The condo my husband and I bought did not come with Heating and Air Conditioning equipment; The previous device must have died, been removed and then before the homeowner could sell his house, he died, but i got quite a deal on the condo because of this; However, not having Heating and Air Conditioning was a bit daunting.
I knew I couldn’t go forever without heating and cooling.
In the wintertime no heating meant that the pipes could freeze, the water would expand inside them and cause the pipes to burst. In the summer time no A/C means the humidity would create condensation on my walls, floors and corners. I then would have mold growth, wood mangle and bugs, but choosing the perfect heating and air system wasn’t easy though. I looked online at a Heating and Air Conditioning company’s website. They had so many weird systems to choose from, and did I want ductless or to connect to existing ductwork? Did I want some type of oil furnace or fireplace? There are mini splits and heat pumps that are more high-priced but said to be more efficient. There are boiler systems and radiant heated floors that have many capabilities except they only deliver heating. I ended up just talking to my local Heating and Air Conditioning specialist and asking for advice. All of us walked through my condo and he determined what I physically could have and found out what I needed. Did I want zone control? Did I mainly want heating? How pressing is powerful AC? After all the questions were answered, the Heating and Air Conditioning professional found the perfect solution for me. I am cheerful with the end result.
