Moving to a new state can be a fun yet daunting task. It takes time to acclimate to the new environment and to adjust to different regional cultural norms. If you are planning to move to Colorado this
summer, here’s something to consider when looking at Denver real estate that may be different from your area.
What do you mean
there’s no AC!?!?!
If you are moving to Denver from a warm southern state, you may not even
think about asking if a home has air conditioning. In Denver, we have the luxury of living with four seasons
and a very conducive climate for living with our windows open during the
spring, summer and fall. However, when
the peak summer season hits, retreating into central air conditioning is a much
desired option. In our market, central air conditioning did not become a big
selling feature until the early-2000s. So a lot of homes do not have central
air conditioning. If the home you are considering does not have air
conditioning, be sure to get a quote from a qualified HVAC technician. The cost to install later could surprise you
and could require some electrical upgrades as well. One alternative to air conditioning is an evaporative
cooler; aka swamp cooler. I know the name
does not sound appealing but it is a viable alternative to air conditioning. This type of system cools air through the
evaporation of water and works well in our dry, low humidity climate. The cost of installation and maintenance is
lower than traditional central air conditioning. For the month of March, I will be blogging about the unique real
estate features of moving to Denver. If you
