Sometimes making huge financial decisions when renting or buying a new beach condo can be daunting. It can be a question of forgoing remodeling efforts if it means tearing into the furniture or appliance budget too significantly. When I started renting our new condo several weeks ago, I had a seemingly endless list of troubles with the dwelling. Within the first week alone I had to have our plumbing from our home office to our bathroom repiped because of a gradual cut in the line that kept sending small amounts of water into the foundation of the house. Since it was a matter of protecting her upscale asset from losing any retainable value, our property owner was eager as well as willing to get the plumbing labor done. But when our a/c started performing poorly, I expected the same reaction from him—that wasn’t the case. Her HVAC specialist ran a few diagnostic tests on the system as well as determined that it was laboring within the parameters of what was possible for that machine, but that our property owner had bought as well as installed the wrong a/c for that particular condo as well as duct labor design. So in other words, nothing was wrong with the a/c, it was just paired with the wrong ventilation system as well as therefore was never capable of keeping the condo cool enough during the long sizzling summer time weeks. Since our property owner saw this setup as technically safe within the terms of our lease agreement, she told myself and others to spend money for it myself if I wanted a new system. I begrudgingly went out as well as bought a window a/c that same day to see if it could at least supplement the ailing HVAC system, but amazingly this thing now handles cooling our entire house. The air new is so strong that I just need our ceiling fans on to keep a wind stream flowing from room to room. With this new window unit, I don’t see any need to replace the HVAC system. I assume I can get away with a space gas furnace in the Winter time season as well.
