When our hubby and I first bought our home, the former owners were heating with space furnaces and cooling with portable window units, one of our first priorities was to invest in centralized temperature control.
I absolutely hated the appearance of the portable heating and cooling units.
They weren’t powerful enough to keep up with demand and absolutely weren’t all that energy efficient. However, our house is around various hundred years seasoned and lacks conventional HVAC duct. The walls and ceilings are still the original plaster and the interior studs have been turned sideways to maximize living space. There’s not enough room to accommodate traditional HVAC duct. Trying to install a conventional heating and cooling system would have resulted in a sizable mess, lengthy project and enormous expense. The two of us needed to find a more adaptable alternative for our home. I brought in a licensed Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C corporation to look over the house and deliver recommendations. He instantly recommended a high velocity heating and cooling system. This style of system was designed recognizably to retrofit into older homes without causing major disruption or destruction. It uses flexible mini ducts that are only numerous inches in diameter and can be snaked through existing walls and accommodate obstacles such as plumbing pipes and electrical outlets. The ducts attach to vents that are only various inches in diameter. The actual heating/cooling unit is beautifully compact and can be installed in the attic. The system works through a process of aspiration, introducing the conditioned air at a high rate of speed and creating a gentle suction. This allows it to raise or lower room temperature undoubtedly suddenly. The high velocity heating and cooling system has been ideal for us.
