The woes of an HVAC in a rental home

Actually owning a lake household has become a bit more tedious the older I become.

There just seems to be so many details to chase down.

I’m so exhausted of being the one who has to take care of everything. Also, with the economy the way it is now, household ownership is not necessarily the financial windfall it has traditionally been. I have been lucky in the past to be able to turn a bit of a profit from household sales. Now, that I have sold this last home and only broke even, it might be time to simply rent full time. The weight of household ownership has become too heavy. I love the plan that the next time the air conditioning 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 and Air Conditioning tech to repair the cooling device. There is also a downside to the rental idea. The rental office doesn’t always move with the speed of concern. The household all of us currently occupy has an ancient heating and cooling device. It’s way overdue to be replaced. I’ve pointed this out many times to the rental office however it appears to fall on deaf ears all the time. The heat pump for our component has less than a 10 SEER rating. It may even still be using R 22 refrigerant which is about to become illegal in this country. I even reminded the rental office that 2020 marks the time where Heating and Air Conditioning devices are obsolete given the new laws. I have encouraged them to replace the heat pump now before the backlog makes doing so very difficult for most people. I love the freedom of renting a place to live however it does require a new type of patience that I’m not all that accustomed to.
