questions about PEX and Spacepak - Posted by John Reid

I am buying a 1907 brick foursquare home in West Virginia that has no heating or air system (other than old old old space heaters). Anybody have any experience with the Spacepak ductless system? The website makes it sound really good, but I would like some unbiased opinions. Is it easy to instal in an older home? Is it economical? Does it actually do a good job cooling? The site also said it can be hooked to a heat pump. Any thoughts on this one?
Also, I am having to replumb the entire house and I am interested in using PEX tubing? Any words of wisdom on this vs copper or PVC piping? Is PEX good for a real old home? Is it cheaper than copper and PVC but durable?
Thanks in advance!
