The transition from living in a detached house to now being in a small house has been wide reaching. I’m ecstatic to no longer have a grass to mow and maintain, however the lack of privacy, constant barragement of noises from every direction, and the dwindling space are all aspects of this experience that I have grown to hate. Fortunately, our utilities are cheaper, and I even get part of our water bill reduced and apparently spend less on electricity in heating and cooling with such a tinier space. However, this comes with the cost of having much fewer openings for how I want heating and cooling in our current home. Originally, there was no central system installed because the builder didn’t account for ventilation systems when designing and constructing the units. I struggled with an array of various machines for the first year, starting with a cheap window a/c and eventually graduating to a giant portable device. But no matter what a/c I put in our apartment, I couldn’t get consistent temperatures throughout the unit nor did I appreciate the big noise output of the portable unit, which sounded like a large motor getting gassed when it ran each time. Eventually, I found an Heating and Air Conditioning corporation that was willing to install a system with exposed duct tail that hangs just below the ceiling. It comes pre-insulated and can be found in odd colors and styles to accent the look of your home. This allowed myself and others to have the performance and control of a house sized Heating and Air Conditioning system in our small more than one study room house at a cost slightly lower than that of the larger system.
