I’m so thankful that every one of us made the choice to go through with the idea to trade the gas furnace for the heat pump and move south.
This had been the idea for a long time, then my wifey and I were even looking at properties down here years before I retired.
But as with any big life change, there can be some cold feet involved. That was absolutely the case when my wifey and I finally retired; We knew that was going to be a sizable effort to get the lake house in fantastic enough shape to get it on the market. That meant substitutes to the residential Heating and A/C equipment along with a near total home office renovation. Initially, every one of us absolutely dragged our feet because every one of us just did not want to get into all of that! Plus once every one of us sold the house, there absolutely was no turning back for our idea to move to the south. Thankfully, things just started falling into arena and every one of us ended up getting all those renovations done and then the lake house sold almost immediately. We made so much money off of that lake house that we’re still sort of shocked, and at that point, there absolutely was no turning back and I’m cheerful every one of us followed through. I’m so thankful to be spending this Winter time in short sleeves with my face in the sun. There’s no more snow, ice or gas furnace where every one of us live. I do not believe the heat pump is even kicked on once to knock the chill out of the house. I’m easily content with our decision to move down here and I’ll trade a gas furnace for a heat pump every time.
