I'm looking for any information/experiences anyone has with water cooled air conditioning systems. One of the houses we are looking at purchasing has one as part of a FAG system. The only type of A/C I am familiar with is the standard (in this neck of the woods anyway) compressor outside/exchanger inside system.

What are the advantages/disadvantages of using water cooling? Do people still install them (the house is 25 years old and the unit may be original)?

Any help would be appreciated.

P.S. I am in Ontario, Canada. We typically have our A/C on for a total of maybe 20 days over the course of a summer.

You didn't say where you are. In North Carolina, there are ground-water based heat pump systems. I know little about how they work, but it might be worth checking into for those who live in the right climate.
