I’ve been living in my beach house for 5 years and I love it.
- There’s just something great when you look out the window and see the ocean right there.
My kids also have loads of fun playing and running around in the sun. We do experience challenging times when there are tropical storms, or when it gets too hot in summer. But, I would never give this up to live anywhere else in the world. When I purchased the house, it came with a functional HVAC system. The previous owner had just installed the system 3 years back so there was no need for an upgrade. I opted to keep using the HVAC system until a time came to replace it. That time for a new system was last summer when we had the worst heat wave ever. The HVAC cooling system failed 3 times and I had to pay for repairs each time there was an issue. It was during the third HVAC repair that the HVAC technician advised me to think about upgrading the HVAC unit. She said the unit wasn’t right for such a hot and humid environment. And I should have been thinking about better cooling systems like heat pumps. I’d heard about heat pumps before, but I never had any interest in this cooling system. The HVAC technician informed me about their website’s blog section that had loads of information about heat pumps. I took a few days when I had the time to read up on heat pumps and was happy with what I read. The HVAC technician had been right about this being the perfect cooling system for my beach house.
