After buying a historical home, I discovered that there are major advantages plus setbacks to a structure built multiple hundred years ago.
The home was built to last with heavy beams, studs plus floor joists, plus every length plus width plus height is perfectly plum plus square, but i care about the hardwood floors, doors, moldings, banisters plus mantle.
I love the higher ceilings plus big windows, and however, when my family first moved in, there was one electrical outlet in each room plus all of the overhead light fixtures operated off a pull-chain, and only a couple of the windows opened plus yet they all leaked air. The home wasn’t equipped with any type of traditional ductwork, so there was no opportunity for central heating or cooling. The former owners managed to get by with electric space heaters, fans plus window A/Cs. This system of temperature control was ineffective, inefficient plus looked horrendous. Because the studs in the walls were turned sideways to optimize residing space, every one of us couldn’t incorporate conventional ducts even if every one of us were willing to tear down the plaster walls plus ceilings; Unwilling to live with insufficient comfort plus big bi-weekly electric bills, I did some research plus came across high-velocity heating plus cooling. This type of system is also known as a mini-duct system because it uses ductwork that is one about more than two inches in diameter. The versatile tubes are able to be inserted into existing walls plus routed around plumbing plus electrical boxes. The system relies on a really compact component that can be installed into the attic or even a closet, smaller diameter vents are available in all shapes, sizes plus styles plus can be installed in ceilings, walls or even floors. Through a process of aspiration, the system provides heated or cooled air at a really high rate of speed, creates a gentle suction within the room plus mixes the air hastily.
