I am getting quotes. I have decided my new "den" (AKA ex.garage) will have proper air-con. Not sure yet if ceiling mount like the office, or wall mount.
But what of the rest of the house?
Basically, during the winter, a heat pump is pretty efficient as a way of heating even compared to gas - right?
During the summer I am fed up with it being too damn hot. Yes, even in the UK.
Now, I have problems...
I can easily do a couple of the bedrooms, but need to find some really quiet internal units for that. Hopefully such things exist.
Getting the living room done will be harder. I could take the view of "sod that, I have my new 'Den' and don't care" but maybe I should try. I probably need to find a way not to have a visible internal unit. Ideally it needs to be something mostly external that appears as some innocuous "vents" on the wall high up internally, else it will not get approval. Basically Sandra puts "how it looks" way above "how comfortable it is" which is a challenge for some rooms.
It won't be cheap, I am sure, but I would assume this has to add value to the house. Overall I am not against spending some of my hard earned money on creating an asset. That said, there is a lot to be said for being "comfortable" regardless.
Getting some people in to quote real soon now.
Any constructive comments welcome.
