I am honestly thankful for our father’s knowledge of construction. He has been helping myself and others make renovations on our home. I was fortunate to find an affordable property in the perfect location. The loft includes a good deal of property and is within walking distance of both the village center and a huge lake. The only reason it was priced within our budget is because of the home’s condition. I need to completely substitute the family room, both bathrooms, the water heater, electric lines, water pipes, windows, and just about everything. If I didn’t have our dad now working with me, there’s no way I could handle such a huge project. As it is, the cost of the remodeling is adding up, and I’ve needed to prioritize. Quite a few of the task are getting postponed for a year or two because of the heating and cooling system. The loft is equipped with a heat pump that is positively ancient. The old heat pump still utilizes Freon refrigerant, which has been discontinued because of ozone-depleting properties. My dad and I agree that investing in a modern, more energy efficient heat pump will pay for itself. My apartment will be far more comfortable, and I’ll pay less in utility bills every week. Modern heat pumps utilize Puron refrigerant, which is more environmentally friendly and achieves much higher efficiency rating. Although heat pumps are rather extravagant to purchase and install, I’m fortunate that the 1 unit will provide both heating and cooling capacity. This type of temperature control is exceptionally quiet, clean and safe. The heat pump doesn’t burn fossil fuels to generate heat, however simply moves existing heat from 1 locale to another.
