My husband and I move a lot with his work. While looking for houses to rent in a new town, the first thing I look for is central HVAC. I grew up with space heaters and window A/C units. The first place my husband and I rented had space heaters and a window A/C unit. Then we were introduced to central VAC. We will never go back. Gone are the days of sleeping on the floor in the living room in the summer in order to stay cool near the A/C unit. We will never huddle around a space heater again just trying to stay warm. With an HVAC system, the whole home stays cool when the A/C is on and warm when the heat is on. There is little to no temperature gradient and no need to kneel next to the vents in order to feel the comfortable air. That is why central HVAC is a must from now on for any new home that we rent. All this moving around really helps the two of us recognize what we do and don’t want when we are finally ready to settle down and buy our own house. Every new home has its up and down sides. we make a mental note of things we do and do not like about each house. When we do buy our own home, it is going to have to be perfect. It is also going to have to have a really good and quiet HVAC system, obviously.
