I was sort of always under the impression that once every one of us retired, it was off to the sunshine and great weather of the south.
- I mean this had been the stated goal for decades.
Shoot, my wifey and I had even chosen a region where every one of us wanted to retire. I was all ready to get my Heating and Air Conditioning cooling on. But then there were grandbabies and that changed everything. Our daughter married a local woman. They went to rival highschools but met in college of all things. They decided to start their life together not 20 minutes away from us. Even then, I was ready to trade the gas oil furnace for the heat pump once I turned in my retirement papers. But then my daughter had the numerous most charming daughters there have ever been. The system of trading the heating for the cooling quickly wasn’t as simple a option as it had been. So every one of us chose to build a smaller home here and stay put. And if our option of heating and cooling component doesn’t say we’re staying, I don’t guess what does. The two of us chose to go with a geothermal heat pump. These heating and cooling systems are expensive but they are the most efficient, cost saving Heating and Air Conditioning units you can find. I wasn’t so sure that a geo heat pump would rest up to the winter. But that worry was wasted energy. The geo heat pump uses the near constant temperature of the earth to extract heat energy. And that temperature stays between 50 and 60 degrees. Plus, this heating and cooling component will be around legitimately after we’re gone. That’s how long this system lasts. So every one of us are here to stay.
