I've seen many ugly houses and buildings to this age - but that there AC installation is downright disgustingly ugly.

I could install one in my house - the outside placement is on garden side under large window - and it could be camouflaged or sumpting. But the idea of having that big inside thingy in my nice living room is as appallant as putting a toilet seat on the wall . . .

There is a thin floor inside that window because of previous rearrangements in this house. Under the floor is space that would accommodate the inside unit. I could make a hole w grid in the floor to bring the air to living room - and servicing the inside unit downstairs would be easy. Unfortunately nobody can deliver such combo.

Are you saying you need an AC in Finland?

Last summer was exceptionally warm - our house faces south and two large windows are not shaded by trees. It got hot for few weeks. i got a big white canvas and tied it in a position that resembles the roof line. Touching the white wall outside in shadow and sunny spot - very noticable difference.

And those units work as heaters in wintertime - yelding max 3x the heat energy compared to the energy that drives them.

So they are technically slightly different - work both ways - inside out - outside in - but they look just the same with those ugly ducts on your beautifull plastered or stucco wall.

So to answer your question - for 3-10 weeks at summer we could use AC - and except for the coldest time of the year they are efficient heaters - like 6-8 months

Heh! I feel your pain, but with the humidity AND high temps, I'd die. I'm good with colder. Heat not so much. Which is strange considering where I live. And trust me, mold is hardly an issue here. We had to do a reinstall on the newer unit to get it finally working right. They opened everything up (roof mount) and checked the ducts. Clean as a whistle. Do you have to DE-humidify for your guitars??

Tom - if you're asking about de-humidifying - short answer - no - never.
