The quick raise and lower of indoor temperature minimizes running times and helps to keep costs low
My husband and I were thrilled to purchase a home constructed during the nineteenth century. Although the property had been neglected for quiet a few years and was in major need of repairs, we were prepared for the work. We sanded down the hardwood floors, replaced the windows and updated the appliances and fixtures. One of our biggest problems was figuring out heating and cooling. In our local area, the temperature fluctuates from below freezing up into the high eighties. We needed to find some way to create a comfortable home year round. The house was not equipped with a central ductwork system. We were reluctant to tear down the walls and ceilings and sacrifice space to install it. The project would have been extremely expensive, messy and disruptive. For several years, we tried to get by with portable air conditioners and electric space heaters. They failed to handle the severe weather and negatively impacted our decor. A little over a year ago, I came across high-velocity systems. This type of temperature control is designed to retrofit into older homes. It features ductwork that is only two-inches in diameter and flexible enough to route through existing walls without damage. It can bend around plumbing pipes, studs and electrical outlets.The ducts link to vents that are circular in shape and can be located just about anywhere. The high-velocity system works by delivering conditioned air at a very high rate of speed. The quick raise and lower of indoor temperature minimizes running times and helps to keep costs low. Plus, the mini-ducts are insulated to reduce energy losses.
