It was simply self-explanatory taking early retirement and getting out of the zone controlled heating, ventilation as well as A/C of my corporate office… Then okay, maybe self-explanatory is overstating it a bit; the retirement package offered couldn’t be beat! Staying around another 8 or 9 years would get me maybe 4 percent more for my trouble.
So I finally took the offer and cleared out my office that even had its own temperature control.
The fact of the matter is that 57 is awfully young to just call it quits… But plus, I just really didn’t want to be that guy who went to lake beach house after retirement and stuck his feet up in the central cooling system for the rest of his life, then I had seen this happen to some of my colleagues and even to my own father to some extent. I really wanted to stay active and follow my passions while also earning a living. So getting into the rental property game was swiftly really too appealing once I was able to retire at 57; then my empathetic husband and I had regularly sort of enjoyed the renovations in each lake beach house my buddy and I lived in. So my buddy and I took our talents to smaller starter homes that were primarily just more than one living room however needed work. My pal and I were able to do most of the renovations except for things like the heating and cooling equipment. Stuff like that my buddy and I left to the heating, ventilation as well as A/C professionals; but my buddy and I got surprised on one of our first properties when my buddy and I didn’t realize the ductwork was also shot. So that meant that my buddy and I were going to incur a whole lot more cost. But the heating, ventilation as well as A/C supplier really saved us by suggesting that my buddy and I use 3 ductless heat pumps instead. I have to suggest that my buddy and I may go with ductless heat pumps in the rest of our rental properties because it has worked out so well.
