Everyday I wake up, I am amazed at how much my life has changed. I used to have so many health problems like an aching jaw, high blood pressure, and even migraines, all of it from the stress of life. Getting by in this day and age is not easy, and for some of us it just gets harder everyday. Well, about three years ago I decided that the rat race just wasn’t worth it anymore. I was losing sleep and I was constantly overworked and underpaid, and for what? I didn’t even love my job; I just needed it to get by and it’s the highest paying thing I can do. Then I found out about off grid life, which is where I’ve been ever since. I saved up enough till I bought my houseboat and quit my job. Now I have no rent, no utility bills, and no more worries. And I live in total comfort thanks to my HVAC system. This old houseboat has modern upgrades, like a top of the line heat pump. This ductless mini split is able to provide both heating and cooling to the whole houseboat, and without putting off any VOCs, so it’s the safest option for the space. Not only that, but it runs off of the solar panels on my roof which power the house through a solar battery. The latest heat pumps can work effectively down to 17 degrees, so even when it’s 30 degrees out I am perfectly warm thanks to my central heater.
