It’s ironic that these days I find so much comfort at home, whereas before I had to struggle to get any when it came to heating and cooling.
- I was the only guy in the house, so this was the reason for it.
And it turns out that the internal thermostats of every woman I share a home with are very different from mine. I suppose I simply run a lot hotter than the rest of my family. I constantly try to lower the thermostat setting at this time of year to reduce the cost of heating the house. But man, do I ever hear it from the rest of the family. They all notice when I lower the temperature in the winter, even by a single degree. Or I’ll overhear someone screaming that the gas furnace will ignite the instant I lower the thermostat setting. However, now that I have my own HVAC system, everything has changed. No, I do not currently live alone, but after all these years, I do have a personal space. The pandemic probably made me realize that if I want to live to see the girls off to college, dad needs to have his own space. In order to convert a portion of the basement, my friend and I worked on it for a few months. A big screen TV, a ductless heat pump, walls, and a door have been added to this area. In reality, it’s a pretty rad place to hang out in a lounge. I can also get all the high-quality heating and air I want, when I want it, thanks to my own ductless heat pump.
