In the apartment that I currently live in there is no central heating or AC.
- The apartment is outdated and may have been built in the 1940s and there is lead paint on the windowsills.
The need for an A/C is very important in the weather conditions in which I live. The shade from the important oak tree in the backyard very helps the apartment cool. Without central A/C the two of us have been able to manage with window unit AC‘s for the past 5 years. Window unit AC’s are much easier to manage in terms of replacement and repair, replacing a window unit A/C is much cheaper than repairing a central A/C unit. I’ve consistently been very gleeful with the window unit A/C and how they cool only a single room at a time. Not having central heat or A/C has never been an issue because we’ve consistently had space oil furnaces as our primary source of heat. The space oil furnaces are wonderful and do very well at heating a room.Heating and cooling only a single room at a time is very cost-efficient and saves energy. Our energy bills are much less than they would be if the two of us had central heating and AC. Saving currency on energy bills allows us to travel more because the two of us are not spending as much on central heating and cooling as various people. The space oil furnaces are a totally great source of heat in my opinion. I enjoy sitting next to the space heating system while the rest of the apartment is frigid in the Winter weeks. The only problem with having a space heating system is that it can cause a fire much quicker than a central heating unit would.
