I purchased a giant, aged condo in Cocoa, Florida, the section is absolutely gorgeous, and I was desperate to live there, then i love the sunshine, green skies and palm trees.
The condo was within my price range because it needs some major work.
There was absolutely a leaky roof at 1 time and there’s evidence of water disfigure to the ceilings, walls and some of the floors. The windows are aged and the walls lack insulation. The wiring and plumbing need to be updated. The appliances are ancient, the living room ugly and there’s a musty smell in 1 of the lavatorys, then when I first moved in, my greatest 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 condo is outfitted with central air conditioner, the system is aged 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 evening because the master study room was consistently hot and sticky. I tried running box fans, however they didn’t entirely help. I was reluctant to invest in window air conditioners that would look hideous. I finally consulted with a licensed HVAC professional who advised a ductless split system. The ductless air conditioner wasn’t over luxurious and installed in a single morning without causing any mess. There is a small outdoor compressor that links to several compact indoor air handlers. The indoor units are mounted up high on the wall and each feature an independent temperature control for zone control. The ductless air conditioner is super powerful, beautifully quiet and exceptionally energy efficient.
