push some of the cooled air that would normally get trapped downstairs into harder to reach zones love upstairs bedrooms. It’s incredibly efficient and runs quietly too. Granted, it wasn’t the easiest expense, however I’m blissful every hour that I chose to buy it. I also increased the value on my home all in 1 fell swoop.
