Mel/Chris.

I too can't read the avitar. I think I asked about this on the old site once upon a time.

Parent's have a 2800 sq ft bilevel in white lake township.

hotwater baseboard heat. Mom is looking to have centrail air installed in the most economical way possible, and yet still be useful.

from what little I've (and she) has researched this is probably going to entail an attic installed compressor/condensor/blower, with ceiling vents, and/or the 2" ductwork.

if you guys do this type of work, and are willing to travel that far, please hit me up with a /PM and I'll forward your information to my mom, and my mom's information to you guys.

Chris/Mel.

Thanks for contacting my Mom. She as of now has not made up her mind with what she wants to do.

With the recent heat blast, I would have thought she wouldn't need any pursuasion.

We have been urging her to realize, that not very many people are willing to spend nearly $300k for a house without AC, unless it's on the water, or some similar draw to it. (I know I wouldn't)

She didn't have her notes with her when she told me about the call, but it sounded like you would be fabbing ductwork?

I guess I had assumed that the most economical route would have been to put in a high pressure AC system, with the tiny 2" flex ducts/hoses and the difuser vents.

the house has hot water baseboard heat, so naturally there aren't any existing ducts.

sometimes the most economical way to do something "upfront" isn't the best plan down the road. Not sure what Chris talked about in detail, but I know that he often will quote "the cheap way out" and then will provide some rationale to spend a bit more upfront to do better ductwork, etc. so that longterm efficiency/quality and the like is better.

From what he shared with me sounded like Mom is getting pressured from her kids to get A/C :tonka: My dad was the same way--used "window shakers" for years until he finally broke down and got Central Air. Then he couldn't believe he had waited so long to get it installed.


Best of luck convincing mom.

yes, we have been pressuring them to get AC for over a decade...

I have been employed, in one fashion or another with the real estate market. the size of the house/land, and location are now rapidly pushing that house into the high 200's, low 300's price range.

however, the lack of AC, and some deferred maintenance are putting market pressure in the opposite direction, as well as this state's employment issues.

apparently, another brother is looking into something that I guess is common out where he's at. attic installed, gravity fed mini units. (the way he described it, is similar, but slightly larger than "window shakers".

I guess the thought process being to install one in the bed room wing, and one in the living room wing, the latter of which would trickle down through the open/entry/landing area and into the already naturally cooler lower level

I fully and totally understand my mom's reluctance to part with the house on so many levels, but eventually she will be forced to accept that it's too much to maintain for one person. (nearly 2 acres, partially wooded, 5 bedrooms, 3 baths...)

again thanks for the estimate, and I apologize for any lack of follow through. with so much on her plate, it's not always easy for her to make a decision, or pull the trigger on something like this.

mitsubishi, makes a system that is called a mini-split. you have 4-6 evaporators mounted on the walls. the size depends on how much cooling is needed in certain locations, but mainly the front side of a window unit. about 4" deep. they are connected to the main unit (condenser) with refrigerant piping which may be run through walls. the condenser can be water or air cooled depends on location and what is available. I'll send a PM if you would like more info.
