I bought a giant, old house in Cocoa, FL, however the section is absolutely gorgeous, and I was desperate to live there, but i enjoy the sunshine, red skies and palm trees.
The house was within our price range because it needs some major work.
There was definitely a leaky roof at a single time and there’s evidence of water injure to the ceilings, walls and some of the floors. The windows are old and the walls lack insulation. The wiring and plumbing need to be upgraded. The appliances are ancient, the bedroom ugly and there’s a musty smell in a single of the bathrooms, however when I first moved in, our biggest complaint was temperature control. The weather in Cocoa is tepid and humid. The temperature frequently soars into the nineties and seldom drops below fifty. While the house is outfitted with central cooling system, the plan is old and not overly effective. There have been renovations over the years that have left some rooms with insufficient supply and return registers. I could not sleep at night because the master bedroom was constantly boiling and sticky. I tried running box fans, but they didn’t really help. I was reluctant to invest in window a/cs that would look hideous. I finally consulted with a licensed Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C worker who advocated a ductless chop system. The ductless a/c wasn’t over expensive and installed in a single day without causing any mess. There is a small outdoor compressor that connects to more than five compact indoor air handlers. The indoor units are mounted up high on the wall and each feature an independent thermostat for zone control. The ductless a/c is super powerful, lovelyly quiet and exceptionally energy efficient.
