This time, I’m coming back for good so it should be a very interesting transition.
I was born and raised in the South and with all that HVAC cooling.
But I’ve spent my adult life abroad. Working for an international agency which helps developing economies is what I’ve done all of my career. I work on the sustainable economy side of that agency. It’s been exciting work but it is also been challenging as well. Normally, I don’t come home but maybe once a year and then it’s just a see my parents. Regions I work in are normally hot and humid wants. Residential HVAC really is not all that common. As a matter of fact, I never had an apartment that had what we we consider residential HVAC. Most of the time I didn’t have anything but a fan or two. However, I was lucky enough to get one apartment that had evaporative cooling. But again, that was one apartment over nearly 20 years. These days, I’m home for good and have just bought my first house. It’s a small bungalow with just two bedrooms but it’s perfect size for me. Instead of the central air conditioning I chose to go with ductless heat pumps. They’re more efficient and that meant that I didn’t have to replace the ductwork in my little house. I’m still not used to living in in this country and it may take me a while. But I am starting to enjoy residential HVAC comfort again. It’s nice to come home to a house that has quality heating and air. But I’m still trying to get my head around all the changes that I see evidence of with every passing day.
