My mom and dad bought their house in 1975.
They have been living in the same dwelling since then.
They have raised three children in the house and now we have grandchildren playing on the floors and having fun. I had all of the kids over to the house last weekend and my mom and dad had an appointment with an HVAC contractor. My dad needed some work performed in the house so they called a contractor to give them an estimate. A couple of the pieces of ductwork had holes and needed to be replaced. My mom and dad found out that all of the ductwork in the house needed to be replaced. The contractor told my parents that 65% of the ductwork was in rough shape and needed to be replaced. Since they were going to complete all of that work, it made sense to replace everything at the same time. My mom and dad were surprised by the news. They certainly didn’t expect to find out that the house needed $15,000 worth of HVAC ductwork repairs. My parents are going to have the work done, because they don’t plan on leaving the house. The contractor has to order the sheet metal and cut all the pieces before he can install everything. My dad ame an appointment with the contractor for next Tuesday. The guy said it would take all day to complete the job, but hopefully the new ductwork will cut down on energy bills. My parents have been spending a fortune to heat and cool the house.
