My house is pretty old.
It is almost a hundred years old, in fact, and I find it to be quite Charming.
It is near the historic section of my city, but it is not considered a historic building that must get all improvements approved by the historic committee. Anyway, I am glad about that, because I am considering replacing the central heating and cooling system with multiple mini split units throughout my house. The reasons for this are multiple. First of all, my HVAC unit is getting very old and inefficient. It is a good HVAC system, but all mechanical things wear out, and that includes air conditioners. My HVAC technician has told me that it will be difficult, if not impossible, to get parts for my HVAC system in about 2 or 3 years. The manufacturers simply stopped making those HVAC parts when they considered the HVAC systems really should be replaced anyway. I could just replace the whole HVAC system with another one, but three times now I have had to replace the ductwork in my house Because critters have gotten in the crawlspace and torn up my ducts. I am tired of doing that, so a ductless AC unit has a peel. In addition, I would like to be able to use air conditioning in the guest bedroom only when it is needed. If I have guests, and they have a mini-split AC in their room, they could adjust the thermostat to whatever they want, allowing them to be more comfortable. In addition, I have a formal living room and a more comfortable and laid-back family room. I am only one person and cannot be in both of those rooms at the same time. In fact, one is in the back of the house and the other is in the front. Having mini split units could allow me to have very quiet air conditioning running in one room while the other one simply has no AC on. Plus, mini split units are inexpensive, easy to install, and inexpensive to install, and easy to repair.
