Re: Just hot everywhere

What type of furnace do you have Auralie? If the furnace uses ducts to
move the air throughout your house, as in a gas-forced-air type, a new
a/c installation makes use of the same ductwork. Chris doesn't have any

I don't know about the mechanics of it, but we had central
air-conditioning installed about three years ago - after using
room air-contditioners for all those years - for under $2,000.
Maybe our house is smaller or our attic was easier of access -
I don't know.  But it wasn't that expensive, and we wished we
had had it done years ago.  It really makes life easier - just
humidity control is worth it.

I've been looking into mini-duct A/C as a cheaper option.  Since I have
radiant heat in the house there's no ductwork in the walls (well, there is,
but it's not useable -- long story).  Mini-duct uses small hoses that can
be fished between the wall studs, so there's a lot less work involved.
The cost could be as low as half ($6000).
