Having been raised in a city, I just wasn’t so sure that I wanted the same for my children.
Yet, my wife and I came to a point where we either moved our family or kept them in the same schools in the city and stayed.
My wife and I were raised in the city and there are good things about that experience. Even apartment life had some positives. There was the radiant heating in the winter. This sort of HVAC heating was so comfortable. The air conditioning in the summer wasn’t so great but that comes with the territory. As soon as we bought this property, the HVAC equipment was one of the first priorities we addressed. My wife and I decided that we would buy a place about 90 minutes out of the city. This house comes with lots of space. There’s some 20 acres, a farmhouse and lots and lots of nature. It was all in pretty decent shape with just needs for upgrades. Having lived with apartment HVAC our whole lives, getting great residential HVAC was at the top of the list. The old farmhouse was in great shape but it was not designed for modern HVAC equipment. We had a wood stove for heating and there were window air conditioners but we wanted more of a residential HVAC system. We ended up going with ductless heat pumps in our home. There are several ductless heat pumps strategically placed throughout our house. They’re wonderful and we’re lucky to have them. I’m just so impressed with the sort of quality heating and air that they provide.
