It became pretty clear that the aged heating and A/C equipment would have to go in favor of better technology and efficiency
It’s strenuous for me to get my head around the fact that we are selling our family home. But, I think it makes the most sense. Given the fact that all our kids are now off living their lives, this house just doesn’t make much sense. The size and the way it’s laid out is honestly meant for a family to occupy. It’s the quintessential family home with a wing for the children’s room, a large kitchen and a charming master suite. It has constantly been so comfortable with the heating and A/C system we’ve had. While a bit long in the tooth, that HVAC system is still getting the job done for us. However, keeping up with the house puts a lot of work on both my wife and I. The two of us wanted to downsize. So, we put our house on the market. The realtor told us one afternoon one of the things she saw in the house that needed a replacement to fetch the best price, one of those things was to replace the heating and A/C unit. While I was sort of onboard with many of her suggestions, this single hit me a bit sideways. But, I kept that to myself. The notion of getting rid of something that was still actually working, and working well, was just nonsensical to me. However, after doing a bit of research and seeing the comps in this area, I backed up on my position. It became pretty clear that the aged heating and A/C equipment would have to go in favor of better technology and efficiency. Once we got that done and a few other replacements, it didn’t take long to find a buyer who would make it a family home once again.
