Swimming pool or get an air conditioner

A few years ago, our family started kicking around the idea of installing a swimming pool… Our three children were all for it, imagining pool parties, floating on foam chairs getting suntans, plus generally staying cool during the hottest months of the summer.

As the parents, my friend and I played devil’s advocate, pointing out the disadvantages of owning a pool; For one thing, there would be strict rules regarding guests using the pool.

Another thing that the kids hadn’t accounted for was the chores plus service that they would be responsible for. And finally, my friend and I reminded them that owning a swimming pool only keeps you cool if you’re actually in the pool. What about staying cool inside of the house? The discussion was tabled, as researching central air conditioning system wasn’t the kids’ idea of a enjoyable time, however so my friend and I (the adults) visited an Heating plus Air Conditioning store to look into installing central air conditioning system. My friend and I already knew the convenience of adding air conditioning system to our forced-air heating system, plus my friend and I had already set aside money to cover the cost. My friend and I were told that if my friend and I didn’t have existing ductwork, the cost of the air conditioning system upgrade would double the cost plus the time of upgrade. The Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier proposed that my friend and I choose an energy efficient unit. My friend and I learned that the higher the seasonal energy efficiency rating (SEER), the more efficient the system – leading to significant cost savings. The digital, programmable temperature controls – a type of Smart technology – is what entirely sold us. The chances for temperature control were amazing plus impressive. Since my friend and I were the real decision-makers, my friend and I let the kids know that night that the pool was out – plus cool air was in!
