Question DetailsAsked on 12/12/2015

Cost-efficient heating a/c replacement for 3 rm house that now uses forced air units running on electricity?

We have a small guest house (LR, eat-in kitchen, loft BR, bthrm) which has 3 hotel-type units for heat and a/c.(although one is broken and not repair-able per the manufacturer) The electrical bill for a/c is enormous when we have guests, and we don't use the house in winter because keeping it warm is prohibitively expensive. There is no basement, but there is a small attic space accessible from the loft bedroom.
Can someone recommend a way to replace our current "system" with a more usable one? The goal would be to both minimize the upfront cost and also the monthly energy bills. We don't mind exposed ductwork if necessary. We would also be open to solar -- not sure if its possible, though. The area around the house is wooded and /or in the shade from tall trees, but we also have sunny land in the general vicinity. Thanks for any help!
