More and more people rent their holiday homes on Airbnb for additional income, I joined this new trend.
I put up our holiday home to rent it out to travelers.
It was our first time renting it out, and I got a buyer as soon as I put up the home online. I had yet to assume it through as I felt the home needed more preparation. A day before the guest arrived, I called the heating and air conditioning company and planned for heating and air conditioning repair on the unit as early as possible, and the heating and air conditioning repairman informed me that the heat pump had some concerns, some brought by the dirty furnace filter, but when not staying full-time or for the better area of the year, one must remember particular things, and my only prayer was that the furnace/heater repair would not be fancy. I needed the heating and air conditioning systems at their best to help with indoor comfort since guests were coming, and I wanted them to have a nice experience so that we could attract more business. When the heating and air conditioning professional gave me the cost of the entire heat pump service, I was relieved, not that it came cheap but because it did not involve new parts other than the filter. It could have been worse. The issue with the gas furnace taught me more about heating and what I would do as a homeowner to ensure that the heating and air conditioning device was running optimally. At the end of that day, the place had quality heating, was sparkling clean, and was ready to receive guests. I loved everything I had done with the home and hoped the guests would like it too.
