I recantly purchased my first home.
The furnace is @ 30 years old.
The AC unit is 18 years old.
It's a 1953 Ranch, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bath, with 1/2 basement.
1162 sqft not counting the basement. It's in central Ohio.
I was looking to replace the floor vents when I stumbled across the Hi Velocity systems (never knew such things existed). They really interest me, as I would love to have the HVAC vents off the floor. The rooms are small by todays standard, so floor vents really impact furnature placement. Also the idea of one that could handle all the HVAC needs of the house from the attic would free up a ton of space in my basement. (The attic is not tall enough to really be a usefull space)
Now, to the question.
I have searched and searched on the web and in these forums. Everyone states that they are more expensive than standard Lo Velocity equipment. Given the above information, I was wondering if anyone could give me a rough ball park estimate as to the price premium HiV would carry over replacing the existing setup with newer models?
Now, I'm not looking for a $ figure, just a % estimate. I don't want to waste someone's time coming out too look at my house only to hear that it's going to be 2x my budget. Are these things 25%, 50%, 100% more expensive?
Given the way the house is, I figure the install would be fairly simple.
Thanks, and I appologise if this breaks the rules. I tried my best to find this info with out needing to post.
