The issue is that I have no existing ductwork in the house so a ducted
require running all the necessary ducting. Fine, thats not too complicated.
Next issue is finding suitable holes for the outside supply and return
vents. Its a bit
tricky in my situations but I might be able to do it. Also two holes to
drill instead of
No, its not too bad, but I would be tempted to get it installed anyways in
whereas the single-room unit I would not.
Nevertheless, it seems stunningly clear to me at this point that the answer
to my original
question is "No, these units do not exist in North America". It would have
been nice to
receive that answer but I suppose Usenet beggars cant be choosers :-)
Thanks anyways for all of your advise. It has been informative and has
gotten me thinking
a little bit!
Ooops--I forgot that you have no forced-air system/ducting. I'm
curious why you need two holes to the outside? There are attactments
you can buy (from the HVAC supply place--although you'll pay 3x the
cost for them) where you hook up both the in and out into one pipe and
it is split on the outside end (and only one end-cap/cover).
Anyway, sounds like an opportunity for importing the European stuff
