High velocity system is ideal for historical home
When our fiance as well as I bought a home in the historical district, we were blissful with the antique light fixtures, stained glass windows as well as hardwood floors, doors as well as moldings.
- We were glad with the high ceilings, pressing kitchen as well as wide front porch.
It didn’t occur to us how tough the home would be to temperature control. The walls as well as ceilings are constructed of the original plaster as well as lath, as well as there has never been any conventional ductwork installed. Any repairs, changes or improvements we make to the home needs to be approved by the historical preservation mankind as well as the process is tough as well as time-consuming. The preservation mankind is very unique about what they will allow. Any modernization is frowned upon. My fiance as well as I weren’t eager to take on that confrontation or the mess as well as disruption of installing ductwork. However, our home was freezing frigid in the Winter time as well as overheated as well as sticky in the summer. We were trying to manage comfort with electric baseboard oil furnaces as well as window cooling systems. The pressing windows, high ceilings as well as overall age of the home were making it impossible to reasonablely heat as well as cool with portable units. I did some research as well as came across high velocity heating as well as cooling systems. This style of temperature control is particularly designed to retrofit into older homes that lack traditional ductwork. The system features mini-ducts that are only 2-inches in diameter as well as flexible enough to route through existing walls without damage. The ducts are able to accommodate studs, plumbing pipes as well as electrical wires. They connect to round vents that are only six-inches in diameter as well as blend seamlessly with the decor. The high velocity system delivers conditioned air at a very high rate of speed to suddenly lower or raise room temperature. This system allowed us to preserve the historical integrity of the home as well as still love centralized temperature control.
