Adding heat to central air

I'm looking at buying my first house. It has baseboard heat and a wood fire stove and central air. I was wandering if it is possible or how hard/costly it would be to use the existing duct work and add heat.


Re: Adding heat to central air

It's always best to first try to work with the heating system that is already in place (hot water heat ??).

Have you hired an inspector to check out the heating system yet---what does he/she say???

Why is it that you feel the heat is inadequate now??

Have the current homeowners or inspector said something to indicate that the heat is inadequate??

Re: Adding heat to central air

They are electric and the previous owner says they work fine. But the utility bills were high and we were looking for something more efficient. Note, the living room is open to second floor and has vaulted ceilings. We would also like to remove them for aesthetic purposes, but that is secondary to efficiency.
