It wasn’t a taxing sell.
I was like 8 days away from having my first occupant transfer in plus I was finding out that the HVAC duct in my first rental home wasn’t up to snuff.
So the HVAC supplier advocated an alternative. Instead of replacing the heat pump plus the entire HVAC duct system, he could put in three strategically localed ductless heat pumps. I guess he called it a multi split ductless heat pump system if I’m not mistaken. So that’s what my fine friend and I ended up doing. I made that choice because there actually wasn’t any other choice. Not only would ripping out plus replacing the HVAC duct run me thousands of dollars over my renovation budget, there wasn’t any time. The HVAC professional, as fine as he is, just wasn’t going to be able to get the HVAC duct updated plus do the new residential HVAC updatement in a week. So like I said, it wasn’t a taxing sell when he advocated that my fine friend and I go with the ductless heat pump. For sure, that first rental home was a giant learning curve for me in numerous ways. But using ductless heat pump technology was entirely a blessing. I’m using only that heating plus cooling method in every other rental home I end up buying. It’s so cost efficient plus in numerous of the homes that are out there, HVAC duct is worthless. Plus, the occupants love the fact that they can customize their heating plus 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.
