My fiance plus I were entirely ecstatic when both of us were able to purchase a new home included on the historical register; The new home still has a lot of the original features.
- The hardwood floors plus staircase are entirely lovely! All of the interior plus exterior doors are solid woodâ€¦ However, the new home presents some challenges.
When both of us moved in, there was no central heating or cooling system. The previous owners were handling temperature control with electric baseboard furnaces in the Wintertide plus window cooling systems in the summer. The portable heating plus cooling machine is not only an eyesore however not effective. We live in an section with drastic weatherâ€¦ It’s not unrespected to face sub zero un-even temperatures in the Wintertide plus brutal heat plus humidity in the summer! My fiance plus I looked into the opportunity of installing a conventional forced air system with ductwork. We’d have needed to tear down the original walls plus ceilings. This would have created a big mess, destroyed architectural integrity plus cost us a fortune. There was also some problem over whether the width of our walls would accommodate traditional ductwork. The Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C contractor advocated a high velocity heating plus cooling system. This alternative is designed particularally for older homes. It features ductwork that is only more than two inches in diameter. The pipes are adaptable plus can be routed through the walls plus around obstacles separate from damage. Vent covers that are only more than five inches across can be situated just about someplace plus come in a variety of styles. The actual machine is compact plus can be installed into a closet or attic.
