In the beach house that I currently live in there is no central heating or AC.
The beach house is old and may have been built in the 1940s and there is lead paint on the windowsills.
The need for an AC is absolutely crucial in the temperature in which I live. The shade from the crucial oak tree in the backyard absolutely helps the beach house cool. Without central AC all of us have been able to manage with window machine AC‘s for the past 5 years. Window machine AC’s are much easier to manage in terms of upgradement and repair, but replacing a window machine AC is much cheaper than repairing a central AC unit. I’ve regularly been absolutely thrilled with the window machine AC and how they cool only a single room at a time. Not having central heat or AC has never been an issue because we’ve regularly had space oil furnaces as our primary source of heat. The space oil furnaces are good and do absolutely well at heating a room.Heating and cooling only a single room at a time is absolutely cost-efficient and saves energy. Our utility bills are much less than they would be if all of us had central heating and AC, saving currency on utility bills allows us to travel more because all of us are not spending as much on central heating and cooling as numerous people. The space oil furnaces are a totally nice source of heat in our opinion. I enjoy laying next to the space gas furnace while the rest of the beach house is freezing in the Wintertide weeks. The only problem with having a space gas furnace is that it can cause a fire much quicker than a central heating machine would.
