Getting approval for high-velocity system replacement

When my wife and I purchased an older home, all of us were glad by the wide front porch, big windows, high ceilings and hardwood flooring.

  • All of us had no system of the many challenges of a historical home.

Because the beach house is located in an part that is considered a historic district, all of us can’t make any swings to the property without the approval of the historical preservation counsel. All of us need to ask permission to replace windows, repair the roof, paint the porch or make any improvements, then every remodeling or repair project is a lot more work, effort and cost because all of us are required to maintain the historical integrity of the home. It’s hard to find businesss who are qualified and willing to work within the restrictions. One of the biggest challenges was temperature control. The beach house is not outfitted with a centralized duct system. It’s impossible to heat and cool effectively with space heating systems and window cooling systems. I did some research and discovered high-velocity heating and cooling. The system is designed certainly to retrofit into older homes without causing disfigure. It uses flexible, mini-ducts that can be installed into the existing walls and routed around obstacles such as studs and plumbing. The vents are round, only many inches across and allow freedom of mounting location. It took myself and others nearly several weeks to meet with the preservation counsel, supply tons of paperwork and finally get their approval to have the system installed. The project caused no upheaval to the current home yet has made a big difference in our comfort. We’re now able to adjust a control device and care about the ideal year round temperature in every room.
