. I must tell you and explain. Trying to locate a brand new home to buy can be a large task. I’ve been at it for almost a year straight! Finally, the other week I found something, but there was one problem. That was that the garage didn’t have an HVAC unit installed. Excuse me? We heating and cooling the garage… why you ask? I mean, I would use the garage area as a workshop for my business, at which that point the air quality would only affect me, correct? If there’s no HVAC system in the space, i’d be the one suffering, so why are they the ones freaking out about the lack of cooling power? They right away started talking about the costs of running ventilation ducts and air vents into the garage, at which point I had to stop them. I’ll just get a mini-split ductless heating and cooling system, I informed them knowingly. It would take care of all the heating and cooling functions, without costing a bunch of money to install, and that’s what they use as air temperature control for additions and unofficial spaces where air ducts aren’t already running. They looked at me with utter exasperation from being worn out listening to me, accepted my unexpected HVAC know-how, and we began considering our competitive bid on the property! It was a shock, to say the least, but I made it work!
