When our fiance and I obtained a historical home, the two of us were particularly unhappy with the portable heating and cooling units.
Because the walls in the lake house are exceptionally narrow and constructed of plaster, installing a conventional duct method isn’t a viable option.
The former owners managed temperature control with window A/Cs and electric baseboard heaters. These heating and cooling units are noisy, unnappealing, inefficient and ineffective. In our local area, the two of us deal with Winter time un-even temperatures below zero and excessive Summer heat and humidity. The apartment was uncomfortable just about all year round. I finally consulted a local Heating and A/C supplier for some help. He requested the upgrade of a high-velocity Heating and A/C system. The compact size of the equipment and flexibility of the ducts allow this type of method to be retrofitted into existing homes separate from a crucial renovation project. There’s no need to tear down walls or gut the home. The narrow ducts can be snaked between beams and joints, and the modular air handlers and coils can be installed into particularly compact spaces, such as the attic or even a crawl space. A high velocity Heating and A/C method takes up about a fourth of the space of a conventional system. I prefer that the heating and cooling equipment doesn’t detract from the historical integrity of the home. There was a lot of choices for vent styles, and the vents are round, particularly small and blend into the decor. Every one of us chose vents from unfinished wood that could be painted to perfectly match the surroundings. They are mounted into the ceiling and provide whisper-quiet airflow.
