When we ended up with the empty nest, we didn’t get the syndrome, we just decided it was time to downgrade. We didn’t need a four bedroom home any long. I didn’t need to spend all of money on heating or cooling that huge house, either. We wanted to be able to do things when we retire, and not be tied to a house. We found this little condo that we both absolutely loved. It had a small yard that was perfect for a garden. We have always had central heating and air conditioning, and that was something we weren’t ready to downsize on. The condo didn’t have either a furnace or an air conditioning system. We knew that to put in central HVAC, we would have to rip out walls, but that was something we wanted to put more money into. There wasn’t enough space to put in a central HVAC and the ductwork. We started talking about a ductless mini split HVAC system. There is a small unit that is inside and a unit that is outside. The heating and air conditioning is forced through hoses that are inside the unit and it forces the air into the house. We only needed to have a couple holes drilled. It is a full heating and air conditioning system, but it takes up very little space. After looking at all of the information, we decided that was the way we wanted to go. We sold our large house and bought the much smaller condo, then we installed the mini split HVAC system.
