I was surprised to hear that my 15-year-old air conditioner was in good shape

I bought this house when I was just 25 years old and spent the following 10 years paying off the mortgage. Some might say that I did it in record time, but it wasn’t an expensive house and I had few other living expenses being a bachelor for all of this time. Ideally, I would have paid off the loan faster if I could have. That was my plan, as I knew that the interest would build and become a formidable expense before long. Once the mortgage was finally paid off, I started to think about various improvements I could make to the house. First I paid to have a wooden deck for me in the backyard so I could have barbecues with my friends and work colleagues. And who knows, it’s possible that someday I might be ready to settle down and have a family with someone. A deck in the backyard is a good investment for those sorts of things. Most importantly though, I needed to make serious upgrades to the central heating and cooling system. The air conditioner that came with the house was old and the furnace had leaky ductwork. I decided to rip out the fan-forced furnace and replace it with radiant heated flooring instead, which was an expensive but phenomenal choice once it was finally installed. While I was raving over my new heated floors, I decided to invest in a higher SEER air conditioner with the same company that installed my new heating system. They told me that my old air conditioner was in good condition despite being 15 years old.
