Your first home is never the dream home. The home is usually too small, slightly run down and the things inside are the best. My home was the right size but was just super old. All the walls were falling down, the floors had to be totally redone and the appliances were super outdated. The first thing I wanted to replace was the old boiler system in the basement. The boiler was larger than any fridge I had seen. It also was coated in rust, grime and was all dented. I figured the heating equipment would hardly work for such a large house. But, with walls coming down and floors coming up, I had bigger fish to fry. I ended up leaving the boiler the whole summer and then gave it a try in the winter. That was the best choice I have ever made. The boiler worked like a dream. The house is two floors and is quite long. Even with this, the boiler could provide heating to the entire home. It was amazing how fast the boiler could work. In a matter of minutes, the whole home was the ideal temperature. I ended up leaving the boiler system in my basement for years. Yes, it was huge and ugly. But the device provide adequate heating. When the boiler finally died 10 years later, I was super sad to see it go. I could have gotten any kind of heating system for the home. But, I knew without a doubt that using a boiler system is the way to go.
