New housing concept fits in with alternative heating and cooling

So the facts were the facts. If I waited until I saved enough to own my home, I would be getting my first starter house deep into my forties. When you don’t make a lot of money, homeownership can really be pretty much out of reach. And the more I tried to save for that downpayment, the more the real estate market went up. It felt like taking 2 steps forward followed by 3 steps backward. Finally, I knew that I had to go another way if I didn’t want to put up with apartment heating and cooling forever. And I’m very pleased that my friends and I came up with a great alternative housing strategy. What we did was join our savings in order to buy a house together. The house we purchased was three stories so each of us had a floor. And the place needed new HVAC equipment so that worked out in our favor as well. Since we really wanted to live separately and only share a kitchen and dining room, we wanted a heating and cooling situation that was independent. What I mean by that is we wanted to each have our own thermostat and be able to enjoy the heating and cooling we each wanted. That is exactly what happened when we went with a ductless multi split system. There are a series of ductless heat pumps in each living space as well as the kitchen. So we can all enjoy the exact thermostat setting we want for our individual living space. But we can also enjoy quality heating and air in the common areas as well.
