The troubles with HVAC in a rental residence
Actually owning a residence has become a bit more tedious the older I get.
There just seems to be way too many details to chase down.
I’m so tired of being the one who has to maintenance everything. Also, with the economy the way it is these days, home ownership is not necessarily the financial windfall it has traditionally been. I have been quite fortunate in the past to be able to turn a bit of a profit from house sales. Now, that I have sold this last residence plus only broke even, it might be time to just go ahead and rent full time. The weight of house ownership has become especially heavy. I like the plan that the next time the air conditioner machine goes out it won’t come out of my account. As it is, all I have to do is get a hold of the rental office to have them send out a Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C tech to repair the cooling machine. There is also a setback to the rental idea. The rental office doesn’t regularly move forward with the speed of concern. The residence we currently occupy has an old heating plus cooling system. It’s way overdue for an upgrade. I’ve pointed this out quite a few times to the rental office however it appears to fall on deaf ears. The heat pump for our component has less than a 10 SEER rating. It may even still be using R 22 refrigerant which is going to become illegal. I even reminded the rental office that 2020 marks the time where Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C machines are obsolete given the modern laws. I have encouraged them to upgrade the heat pump now before the backlog makes doing so tough for a lot of people. I adore the freedom of renting a place to live however it does require a modern type of patience that I’m not used to.
