My wife had the notion it was a bit too much money when I explained about having a ductless HVAC system installed in the house.
I told her we would not need to worry about having the air conditioning every year.
We would not need to be distraught if we forgot to have the HVAC heating cleaned. There would be no added dust because we hadn’t cleaned the ducttoil in years. The best thing about having the ductless HVAC system was that we could put our furniture anywhere we wanted, and not worry about blocking any air vents. She still scoffed at the cost of the ductless HVAC system and having it installed. My wife liked that it took up little space and the entire replacement was done in one day, plus with little dirt or upset. When I first mentioned the ductless HVAC system, she agreed it would be good for our home. We haven’t had an enormous house since we downsized about 2 years ago. It would not take nearly as much to heat and cool this beach house as it did the previous house. The only downside was having half the living space. The ductless HVAC system was going to give us some space because we would not have the air vents to contend with. Once the heat from the ductless HVAC system started, we knew we made the right decision. We couldn’t remember there ever being such warmth in a beach house without the drafts freezing spots. If we had to do it all over again, the only thing we would change is having ductless HVAC in our old house. We may not have moved.
