I am planning a renovation for my small home. It's a 2-story 900 sq ft brick carriage house. I am considering central air and am concerned about efficiency.

I know that a 2-zone system is more expensive, but would it really be more efficient?

Thanks in advance,

Brian Wood

Dear Mike.

Check out it's just what you're looking for. It's TOTALLY zonable, down to individual room temperatures.

When you contact them, tell 'em Brian Wood in Lake Charles, Louisiana sent you.

You'll like what you see.

Regards from Brian in Swampland.

You're a gentleman and a scholar, Harold.
I often forget that system descriptions are needed and appreciated.

Multi-Aqua is a much needed, and very easily installed system, and it's time has come.

Thanks from Brian in Swampland.

Thanks for the info.

Now if I can just find a contractor who would want to do this. Out in Brooklyn, they tend to like to keep things traditional, for better or worse. A couple a/c contractors I spoke with have begrudgingly said they could do something like this with Mitsubishi's Mr Slim, however, their hesitance isn't a good sign that they'd be right for the job.

Hi Mike, this might help.

Go to click on "The Wall" and ask your zone cooling questions there. Lots of professional radiant/cooling contractors of Harold's calibre visit there. In fact, I've heard the guys there referring other folk to Harold's website.

Also, click on "find a contractor" to find a pro near you.

You'll be happy with "MultiAqua".

Good luck with your search.
