I have a 75-year-old 3-story stick frame colonial in the northeast. Currently have oil-fired steam heat (needs new furnace) and would like to convert to gas operation and add a/c. I'm worried about the feasibility and cost of running ductwork through the house. I'm afraid I'll eat any cost savings on oil up with fabrication & installation costs. Any thoughts, folks? Thanks.
The bottom lins is that you will have to endure this cost in order to get A/C. I know it's expensive, but it willmake you more comfortable in the long run. Get prices on a unit called, "Space Pak" It is a high volocity air handler which uses smalled ductwork which can be installed through smaller areas which regular size duct will not fit.
