I had someone come yesterday to give me an estimate on the cost and installation of a conventional central air system in my home. The installation would have to be done from scratch since I don't have any ductwork or anything like that. The house is also a tricky split level built in 1965 with approximately 1750 sq ft... kind of a unique design. The fellow that came to give me the estimate explained that I would need two units since there was not a straight area in the home where he could build a distribution channel that would connect the attic to the crawlspace... unless I were to do some funky remodeling. Well, needless to say that the estimate that I got was WAY OVER what I would have ever thought it would be (over $20K!!!). I have done some further research and learned that High Velocity A/C is a lot more flexible than conventional A/C and although some parts may be a bit more expensive, the overall project could be less expensive. At the same time, HV A/C can be more efficient than conventional. Can anyone speak a bit more about this? And, does anyone know where I can go to get someone to come to my house to give me a free estimate for the acquisition and installation of High Velocity A/C? Any help you can send this way will be SUPER appreciated.
