I'm starting to look for a new furnace & whole house A/C. My old gas Lenox furnace has held up well & is still working fine after 57 years but I looking to replace it with a more efficient as well as the bunch of window A/C units I currently have. One area that may be a problem is that 18 years ago I had an addition put on but at the time didn't run duck work to that area. Just have a in wall furnace to heat it. I'm looking for suggestions on what to look for in a furnace (brands, models, accessories) & A/C unit, questions to ask a contractor & is there a way to have the A/C to to my addition since there isn't any duck work??? I'm guessing the furnace & A/C from others I've talked to will be around $4,000 to 5,000 for the Pittsburgh area, any help on what to use for the A/C in the addition & approx cost for such thing.

Thanks in advance to anyone that responds,

The best thing to do is call a installer.

Providing that the new addition has a craw space under it, there should be no problem adding on.

The company will haft to load size your home to get the most efficient furnace for it.(Measure)

When shopping for a furnace in my opinion would be a 90% efficient with a 12 to 13 seer A/C unit.

Good Luck
