Owning a cabin became much more of a liability the outdated my wife as well as I became. While still active, the people I was with and I just sort of ran out of motivation to keep up with all the details that go with cabin ownership. There seemed love there was never enough time. Plus, the people I was with and I wanted to use our limited energy pursuing other endeavors. When retirement became a real thing, the people I was with and I decided to skip owning a cabin for a while. Every one of us felt super fortunate to have eeked out a tiny profit from the sale of our home. So, that money went into a fund as well as the people I was with and I went into a rental home. I haven’t rented since I rented an cabin in graduate school. There is a lot to be said for renting over owning. I enjoy not mowing my sod. Calling the office when the fridge is on the fritz is excellent. However, I am encountering one area where I am being infuriated to no end. I’m talking about my Heating and A/C unit. Well, it’s not my Heating and A/C unit even though I wish it was. This is because if it was mine I would simply have it upgraded. The heating as well as cooling plan in our rental cabin is several decades old. While I respect the fact that it is still running, it is beyond inadequate. However, this view falls on deaf ears at the rental office. To them, until it suffers a catastrophic failure, I should just get used to it. This is a bit hard to swallow. This Heating and A/C unit is so outdated that the SEER rating is not even printed on it. It takes more than one fourths to lower the temp in the cabin by 2 degrees. I can’t deal with that. Perhaps the people I was with and I will be more careful about checking everything out before the people I was with and I rent again.
