My house consists of basement,main floor and second floor.
The basement has 500 sqf
Main floor has 630 sqf ( open concept)
Second floor has 500 sqf (Bedrooms/office)
We currently have water radiators that heat the house, and are looking at what our options are for getting A/C in this older house. Our main concern is to cool off the main floor and second floor as the basement we assume will be cool on its own as cool air naturally falls down.
I have researched the options out there:
Forced Air from basement up via duct work.
High Velocity cooling from the top down ( attic )
Low Velocity cooling from the top down ( attic )
Out of the 3 i have no idea which is the least expensive and which is the most.
I also would like to know if either of the 3 systems would be enough to cool off the house.
The house is going through a complete interior renovation, all the walls are being insulated and drywall.
Any advice anyone can provide it would be great. I have just now started to contact a few companies for quotes and opinions but would like to have an idea what might be the best route to go before i talk to anyone.
Cheers and Thank You.
