My partner and I move a lot with her work. While looking for houses to rent in a new town, the first thing I look for is central HVAC system. I grew up with space heaters and window A/C units, and the first place my partner and I rented had space heaters and a window A/C unit. After that we were introduced to central HVAC. We will never go back. Gone are the mornings of sleeping on the floor in the living room in the summer in order to stay cool near the A/C. We will never huddle around a space heaters again just trying to stay warm. With an HVAC system, the whole house stays cool when the A/C is on and hot when the furnace is on. There is little to no temperature gradient and no need to stand next to the vents in order to get the comfortable air. That is why a central HVAC system is a must from now on for any house that we rent. All this moving around helps the two of us know what we do and don’t want when we are finally ready to settle down and buy our own house. Every house has its up and down sides. We make a mental note of things we do and do not like about each house. When we do buy our own home, it is going to have to be perfect. It is also going to have to have a nice and quiet HVAC system, obviously.
