I have two diffeent companies come out that had different approaches to my central air retrofit in my older home with no ductwork. Because of limited space one company recommends:
A vertical Spacepak system buit into the empty space of my stariway between first and second floors (2 story). A condensing unit on the roof and a drianage pan under the unit in the wall with a pump for the water that follows the copper line set out of the house. 13 Seer Lennox 2.5 ton (1300 SF home) cost $XX,XXX K including ductwork
Other company wants to put in a tradition central air system and ductwork but use a "package rooftop unit" and also come down through an opening in the roof to feed air to the second floor and through the closets to the first floor. estimate is around $XXX K
XAny thoughts would be greatly appreciated. It is a 2 story home in South Philadelphia made of brick. There was an addition in the back that added on to the brick facade with stucco. It is a straight through row homw with 2 floors and 3 bedrooms and a hallway. main stairs going from living room to second floor above which company 1 wants to hang spacepak unit.
>>>edit... no pricing per Site Rules
