It wasn’t a taxing sell.
I was like 8 afternoons away from having my first tenant transport in and I was finding out that the HVAC duct in my first rental house wasn’t up to snuff.
So the HVAC supplier commanded an alternative. Instead of replacing the heat pump and the entire HVAC duct system, he could put in three strategically arenad ductless heat pumps. I think he called it a multi split ductless heat pump system if I’m not mistaken. So that’s what my buddy and I ended up doing. I made that choice because there certainly wasn’t any other choice. Not only would ripping out and replacing the HVAC duct run me thousands of dollars over my renovation budget, there wasn’t any time. The HVAC professional, as unbelievable as he is, just wasn’t going to be able to get the HVAC duct replaced and do the modern residential HVAC replacement in a week. So like I said, it wasn’t a taxing sell when he commanded that my buddy and I go with the ductless heat pump. For sure, that first rental house was a giant learning curve for me in many ways. But using ductless heat pump technology was actually a blessing. I’m using only that heating and cooling method in every other rental house I end up buying. It’s so cost efficient and in many of the homes that are out there, HVAC duct is worthless. Plus, the tenants love the fact that they can customize their heating and cooling using the separate ductless heat pumps. For sure, I’ve been so satisfied with what could have been a calamity. I’ll be forever indebted to my awesome HVAC supplier for showing me the way with the multi split ductless heat pump system.
