A/C and heat on same circuit?
I'm afraid this may be a stupid question but it seems to make sense to me. I bought a duplex, which has three levels. The 2nd and 3rd (which is the attic) floors belong to the same unit, and already have A/C. The air handler for the for this unit is located on the 3rd floor, off from the living space, which will be the 3rd bedroom (there is A/C ductwork for the 3rd floor and in the ceiling of the 2nd floor). The rest of the house has boiler heat, but the 3rd floor is unheated, which I think I'll need to provide if this will be a bedroom. I was going to just add an in-wall electric heater for the 3rd room, and use the wiring that is already there for the air handler. Obviously they couldn't run at the same time but you wouldn't want to run heat and A/C at the same time anyway, so I thought I could just add a switch to send power to either the A/C or the heater. Do you think this will fly? It sounds like cutting corners but makes perfect sense to me (I'm not an electrician though).
