Why Time Is Short Now That We’re Past Peak Oil
Note: With so much going on with Europe’s debt crisis, the continuing disaster and economic contraction in Japan, and the potential for a very hard landing in the Chinese growth miracle (which is in the running as my favorite “black swan candidate” for 2011), I am going to return our attention to oil in this report.
How much would it cost to replace a house’s heating system? (1500-2000 sq. ft.; from hot water to forced air)

I’ve been told that if you have hot water radiator heating, then there is no duct framework for air conditioning.

This is true but with the forced air heat system they will install the duct work . About 13 years ago I had wood heat and had forced air installed. It cost $1300 but was for about 900 sq ft. and they used the insulated duct work that is not made with the metal duct work. I also did not have the central air installed at that time but rather later.
I had estimates all the way from $7000 to $1300……….I have a 75BTU for enlarging the house later. All together with CA and FAH it was $2600……….I would say you are looking at $8,000 to $10,000. But so worth it…..providing you get gas.
If you are handy and have some handy friends sweat equity is well worth it. You could cut that price in half.
Just make sure you do your homework on which unit and COMPANY if you choose not to do it yourself.
PS Go to your local home improvement store like Lowes and those people know their business and can help you do the job.

My entire unit is installed in the attic alone with the duct work . The AC is outside.
