I felt like I was in a maze in our current house when the people I was with and I first obtained the locale. The house is actually big & is hooked up to a boiler system for heating purposes, and unluckyly, a nice central cooling system was non-existent. There were only window AC units in peculiar windows. I knew that was a situation that the people I was with and I would have to remedy with a central cooling install. All of us made it through our first Winter time with no complications. Actually the boiler system worked good & it was more energy efficient than I expected. I thought the gas bills would be outrageous, but they weren’t. As soon as the people I was with and I got into the Spring season, I made arrangements to have the cooling install taken care of. All of us had an Heating & Air Conditioning expert for a free consultation. The woman was good & told us about peculiar types of cooling systems including central cooling units, ductless mini chop AC units, & even radiant cooling systems which are interesting. Since the house is actually large, I decided that it would be nice to have some sort of zoned cooling system, so I went for the ductless multi chop AC system which covers the whole house with customized temperature control settings. The appealing thing about this system is that it can also be replaced to provide heating as well. I realize that the people I was with and I would have 2 peculiar oil heating systems if the people I was with and I made the choice to go that route, but why would you not want to have a solid backup oil furnace for when you entirely need it? I would hate to be stuck in the chilly of the Winter time with my oil furnace failing & no backup.
