I am interested in everyone's opinion. Here is the scenario:
I am remodeling a single story 2200 sq ft home with a full basement. The house will have a open floor plan. It was built in 1924. No central air, radiated heat. The basement ceiling is only 7ft. I plan to utilize the basement as a family room and would love to keep as much ceiling height as possible. I plan to purchase a HVAC system but am starting to go crazy trying to decide between a traditional forced air system, high velocity system or the ductless systems. I like the information that I have been reading about the high velocity systems but there are a lot of stories about the amount of noise the Unico systems make. I live in the Midwest and have heard that the ductless heating systems may not work for our cold winters. I really would not prefer to go with the large ducts associated with the traditional forced systems but if that is the best of the three, I have no choice. Any advice?
