Living abroad for so long entirely changed so much about how I look at our life.
When you come from such abundance as I did, you don’t realize that this isn’t the case most everywhere. I’m here to tell you that we take far too several things totally for granted in this country. Residential HVAC is a fantastic example. I spent the last 20 years living in developing countries where any sort of modern HVAC technology was pretty rare. Many of the government building had central air conditioning in addition to there were some affluent people who also had HVAC. Other than that, HVAC cooling just wasn’t something a woman could just expect. Far from it actually. Just having access to a fan was something that would end up being such a bonus for me. But like all human beings, we all have the ability to evolve to a given situation. It didn’t take myself and others too long to get actemperatured to living without residential HVAC. Since returning, I have had more difficulty getting accustomed to all the abundance in this country. I’m still choosing to live simply though. I just bought a small more than one home office location that is perfect for our fiance in addition to our dogs. Prior to moving in, we had to update the heating in addition to cooling. The HVAC company recommended we go with a ductless heat pump. I had never seen 1 so was just completely amazed by how much HVAC power was packed in such a small package. Our house has a pair of ductless heat pumps in addition to we are super ecstatic to have residential HVAC for the first time in a couple of decades.
