I have a pretty small ranch house, really just 2 "major" rooms that need cooling and I'm faced with either buying a new outdoor heatpump condensing unit (trane) OR something that may be a "smarter" ? choice.
I'm single, so really only need to cool the parts of the house I'm in at the time -- tv room etc.
Can someone explain the PTAC and ductless air conditioning systems? I just ran across these on the home depot site (Ramsond) and know NOTHING about them.
I read about a simple hole through an exterior wall? high efficiency?
I know most of guys are in the business of installing whole house units so you may knock these but please be objective.
2000 to repair my heat pump -- but I want to make sure of other options.
Also -- another question -- I mounted a window AC unit high on a wall (cutout the wall) in my bedroom for occasional use. Of course, I'll drain it correctly and insulate it well.
Is there any reason why I can't vent the hot air from it into my attic? (There will be a roof vent nearby). thanks.
