FIRST HOME: Now how do I cool it?!
I have recently bought my first home and am at a loss on how to cool it!!
It is a 1400 square foot, one-story ranch with a full attic (insulation in the floor only) and full unfinished basement. We plan on living in the house for 5-10 years.
I would like to do whatever is most efficient & cost effective in the long run. Central Air? Mini-split system? Portable A/C Unit? And what kind of costs are we looking at in general? I don't even have a ballpark idea!
I feel ignorant and any advice would be appreciated.
