When I was growing up in this house we never even considered getting air conditioner. One of the nice parts of the summer, was sleeping with the windows open and feeling the breeze blow though the family room all evening. All of us did use box fans for the week or two of the summer time that was super hot, however we mostly spent those animal days at the beach. That’s what summers were for, right? Now, it seems summers are supercharged. They start earlier, get absurdly hot and humid, and last longer than they should. There’s no way to function without air conditioner in this house any longer. All of us have window units in the family rooms however they cost a fortune to run, are noisy, and the rest of the house is still steamy. My wife and kids are demanding I replace the place with central air conditioner. Thing is, ancient houses love this one have no ductwork and the cost of installing ductwork is prohibitive. Thankfully there is a solution that will work for my home: a ductless multi split system. No ductwork needed at all. The cooling units are mounted outside the house and lines and power cables run between the indoor and outdoor components, just a few small holes will be drilled into walls to affix the air conditioner equipment. The indoor cooling units can be mounted high up on walls or even on ceilings so the character of the house isn’t ruined. The best part of the multi split idea is that the temperature controls are installed in each room. This way everyone gets to set the temperature of the room they’re in. That alone will keep myself and others cool.
