Options for house with no A/C?

11 years ago

I'm planning to sell my house in Southern NY and it stands out from similar listings because it has no A/C (has oil based hot water baseboard heat). The house is naturally cool and doesn't really need it unless you hate heat--which some people do. What would be the quickest and cheapest way to give the house some A/C so as not to scare off buyers? (Window units would not add curb appeal so I wouldn't consider those).

It's a centre hall colonial, about 3000sq ft with a semi finished basement and unfinished attic. The mini splits sound interesting but he units are every bit as unattractive as window units, so those don't really seem like an option, unless you can bury them in the ceiling or something. Also, in a house this size it seems like it might cost as much as a conventional system.

I'd appreciate any advice on options!
