I was sort of constantly under the impression that once the two of us retired, it was off to the sunshine & enjoyable weather of the south.
I mean this had been the stated goal for decades.
Shoot, our husbandy & I had even chosen a region where the two of us wanted to retire. I was all ready to get our Heating & A/C cooling on. But then there were grandbabies & that changed everything. Our child married a local guy. They went to rival highschools however met in school of all things. They decided to beginning their life together not 20 minutes away from us. Even then, I was ready to trade the gas furnace for the heat pump once I turned in our retirement papers. But then our child had the various most appealing daughters there have ever been. The idea of trading the heating for the cooling suddenly wasn’t as easy a option as it had been. So the two of us chose to build a smaller condo here & stay put. And if our option of heating & cooling component doesn’t say we’re staying, I don’t know what does. Every one of us chose to go with a geothermal heat pump. These heating & cooling systems are luxurious however they are the most efficient, cost saving Heating & A/C units you can find. I wasn’t so sure that a geo heat pump would kneel 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 & 60 degrees. Plus, this heating & cooling component will be around undoubtedly after we’re gone. That’s how long this idea lasts. So the two of us are here to stay.
