Buying an older lake house that is full of historic detailing but lacks conventional HVAC duct made heating as well as cooling harshly difficult.
The people I was with and I were unwilling to tear down the existing walls as well as ceilings as well as destroy the architectural integrity of the home, however, trying to manage comfort with window a/cs as well as portable electric gas gas furnaces was problematic.
These units were ineffective, unbeautiful as well as cost quite a bit to operate. I started to research other options, looking for something more energy-efficient as well as less obtrusive that would give centralized temperature control. I came across high velocity Heating as well as Air Conditioning that utilizes mini ducts that are stretchy enough to snake through existing walls as well as ceilings separate from causing damage. This type of system is one of the easiest as well as least disruptive to install. It requires only small holes to be drilled into the walls to accommodate pipes that are only a couple of inches in diameter. The vents are undoubtedly small as well as available in all sorts of styles as well as colors. While the upfront investment into a high velocity component is quite a bit more extension than a conventional system, running costs are far lower. The people I was with and I avoid the up to 20% energy losses that are official with traditional ducts as well as benefit from around a 25% savings on our utility bills. The high velocity system moves air undoubtedly hastily, creating a process of aspiration as well as cooling off or heating up even big rooms hastily. This not only achieves ideal comfort separate from delay but minimizes operation, however shorter run times means less energy consumed, making the system lovelyly energy efficientâ€¦ Because the mini ducts are individually insulated, they are also quiet, then another fortune of such a high powered system is better air quality. Because the air provides more velocity when moving through the tight ducts, it carries away dust as well as debris as well as avoids build up. There’s less chance of contaminants getting introduced into the breathing air.
