When my great aunt passed away I was completely beside myself.

We always had a good relationship and kept in touch even when we lived on opposite sides of the country.

When I was much younger, I spent many Summers with my great-aunt at her Victorian home. It was such a beautiful house and I truly enjoyed spending my youth there. I was always getting into trouble, exploring the attic and crawl space and running around the large yard. I would say my best childhood memories were formed in that house with my great aunt. She must have realized this, because when she passed away the house was left in my name. I was so beside myself with gratitude and emotion, I swore that I would never change a single thing in the old Victorian home. Well, I have to take that statement back. Last week, I finally had a professional Heating and Cooling technician arrived at the property to do an inspection on the existing boiler and retrofitted air conditioning system. I knew that the HVAC system wasn’t in tip-top shape, because the indoor air felt extremely uneven, hot and cold, and drafty. It was difficult to keep the indoor air temperature steady throughout the rooms. I was spending a pretty penny on my energy bills each month because of the HVAC and efficiencies. When the ventilation specialists took a look around the house, he quickly found the problem. The existing air ducts were sagging, full of holes, and filled with animal debris. I know I said I wouldn’t change anything in the house, but I have to fully replace and reinstall the air ducts immediately.
