It’s been a wild ride over the past year and change.
- The pandemic thankfully hasn’t stopped at our door.
But we also were super vigilant when it came to following the protocols. I mean nobody wants to be shut up inside the air conditioning all year. Yet, that’s practically what we did. However, we also had a very intense financial component to deal with. I worked from home in the HVAC at a lesser salary. My wife, she lost her job and had to make do with gigging online. This made paying the bills beyond tough. So we got creative and part of the answer was calling the HVAC company. We discovered that our house could help us pay the bills. We have a basement that has plumbing and electric. All we had to do was do some finish stuff, add a few interior walls and we had a nice 2 bedroom apartment. Renting out our basement was not part of the plan but man did it ever save us. Like I said, it really didn’t take all that much to make a very nice place to live. However, there wasn’t any dedicated HVAC equipment so a renter could have independent heating and cooling. That was essential. And the HVAC professionals at the HVAC company had it covered. An HVAC technician came out and in not even a full day, had a pair of ductless heat pumps installed. It was amazing and the quality heating and air is remarkable. Now we have a great renter and our financial position is solidified. It really takes the pressure off as my wife looks for full time employment again.
