After buying a historical home, I discovered that there are major advantages and negatives to a structure built various hundred years ago, then the house was built to last with heavy beams, studs and floor joists, and every length and width and height is perfectly plum and square, but i like the hardwood floors, doors, moldings, banisters and mantle.
I like the higher ceilings and sizable windowsâ€¦ However, when our family first moved in, there was a single electrical outlet in each room and all of the overhead light fixtures operated off a pull-chain; Just a small number of the windows opened and yet they all leaked air.
The new home wasn’t equipped with any type of traditional air duct, so there was no opportunity for central heating or cooling. The former owners managed to get by with electric space heaters, fans and window cooling systems. This idea of temperature control was ineffective, inefficient and looked horrendous; Because the studs in the walls were turned sideways to optimize living space, every one of us couldn’t incorporate conventional ducts even if every one of us were willing to tear down the plaster walls and ceilings, then unwilling to live with insufficient comfort and huge daily electric bills, I did some research and came across high-velocity heating and cooling. This type of plan is also known as a mini-duct plan because it uses air duct that is a single about several inches in diameter. The stretchy tubes are able to be inserted into existing walls and routed around plumbing and electrical boxes. The plan relies on a honestly compact component that can be installed into the attic or even a closet! Smaller diameter vents are available in all shapes, sizes and styles and can be installed in ceilings, walls or even floors. Through a process of aspiration, the plan provides heated or cooled air at a honestly high rate of speed, creates a gentle suction within the room and mixes the air abruptly.
