My sister lives in this old house downtown and she’s been there for a couple of years now.
The place is a real fixer upper, if you want to know the truth.
I can’t believe that she even bought the place, but she really seems to like it. She likes to say that the house has good bones, whatever that means. She has been working on fixing it up a little bit at a time but she doesn’t want to go into debt. That’s why she’s trying to pay cash as she goes so she will not have to use her credit cards. Anyway, one of the things that she knew she was going to have to fix in the house is the HVAC system. She probably should have started with doing the renovations on that in the first place, because there’s a super weird smell in the ventilation ducts. Every single time that she turns on the heating or cooling system, a weird yucky smell comes out of the air vents. I keep on telling her that she should get the vents professionally cleaned but she’s just been trying to save up her money. Now, she’s finally to the point where she’s going to buy a new central air conditioning unit and an electric furnace unit too. I told her that as long as she’s going to have the HVAC company at her place, she might as well go ahead and have them professionally clean out the air ducts, too. I think that it might save her some money on service fees since it would save them a trip to her house in the HVAC truck. Hopefully once the air ducts get cleaned out, the weird smell will go away!
