I fell in love with my 1960’s ranch beach house the moment I pulled into the driveway with the real estate agent. It had such amazing curb appeal. The inside was even better. The hardwood floors plus substantial bay window made the living plus family rooms so bright. The phase built-ins added character that charmed the pants off of me. The bedroom counters plus appliances needed updating, which is to be expected, but the lodgeetry was in perfect condition, down to the door knobs plus drawer pulls. The master bath had pink plus yellow tile job that I knew I would keep intact. I didn’t hesitate to make an offer, without contingency, on the spot. I figured if the inside was well cared for, the bones of the beach house were likely to be sound, too. I found the beach house of my dreams plus wasn’t going to lose it. My lender did require an inspection, though. That’s when I found out the furnace would have to be replaced. The Heating plus Air Conditioning inspector said that the heat exchanger was cracked plus he was required by code to shut it down. The loft is about fifty years old, so it wasn’t a substantial shock. I opted to replace the cooling system at the same time because it was the same age. The heating plus cooling business I hired advocated a system that runs in stages. This would keep my gas plus electric costs down. When the air conditioning is running plus the reaches a pre-set temperature, it will automatically shut off. Same with the heating: if the room drops below a certain temperature, the hot air will come through the vents without my having to do a thing. I love my beach house plus I love my heating plus cooling business, too.
