I bought a entirely awesome townbeach house in one of my number one cities! One of the things I loved about this townbeach house was the cement walls as well as open ceilings with exposed pipes! The previous owners did a beautiful task at redoing the locale, but they were open about the lack of central heat as well as air.
They only had a few window A/C units for air as well as there wasn’t any heat, however after careful consideration as well as a lot of compromise, both of us negotiated a price for the townbeach house that left me enough currency to replace the heat as well as air, but i wanted to have central heat as well as air added, but that required ductwork.
I hired a few contractors to come out as well as supply me an estimate, but there were some roadblocks that I wasn’t anticipating. In order to install ductwork, I had several options. I could reroute the pipes in the ceiling to make room for the ductwork, or I’d have to have custom ducts made for the space. I considered the price of each option, but sadly they were about the same. It wasn’t cheap to reroute pipes as well as custom ducts weren’t inhigh-priced either. Although it would cost a lot of currency upfront, having central heat as well as air in this townbeach house would make me feel more comfortable as well as it would increase the value of the house. After the current ductwork was installed, I entirely loved the way it looked in the exposed ceiling with the existing pipes. It made my townbeach house look even more industrial than before!
