    This is a great forum - my first post.....

    Looking at buying a 21 year old home in southern Ontario, Canada.
    1550 sq. ft
    1.5 stories
    electrical baseboard heating (obviously, no ductwork)
    natural gas fireplace

    What systems are available to provide forced air heating & cooling without having to install ductwork?
    Space Pak? Unico?

    I'm not asking for prices....just have no idea what a system like this would cost - I'm just looking for a ballpark figure.

    Thank you for your help.
    Joe

    Why not stay with (convert to Hydronic) baseboard heat?
    .. Hot Water Boiler
    .. Natural Gas

    more work to instal a boiler then a furnace...more expensive but of course as comfort the water is the way to go.
