I’m absolutely not sure how my uncle lived in this beach house without usual residential HVAC.
But she sure did and she did for nearly 50 years.
She had a propane furnace for the Winter time and there was one, old window cooling system in her kitchen for HVAC cooling in the summer. That’s what she lived with until she died as far as heating and cooling went. Her old beach house is now getting a complete heating and cooling makeover. That’s because my wonderful aunt’s beach house is now my house. I was stunned to find out that she left me her house. It’s a nice little beach house on nearly 10 acres. The perfect situation for me to be a first time homeowner. It didn’t take long for me to get to labor on my house. Most of the labor I wanted to do was stuff that I could see to. For the most part, the beach house was in wonderful shape and didn’t need all that much work. However, the HVAC machine just had to be addressed for sure. I considered putting in a central air conditioning. But that meant running ductwork through the house. Adding ductwork to an old house can be tricky, not aesthetically pleasing and extravagant. So I thought long and hard on that one before choosing to go a unusual direction. After conferring with the HVAC professional, it seemed pretty clear that going with a unusual style of HVAC technology might be the better answer. This led me to solving the quality heating and air complication by using a ductless multi split HVAC system.
