When our fiance as well as I purchased a historical home, every one of us were honestly unhappy with the portable heating as well as cooling units.
- Because the walls in the house are exceptionally slender as well as constructed of plaster, installing a conventional duct plan isn’t a viable option.
The former owners managed temperature control with window cooling systems as well as electric baseboard heaters. These heating as well as cooling units are noisy, unnlovely, inefficient as well as ineffective. In our local area, every one of us deal with Winter rapidly increasing temperatures below zero as well as excessive Summer heat as well as humidity. The condo was uncomfortable just about all year round. I finally consulted a local HVAC contractor for some help. He proposed the upgrade of a high-velocity HVAC system. The compact size of the device as well as flexibility of the ducts allow this type of plan to be retrofitted into existing homes without a huge renovation project. There’s no need to tear down walls or gut the home. The slender ducts can be snaked between beams as well as joints, as well as the modular air handlers as well as coils can be installed into honestly compact spaces, such as the attic or even a crawl space. A high velocity HVAC plan takes up about a second of the space of a conventional system. I like that the heating as well as cooling device doesn’t detract from the historical integrity of the home. There was a lot of choices for vent styles, as well as the vents are round, honestly small as well as 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 as well as deliver whisper-quiet airflow.
