By the time you finish renovating would cost the same as a new house or more and you still have an old house. Benefits are you can do it in stages as you can afford it and shouldn't need any approvals. New is a big cost in one go but you can have the latest technology. I grew up in an old asbestos house with floorboards you could see the ground, collapsing ceilings and it was hotter inside in summer than outside and colder in winter. We burnt wood to keep warm like it was going out of fashion. Now i live in a new house and one little 2.5hp reverse cycle is all we need on the hotest and coldest of days.
