Converting from oil to ??
Tonight we had a plumber come to the house to give an estimate for converting from oil to gas. I live in the New York metro area in a 3600 sq foot three story house built in the 1920s with a balloon frame and full unfinished basement. When I asked about also moving our steam pipes in the basement to ultimately get pipes out of way for a future renovation, he recommended we get rid of oil furnace, indoor oil tank and all steam pipes in basement and instead get a ductless system which would replace heat and central air for whole house. Does this make any sense? I know installation will be expensive, won't electric bills be high? Any advice? Thanks.
