The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C unit of my daughter Cassie malfunctioned in her condo and the technician told her that she needs to replace the unit. Several years ago, my husband and I bought an older house for my daughter. It worked out well since she just graduated from university and got a job. She could make the mortgage payments on her own. Over the years, she had a few minor maintenance issues, but nothing major. However, a broken Heater, Ventilation and Air Conditioning system is one of the most expensive things to replace in your home. Typically, a new Heating, Ventilation & A/C system costs between $5,000 and $10,000. The price depends on the size of the unit, the size and square footage of the home, and the efficiency of the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning system. It’s a good thing Cassie’s home isn’t so big. Her two-bedroom house is approximately 1,200 square feet. Accordingly, the new HVAC unit should be at the lower end of the cost spectrum. Considering that she lives alone in her home, I’d like to see if she would be willing to get a window unit until we can figure out how to pay for a new heating and cooling system. Even though her father will offer to cover the costs, Cassie will insist on paying him back. As a temporary solution, I will ask her to consider installing an air conditioner in the window of her house, as well as ceiling fans in the other rooms. Cassie will have some time to decide which option will work best for her.
