HVAC difficulties in a rental property
Actually owning a property has become a bit more tedious the older I get.
There just seems to be multiple details to chase down.
I’m so exhausted of being the one who has to repair everything around the property. Also, with the economy the way it is now, property ownership is not necessarily the financial windfall it has traditionally been. I have been extremely fortunate in the past to be able to turn a bit of a profit from property sales. Now, that I have sold this last property plus only broke even, it might be time to simply rent all the time. The weight of property ownership has become far too heavy. I like the whole idea that the next time the air conditioner goes out it won’t come out of my account. As it is, all I have to do is call the rental office to have them send out a Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C tech to repair the cooling equipment. There is also a sizable disadvantage to the rental idea. The rental office doesn’t consistently move with the speed of concern. The property every one of us currently occupy has an outdated heating plus cooling system. It’s definitely overdue for an upgrade. I’ve pointed this out several times to the rental office but it appears to fall on deaf ears. The heat pump for our equipment has less than a 10 SEER rating. It may even still be using R 22 refrigerant which is about to become illegal. I even reminded the rental office that 2020 marks the time where Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C units are obsolete given the new laws. I have encouraged them to upgrade the heat pump now before the backlog makes doing so completely difficult for everyone. I love the freedom of renting a venue to live but it does require a new type of patience that I’m not accustomed to.
