My house was built in the early eighteen hundreds and most of the features are still the original.
Every one of us still have the cold plaster walls and ceilings, hardwood floors and a gorgeous fireplace. The house is freaking huge, and divided into several smaller rooms. While my husband and I were drawn to the charm and history of the rooms, it has hit us with some challenges. When the people I was with and I moved in, there was no insulation in the plaster walls and all of the old windows were painted shut and leaked air. There was no centralized heating and cooling system. Without HVAC duct, the people I was with and I were forced to piece together unusual styles of portable electric heaters, box fans and window a/cs. The house was shockingly cold during the Wintertime and boiling and sticky all Summer. I hated the look of the popular heating and cooling equipment. I started looking into options for temperature control. I entirely didn’t want to have to tear down the walls and ceilings, supply up tons of area or sacrifice architectural integrity. I wanted to find a compact and affordable system that would supply both whole-house heating and cooling. I selected a high-velocity Heating and A/C, and it has been the ideal solution. This genre of system is particularly designed to meet the specialized needs of older homes. It uses actually slim, bendy mini-ducts that can be threaded into existing walls without causing disfigure. The vents are only multiple inches in diameter and allow total freedom of location. The unit is small enough to fit into a closet or the attic. With the new high velocity heating and cooling system, the people I was with and I can finally adjust temperature through the whole house with a centralized control unit.
