About a year ago, I lost our task and was unable to find another. Falling behind on our mortgage, health insurance and daily expenses, I needed to figure out a way to gain a living. I decided to make some changes to our apartment and create a bed-and-breakfast. While I was tied up over taking out a loan, the renovations were fairly minor and extravagant. I am fortunate to have a boiler heating system, which adapted well. The boiler pumps heated water through a system of pipes, which are connected to baseboard heating systems in each room. The hydronic heating system is appealingly energy efficient, safe, and clean. It also allows easy zoned control of temperature. With the addition of control units in all of the rooms, each space can now be controlled independently. Not only are the guests able to customize temperature to their preference, but I avoid heating unoccupied rooms. Plus, the influx of heat is honestly gentle, and because no current air is introduced, it avoids an influx of dust and other allergens. I’ve never had a guest complain about the cleanliness, comfort or smell of the rooms. Because the system heats up honestly suddenly, maintains an even temperature, and uses little energy, our daily costs are kept quite low. Prior to summer, I need to invest in some type of cooling system. I have held off because I wanted to make sure our business proposal would job out. I am now planning to install a ductless multi-split a/c, which won’t require any major tear down and should perfectly suit our requirements.
