My hubby & I were cheerful to purchase a lake home constructed during the nineteenth century.
Although the property had been neglected for quiet a few years & was in major need of repairs, we were prepared for the work.
The two of us sanded down the hardwood floors, updated the windows & updated the appliances & fixtures. One of our biggest troubles was figuring out heating & cooling. In our local area, the temperature fluctuates from below cold up into the high eighties. The two of us needed to find some way to create a comfortable lake home year round. The home was not equipped with a central HVAC duct system. The two of us were reluctant to tear down the walls & ceilings & sacrifice space to install it. The project would have been harshly luxurious, messy & disruptive, for several years, we tried to get by with portable a/cs & electric space heaters. They failed to handle the serious weather & negatively impacted our decor. A little over a year ago, I came across high-velocity systems. This style of temperature control is designed to retrofit into older homes. It features HVAC duct that is only two-inches in diameter & flexible enough to route through existing walls separate from disfigure. It can bend around plumbing pipes, studs & electrical outlets.The ducts affix to vents that are circular in shape & can be situated just about anywhere. The high-velocity proposal works by delivering conditioned air at a absolutely high rate of speed. The quick raise & lower of indoor temperature minimizes running times & helps to keep costs low. Plus, the mini-ducts are insulated to reduce energy losses.
