Granted, this other HVAC system downstairs is not part of the HVAC system in the rest of the house, but they’re almost identical machines
I spent too many years fantasizing about the perfect house instead of making the most out of what I already had. It isn’t nearly as difficult to afford home renovations if you do them gradually over long periods of time. Planning one large renovation project each year leaves enough time in between to save the necessary money to afford the supplies. Thankfully I have experience in construction and rarely need outside help with home remodeling. My wife loves watching me get to work on the weekends with all of these various projects, but I enjoy it too. My job has me sitting behind a computer all day long for five days each week, so it feels like a comforting release to spend a few hours laboring with a tool belt around my waist. After replacing the roof, I asked my wife what we should spend money on next. For a while we discussed adding climate control to the basement so we can put a guest suite down there with a miniature kitchen. Since all of our parents are getting up there in age, it’s important to have guest living accommodations in this house of ours. On top of that, climate control in the basement will remove the need for using a dehumidifier in the summers to keep the moisture levels at a reasonable threshold. I decided to use a basic split style HVAC system because it includes an electric furnace coil inside of the air handler. This removes the extra cost of a separate heating system for the basement. Granted, this other HVAC system downstairs is not part of the HVAC system in the rest of the house, but they’re almost identical machines. Of course the ductwork is a lot different, but the condensers and air handlers are from the same HVAC manufacturer.
