Most of my friends feel that I have totally gone around the bend.
They could be right however I feel I’m really on to something here.
The thing is that I am choosing a particularly non traditional region of the country to retire to. That’s right, I’m headed to the center of the country to live my dream retirement. I was once located in the middle states for work. I enjoyed the people, the culture and well just everything about it. I even care about the weather there. I feel this is the section that all my friends don’t understand. I care about just being comfortable in my Heating, Ventilation and A/C controlled house doing my thing. I don’t necessarily need to be in the sun or playing tennis to appreciate my life. Plus, I really appreciate the winter. I care about the snow and I care about having a warm apartment to cozy up in. Really, my needs are quite easy. That’s what makes it so straight-forward to do what I’m doing. My plans are also made more easy by the option of my Heating, Ventilation and A/C unit. My current apartment will be heated and cooled through the use of a geothermal Heating, Ventilation and A/C system. The method utilizes the earths near constant temps to supply heating and cooling. It is really pretty easy. There is a long tube that loops out and back from my house. This tube then extracts heat or cool energy and transfers it to water. This water then circulates through my apartment via copper tubing under my floors. When it’s really cold out, there is a small gas furnace which supplements heat for the water. So, my friends can feel I’m ridiculous but I’m gonna be barefoot in my apartment for the rest of my life!
