I was absolutely certain that I was going to need a brand new heating system at the cottage. My wife and I had inherited the place from her grandparents and found that it was not in the best shape. The place itself was still valuable, and obviously it held a personal connection for my wife, so we decided to start fixing it up. Her and I both enjoy the beach there, and we knew we would get use out of it once it was updated and comfortable. Immediately we ripped down the old wallpaper, set to work restoring the floors, and hired an HVAC specialist to come out and look at the heating system. There was no cooling system there at the time. Everything was so neglected since the cottage hadn’t been used regularly in years and my wife’s grandparents had become too old to continue caring for it properly. We found quite a few animal nests in there. It was almost a gut job. However, we were surprised to find that the heating system was in fact in pretty good shape. While the HVAC guy was out, we decided to get a quote for putting in an A/C system in the house. Central air conditioning after being at the beach all day long would probably be ideal. There were a few obstacles that he found. The quote was a bit higher than I was expecting, but overall the comfort and convenience of having central A/C was too great an advantage to ignore. In the end, we did end up getting an A/C system installed, however we found a better price from another company in the area.
