Window a/c for my old house

Someone once told me that window air conditioning units are better plus more energy saving if you have an old home, however running a central cooling system in an old beach house can end up costing you more to use the thing, plus also, it is possible that the beach house may not even have HVAC duct, so that alone would cost a fortune! I never had genuinely thought about this, because I have been using central air conditioning for decades now

Someone once told me that window air conditioning units are better plus more energy saving if you have an old home, however running a central cooling system in an old beach house can end up costing you more to use the thing, plus also, it is possible that the beach house may not even have HVAC duct, so that alone would cost a fortune! I never had genuinely thought about this, because I have been using central air conditioning for decades now. Because I live in the south, having window cooling systems are not genuinely an option, everyone has central heating, ventilation & A/C. If you were to try to have a window cooling system in the south, you have a lot of potential troubles to deal with, not to mention, there are no windows in the way these homes are built that would accept a window cooling system! However, if you have an older beach house plus live in the south, you can get yourself a portable air conditioning unit, or maybe even a swamp cooler mixed with a portable air conditioning unit. However, back to the point on hand, I did find out that having a window air conditioning component does save tons on energy use in an older home, instead of a central cooling system, then so, if you have an old home, go with the window air conditioning component if you do not live in the south part of the US of america! That is what I did for our older beach house that I have as a Summer getaway in the north.
