Of course for now it is not a really pressing issue and I have been trying pretty hard to find the best way of getting a new air conditioning system at the most affordable price. I have been looking at getting quotes on various types of systems and comparing what I can get for my money. I talked to this guy from a place called Aircon repair and servicing the other day and I was asking him about what various things would cost. The big thing I am wondering about is what they call a sector system I believe. That means that you have an outside unit and then you have a number of small systems which are used to cool down small parts of a home. That makes a lot of sense to me, in particular because we do not always need to have the whole house cooled down.
If you think about you pretty much use parts of your house only at certain times of the day. You spend around 8 hours per day laying in bed for example. In our house we have three bedrooms, but only two of them are occupied right now. So those two rooms are the only ones that need to be really comfortable for that period of the day. You are not using the one bedroom at any part of the day really now. Jack is off in college and unless he is here for break or a holiday, then his room does not need to be a comfortable temperature. So in theory it makes sense to have a zone system if that is the right way to phrase it. You have to figure out how to make the system smart enough to know what you really need it to do though.
