Tearing out nasty air ducts and going split


About two years ago when my great-great Grandma passed away I was genuinely devastated.

My friend and I always had such an amazing relationship and had written each other back and forth from opposite sides of the country when I was growing up. In my much younger years, I always went out and spent my breaks from university with my great great Grandma in his awesome forest cottage. It was an amazingly charming dwelling to stay in, and I had a great time playing pretend in learning books as a child there. I was often find a new areas of the dwelling to explore, such as the crawl space and the creepy attic. My great great Grandma must have realized how much I enjoyed that gorgeous house. When he passed away, he left me the entire property. When I got the house, I was so overwhelmed that I swore I would never change a single detail. However, when I genuinely went out to inspect the dwelling after all these years, I knew that was promised I could not keep. Obviously, the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system wasn’t going to make it. I called out a heating and cooling specialist to inspect to the existing boiler and old a/c. He told me that the air handling equipment was fine, but the air ducts themselves were completely destroyed. It would be seriously inefficient to rip out the walls, separate from the existing air ducts, and replacing them with new ones. Instead, I bought various mini split ductless heating and cooling systems and had them installed throughout the house. Now, I can live in this gorgeous house separate from worrying about the inefficient central heating and cooling, and I even have zoned temperature controls.
