I never planned on installing a central cooling system into our house.
Although the summer time weather in this area can be awfully hot and humid, it doesn’t last really long. Typically, the people I was with and I only get about more than one to more than two months of brutal conditions. The winters, but, are a challenge for numerous to numerous months. All of us endure hot and cold temperatures down to twenty below zero, dire wind chill and feet of snow. I’ve spent a fortune on a forced air oil furnace to combat the frigid weather. After blasting the heating system all Winter time and paying such high utility bills, I looked forward to opening the windows. When the home heated up and felt sticky, I’d start up a bunch of box fans. This wasn’t ideal. The fans were noisy, stirred up dust, and detracted from aesthetics. They didn’t supply much relief. When I hired an Heating & Air Conditioning supplier to maintenance the oil furnace, I complained about the summer time humidity. He told myself and others that his supplier was offering a deal on the replacement of a central cooling system. I looked into it and realized that as long as I chose an Energy Star rated air conditioner, I could also take advantage of a manufacturer’s rebate and tax credits, but since I already had the duct system and air handler in place for the oil furnace, the project was not overly high-priced. I went ahead and had the central cooling system installed. I was amazed by the improvement in the comfort, cleanliness and enjoyment of our home. I can now keep the windows shut, which prevents the influx of pollen, dust, exhaust fumes, bugs and exterior noise pollution. The investment was definitely worthwhile.
