My 1950 original boiler is probably on its last leg, and as we're about to do some serious renovation to the house, I figured its a good time to switch over to a good forced air system. I live in SE Michigan and the boilers / hydronic heating are not common (seemingly) around here any more. I don't mind putting the ductwork in at this point.
I'm interested in the packaged "all-in-one" solutions. For example this one from Trane (click me). Can I install this sytem in the SE Michigan climate? It installs outdoors, and with the harsh winters, I'm wondering if this is even a possibility.
This type of system is particularly appealing as I don't have a basement, and the space I can save by having the install be largely outside is definitely worth paying the extra for a system like this one.
