My husband and I didn’t do the traditional wedding.
- We actually just signed some papers and called it a day.
Our families still sent us money and now we don’t know what to do with it. My husband and I both agree the money should go towards something in the house. But what can we agree on? I know the two of us both would like to have zone control. We don’t share a bedroom because we have vastly different temperature needs. My husband likes to be pounded with AC all night long. He also wears a CPAP and is a light sleeper. I want to have the heater running, be under a thick comforter and I move a ton when I sleep. It is better to keep us separate. Having a zone control system would mean we could set our thermostats and not bother the other one. Additionally zone control reduces our energy bills. Unused rooms don’t need to have HVAC anymore. We have another bedroom, bathroom and laundry room that get perfect heating and air that doesn’t need to. To upgrade to zone control we need a ductless HVAC unit though. Our current unit is almost 20 years old, it is time. We would need a new HVAC system, multiple indoor units and thermostats and of course the installation fee. I don’t know if our wedding money would cover it. I would hate to get deep into the project and realize I need to sink my own money into it. It is a lot of money to buy something we don’t really need at this point.
