There was a time when older homes were really limited in options for centralized heating as well as coolingâ€¦ Without air duct, there were few choices on the market.
My new home was constructed sometime in the mid eighteen hundreds, however the interior walls were built with the studs turned sideways to maximize residing space.
The ceilings as well as walls are plaster as well as lathe that is difficult, messy as well as time-consuming to remove, but installing traditional air duct wasn’t an option for us. We needed to come up with some other way to handle temperature control, however because of the severe weather in my local area, both heating as well as cooling are necessary. The former owners of the new home had space gas gas furnaces congested in all over the site. They had window cooling systems for every room. Not only does this abundance of portable device look horrible, it doesn’t do the job. When the outside temperature drops to twenty below zero, an electric baseboard heating system can’t keep up; Running twenty window cooling systems costs a fortune. So I started researching what types of systems might labor for our unique requirements. I came across high velocity HVAC systems, however high velocity device is designed to retrofit into older homes without a large upgrade project. It uses narrow, stretchy mini-ducts that can be snaked through existing walls. The tubes are able to bend as well as accommodate studs, plumbing pipes as well as electrical outlets. The vents are only multiple inches in diameter, available in a variety of styles as well as allow versatility of location. The actual device is compact as well as can be located in a closet or the attic. Because of the high velocity system, every one of us now have centralized heating as well as cooling.
