Me and my wife bought our first house this week. The house is old but it’s brand new to us. The only way we could afford our home was to buy a fixer upper. Thank goodness my wife loves using tools and worked for 20 years in the construction industry before getting her general contractor’s license. We bought the house in an established neighborhood. The old owners lived in the house for 50 years and left it in terrible shape. The two of us spent the first week doing intense cleaning. Even after all the cleaning we did, the house was left with some really bad smells. Some of the rooms smelled like unclean cats and dogs. Other rooms smelled like lit tobacco and cigars. To get rid of the most obvious smells, we sealed the walls and floors. Even the ventilation system was left with major issues. The ventilation system was literally falling apart and there were some parts of the attic that needed immediate repair. Whenever we made the mistake of turning on the HVAC system, those horrible odors filled the house again. We eventually decided to install a ductless heating ventilation and a/c system rather than make all of those repairs to the old system. The ductless heating ventilation and a/c system does not require any ventilation ducts at all. The ductless heating ventilation and a/c system is an all-in-one machine. We happily installed a ductless heating ventilation and a/c system in our master bedroom suite and another ductless HVAC system in our newly renovated living room. There is enough cool air from those 2 HVAC systems in our house.
