If so I have a question about forced air systems. Our house currently has a force air system with a split AC unit (part of it indoors and part of it outdoors). If that is removed (forgive my wrong word there.. haha!) will that affect the heating system?

First off......I'm the dad, haha. Would you happen to know if primary means of heating are electric or heat pump? Or possibly natural gas depending on where you live. Yes, all 3 of these sources make an impact on efficiency.


What are you trying to remove and why?

Ok thank you for being willing to answer my question! :)

We have natural gas heating.

We're not removing it the owners want to, I'm assuming to sell it since it is currently going into foreclosure. We want to buy the house but they won't short sale because they want to file for bankruptcy. (hah this is probably more than you wanted to know!)

I should explain that I don't care if they remove it.. once we buy the house, they're insurance will go after them for removing it and we'll get to deduct the amount  from the cost of the house if there is any damage.

I just want to make sure it won't affect the heating system, which is legally not ok to do if a tenant is living in a house.

Is there a separate furnace? If not, removing the split system will include removing the heat also.
