I want to get my dad a ductless mini split for Christmas. To get him this HVAC device will be tricky though. First, the cost of ductless HVAC is considerable. I don’t usually spend that much on my dad for Christmas. So, I need to convince one of my brothers to chip in with me. We could buy the HVAC system and HVAC installation together. I don’t need both of them to chip in though. Next, actually getting the HVAC installed will be hard. My dad is home all day long. He rarely leaves and when he does, it is not for long. I will again, need to coordinate with one of my brothers. They need to take my dad somewhere for a few hours. Maybe they could see a movie and then eat out. I then could schedule a HVAC installation date. I then would need to wait and babysit the HVAC contractor. After this, I would need to hide the fact that my dad has a ductless mini split. My father is pretty oblivious to things, but not that blind. Hiding the ductless mini split will be hard. That is why I need the ductless HVAC installed as close to Christmas as possible. It will cost way more money since it is nearing emergency HVAC time. Also, the availability for HVAC companies will be not as open. How am I going to get this done? I could wait until after the holidays. But, I like the idea of my dad having everything all set up and ready for him on the day.
