Well, VA doesn't get too cold of winters, and at first we had hot water radiated heat. When we finally got central air into the house we lost the radiators. That first house had really uneven heat. We had built a room in the attic for our homeschooling and it was hot up there year round. The AC couldn't keep up in the heat and the heat rose to the attic so that even when we had the vents shut in there it was super hot...the kids did school in Tshirts and shorts even in the winter! When we rehabbed the second house which was much larger and had had a 2story addition built on, we put in two separate heat/AC units with programmable thermostats. It ended up costing about the same to heat/cool as it had in the 1000sq foot smaller house just because of the efficiency of the units and the way we were able to program the different levels of the house where, during the day when we were in the downstairs, we didn't bother to heat and cool the upstairs.
