Orange County commissioners to review animal shelter A/C recommendation

The county recently spent about $15,000 to study options to get air conditioning into the pet section of the building!
From the look-see of Channel 9 news,
The pet section already has duck work
into their part of the building
and if not used,
why on earth will it cost
another $1.5 to $3 million
for a new air condition system
just for that part of the building?
It only cost about 1/4 that much
to condition a complete building!
Do you need a quick check just off the internet?
|Adding central air conditioning to an existing forced-air heating system in a 2,000-square-foot house averages $3,500-$4,000, and can be done by two technicians in 2-3 days, with little or no change to the existing ducting; if ducts must be added, the work time doubles, as does the cost to $7,000-$8,000 or more, according to ThisOldHouse.com .
Estimates for a older, smaller house of 800-1,000 square feet with no existing duct work run $2,100-$6,000, or as high as $10,000 or more, depending on the type and quality of equipment installed, the amount of space available for installing ducts and vents, and the local economy.
