When I made the decision that I was going to buy a home, I knew exactly how I wanted it. I didn’t want to buy a home that had been lived in before. I wanted to have a home built to my specifications and I planned on designing it. I had spent years living in apartments and not owning anything. I spent a couple of years renting a house. I loved having the air conditioning down low and I would keep it that way for weeks at a time. I didn’t like needing to pay the energy bill or the fact that I couldn’t do any repairs. With my own home, I could plan ahead for how much insulation I wanted in my home. I wanted to know where the air vents were going to be put so I could plan how to put my furniture. I wanted to know that when I turned on my air conditioner, I was keeping the cool air in and the heat outside. I knew that if I had all of the plans set up, I would be able to keep the thermostat up higher and still enjoy having the coolness of the air conditioner because I wouldn’t be cooling the outside. I also know that if all of the designs are right, I will be saving money on my energy bills. I will finally have a home of my own and an air conditioning system that I can run how I like and will function efficiently. I will never again be complaining about apartments and rented homes.
