My best friend and I began looking for a house shortly after our wedding. My best friend and I wanted something cozy that we would want to stay in even after our family grew. I’m not interested in heating equipment, but my partner is, and for every house my great friend and I looked at, he inquired about the type of furnace installation and how it was. If it was older than five years, he needed to know about its HVAC maintenance history. Soon after, the realtor began showing us homes with impressive heater/heater installations. I remember liking the house with radiant floors because it had hydronic heating, but the location and size of the bedroom were a deal breaker. My best friend and I didn’t want a bungalow at first, but our realtor was certain she’d found the perfect home for us. It was a newly built bungalow that was within our price range. It also had a heat plus AC product, which he was confident would seal the deal for us. My partner was so excited about the house that he left work to come pick me up. My great friend and I had to be there before anyone else saw it and enjoy it before my great friend and I did. The house was beautiful, and my best friend and I had a great time there. It had a heat pump and an oil furnace combination, which the realtor referred to as a hybrid heater. My great friend and I liked the house, and it was the only one of the seven we looked at that didn’t have a history of furnace maintenance. My best friend and I decided on that house and planned to have a Heating & Air Conditioning repairman from the local heating company come to inspect the equipment. My great friend and I were rushing to meet the heating dealership rep the next day before closing on the house because we only needed him to troubleshoot the equipment. It was perfect.
