For the longest time I kept praying for the option to someday be a homeowner. Back then I was five years into renting by myself after leaving university and getting a studio with a single room for the first time. Renting seems a lot more straightforward if you can stomach the money that you waste in the process. As long as your landlord follows renting laws, you have a lady to call when something is wrong with your unit and that gives you some degree of recourse to allow another party to deal with new home related emergencies. I walked into new home ownership being severely ignorant, especially being in a subdivision with a homeowner’s association. You have to follow rules about outdoor aesthetics that sometimes go considerably far in their seeming overreach, but you don’t have a option but to follow their rules. I wanted to get a zone controlled heating and cooling proposal by putting ductless mini splits in all of the zones throughout my house. However, I was informed that the condensers used for ductless mini splits were banned and I was not permitted to use anything other than a traditional split style air conditioning proposal for my house. I couldn’t use window a/cs either. When I l gained about the ductless mini split rule, I was severely miserable. The condensers for ductless mini splits are often smaller than traditional split style condenser units. So if you’re going to compare them both, sometimes the ductless mini split condensers look “better,” although I accept that is simply a subjective opinion.
