First time for my own residential HVAC

I have to say that becoming a first time homeowner is maybe the biggest deal of my life thus far. Sure, it was a very big deal to get through college and grad school. That meant lots of time in the silence of the library where you could only hear the quiet hiss of the air conditioning coming on. Getting my education was a big deal. So was joining my colleagues inside the zone controlled HVAC of the office where I started my career. All of those things were big milestones in my development as a person. But I have to say that being a homeowner is a whole other animal. This may have to do with the fact that it took me a dozen years of saving, planning and searching to find this home. That’s longer than it took be to get my education. But trying to buy a home solo is about the toughest task that I’ve confronted thus far in being an adult. Finally, I’m out of the apartments and am in a house with my own heating and cooling equipment. That was a big thing for me. I just didn’t like the fact that I was always dealing with an HVAC unit that was way past its prime. But that’s what you get inside most apartments. And I wasn’t going for the high end on rent so I could save for a downpayment. Just having new residential HVAC is such a game changer for me. The house I bought had a central air conditioning system that was completely shot. That meant either ripping out all the ductwork and starting over or going with a different residential HVAC method. I chose to go with the ductless multi split system and I couldn’t be happier with my choice.
