Yes. Especially if you do not have duct work installed. It also depends on where you reside in the country. I live in the Southeastern part of the United States. Around 10 years ago, I had it installed. It cost me around 7,000 10 years ago. This was for a 1800 square foot, 3 bedroom home that I was restoring. It is expensive, but adds thousands of dollars to the value of your home.
