I’ve always been told that older homes need more work, but i’ve always known this but I’ve shrugged off the idea that it’s true.
When I was buying my house my parents thought it was a terrible idea, but all of the houses that my good friend and I moved into when my good friend and I were younger were always brand new.
My parents didn’t want to do much renovating or replacing device or appliances. Once I was in the buying process they would tell me, you’re going to regret it! Now that I have been in my house for six months now I have done a lot of renovating. To be even-handed it has been terrible but I love the way my house looks now, but since most of my house is completed, I want to start redoing my basement. My basement is pretty giant and I know it has a lot of potential. Since the house is older, there is no heating or cooling down there. There are a few vents but I don’t know any air comes out of them. I have been told that the best type of heating and cooling system that I should use is a mini split heat pump in my basement. This is because I should keep the basement and house air separate from each other. I do want to get a second opinion though so I will be contacting my local Heating and Air Conditioning provider to see what option is best. I’m hoping that whatever option I choose it won’t be a hassle or cost me a lot of money.
