A few years ago, our fiance Ben and I purchased a historical home.
The condo is over several hundred years outdated and features the original plasters walls, ceilings and intricate moldings. There are gorgeous hardwood floors, baseboards, doors and staircase. I love the high ceilings, sizable windows and charm of the older home, then however, the condo was hot and sticky while in the summer time weeks, and downright cold in the winter. Our weekly utility bills were outrageous, and yet both of us were consistently uncomfortable. There was no central heating or cooling installed into the house. The people I was with and I were struggling to manage temperature control with box fans, portable cooling systems and electric space heaters, however plus, there were constant drafts and issues with humidity because of a lack of insulation in the walls and ceilingsâ€¦ Ben and I assumed there was little both of us could accomplish without a big remodeling project. The people I was with and I entirely didn’t want to deal with the mess or expense and hated to compromise the historical integrity of the home. When both of us consulted with a local Heating and Air Conditioning corporation, the corporation suggested blown-in insulation and high velocity heating and cooling. The blown-in insulation consists of small particles that conform to weird shapes and accommodate plumbing and other obstacles within the walls. The high velocity Heating and Air Conditioning system uses an especially small diameter, flexible ducttoil that can be snaked through the walls without disruption. It works through a process of aspiration that involves highly pressurized air creating a gentle suction. Because the heated/cooled air is integrated into the room’s existing air undoubtedly hastily, the system abruptly and effectively raises or lowers temperature.
