I recently moved from the city in the North to a small rural area in the South. The move was a long time in planning and executing. There was the transition from going to an office in the city to being able to do that same work from home. Additionally, my children needed to finish the school year and have the summer to adjust to their new surroundings. I had to make several trips back and forth before the big move. The main reason was to oversee the renovation of our new home. It’s an old house but a new home to us. The structure of our home is super solid so, there wasn’t too much gutting which had to be done. In fact, we mainly just tore out interior walls to open the first floor up all the way. However, there is not a modern HVAC unit in the house. The home was heated by a wood stove during the mild winters. And, it was cooled off with fresh air and fans during the summer. I knew the idea of a summer in the South with no air conditioning would be asking a bit much. My kids my revolt outright. I found the solution on an HVAC website. I purchased a multi split HVAC system. It is incredible. I don’t have to run air ducts through the home to enjoy heating and cooling. I simply install the indoor air handling units high on an exterior wall. The inside unit is then connected to a compressor through a hole in the exterior wall. So, I have an inside unit for the upstairs area where my kids sleep. Then, there is another air handling unit downstairs to heat and cool the main floor. I am so impressed with the efficiency and the power of this HVAC system. And, it probably kept my family from getting back in the car and hightailing it for the city.
