As a first-time homeowner, many things came as a surprise for me.
I never knew how many important details homeowners have to know about the property they get.
Even where I lived was crucial, especially regarding home insurance. But, I was lucky my aunt was a realtor willing to help me out. She helped me learn about the best places to purchase a house. In addition, she ensured the house I got was well built, had been upgraded, and came with important systems like air conditioning. The one I got checked all the boxes except for the air conditioning. While the house was older, it was so well kept by the sellers. But, they had an old heat pump that was still serving the house. They’d had it for a decade-plus and still felt it could run for a few more. But, I saw it fit to change the air conditioning to an HVAC system. After speaking to an AC expert about the right air conditioning for my new home, this is. The AC expert agreed that starting with a new HVAC system was better. But, he first had to come to assess the size of the house before picking out the correct HVAC system. Up to that time, I never knew HVAC systems came in different sizes. I thought it was a one size fits all situation regarding the air conditioning units. But, the AC expert educated me that air conditioners came in different sizes depending on the square footage of the house. That was why it was important for him to first measure the house before picking the HVAC system to install in it.
