A time when the type of heating equipment became a deciding factor between similar apartments

Jeanne still lived with my parents two years after she had graduated and secured a job. This is because my parents’ house was so close to her workplace it would not make any economic sense to rent an apartment, plus my parents loved having their lastborn around. After a year of working for the company, they were going to transfer her to a different town. She asked me to go apartment hunting with her. The two apartments were almost similar in design and square footage, the main difference was in the heating technology that they used. The first one had a furnace as the main heating device. The other one had a geo heat pump as the primary source of heating and cooling. I didn’t even know it was possible to find a commercial apartment that had geothermal heating equipment. If any heating repair was needed all one had to do was call the building’s manager and they would contact their preferred home services company and get an HVAC tech to fix the issue. The same applies to heating maintenance and other services that may be needed. All this was catered for in the annual amenities fee for both apartments. This was the best part about apartments, one did not have to worry about which heating dealer to call or if you will be in when the HVAC serviceman comes to your home. The ductwork or duct sealing is not among your worries when you live in an apartment. I on the other hand was thinking about buying a digital thermostat that I term as the most user-friendly gadget in the heating industry. All I had to do was order it from the local heating dealer.
