I'm a young Oregon resident who recently embarked on the adventure of first-time home ownership. My 1948, 1132 sq ft one story has had some recent good upgrades but could really use some improvement in heating & cooling. It has a wood stove which I love but isn't a practical primary heating source, and most rooms have outdated, though pretty effective, fan forced wall heaters. No duct system. Electric hot water and electric everything else. There are so many options out there that I don't even know where to start. I'm not looking for the best of the best, just something relatively efficient and affordable. AC would be nice but not nearly a requirement. Can you give me any advice? Is there an "HVAC for Dummies" or something? I just don't even know where to start looking before trying for my first major home-improvement project and I'm worried about getting taken for a ride. Any words of wisdom much appreciated.
