I have visited some beautiful locations in the mountains. When I visit, I particularly enjoy seeing waterfalls and hiking up and down rocky terrain. At the end of the day or in the morning over breakfast, it is nice to sit on the front deck of a nice mountain home and look out over mountain lakes and feel the crisp, clean air. The sunrises and sunsets are particularly amazing, though I think it gets dark a bit earlier given that the mountains hide the sun sooner than trees do. I could sit on the deck for hours, but it sometimes gets too cold however. It would be nice to have a furnace or heater out there to keep me warmer so I can enjoy longer. On the flip side, an air conditioner for the summer months would likely make any summer vacations to the mountains likewise very nice. I wonder if there are many HVAC businesses in small mountain towns who could install air conditioners or furnaces. If there aren’t so many, is the price of an HVAC service high, or does the frequency of HVAC service requests keep the cost low? This would be something worth investigating, were one determined to enjoy some cooling or heating on one’s mountain deck. It would be a worthwhile endeavor, because a furnace or heater could truly aid the outdoor experience of a mountain vacation, as one would then not need to go inside as frequently. One problem that I can foresee, however, is that HVAC services (including installation) might be a bit slow to take place for those homes that are truly tucked away in the mountains. Then again, perhaps the need for air conditioner and heater repair in the summers and winters, respectively, results in many HVAC services and so quicker install times.
