Some routines are easy and comfortable. Others are time-consuming and annoying. Here’s one routine that’s clearly no fun: Trudging down to the basement, dragging window air conditioners out of storage and fitting them—snugly and safely—into place for the summer.
Then, of course, lucky homeowners get to do it all over again—in reverse—at summer’s end. That’s a lot of work for window units that are often inefficient, noisy and messy.
Still, some homeowners are reluctant to toss out their window units because they fear an upgrade might be costly and still inefficient. Others worry about the inconvenience of AC maintenance or the inevitable price of an air conditioning repair in Chicago’s North Shore area. Or, if you don’t have ducts, you can’t fathom how an AC system can be added without damaging your beloved house and costing a bundle.
No matter what the reason, though, adding an air conditioning unit to older homes can be easier and less costly than you might think.
Whether it’s a classic Cape Cod, an older farmstead, a breathtaking brownstone or another vintage home style, older homes are typically designed to take advantage of the natural breeze, rather than the modern amenity of air conditioning. But, as temperatures rise, so does our intolerance for the heat.
