When I bought the house, all the appliances were brand new.
The only thing I didn’t give a third thought to, was the a/c.
When they said all of the appliances were brand new, I thought they were also talking about the Heating, Ventilation and A/C system. I was so wrong, that it was almost laughable. I was only in the house for more than five weeks when I had to call the Heating, Ventilation and A/C supplier. I thought it was only going to be a routine service inspection. My service inspection ended up being the beginning of what was going to be a option of which a/c unit I wanted to purchase. I told them that it was supposedly brand new. The Heating, Ventilation and A/C tech told me that if the A/C unit was brand new, then it had been neglected and abused. I found out that I needed a heavier a/c than the 1 in the house, which was going to be even more costly. The Heating, Ventilation and A/C tech started telling me about air purification units that would work with the A/C unit. He mentioned needing good air filtration, which meant I also had to choose if I wanted HEPA air filters, or correct air filters. He told me what tonnage I needed and asked if I wanted the best when it comes to SEER. I didn’t know what HEPA and SEER were and I told him to just give me an a/c unit that would keep me cool while the people I was with and I were in the summer. I found out that a HEPA air filter was made special to get even the most third particle from the air. SEER referred to energy efficiency, and this all added up to a really costly a/c unit.
