When we bought this house, we wanted to restore it to its original design.
That plan came with a lot of renovation to take it back to what it once was.
This house was designed by a famous architect back in the 20’s. It’s built so well that the structure was the least of our worries. But the fact was that the house was designed before residential HVAC was readily available. That meant that we had to start over. The previous owner had sort of created a bit of hodge podge when it came to heating and cooling. There were window air conditioners and space heaters throughout the house. The region we live in doesn’t need much HVAC heating so I understood the space heaters. But the window air conditioners weren’t enough so someone put in a really basic central air conditioning unit. I’m sure it provided more HVAC cooling that the window units but it was an absolute eyesore. So that had to come out. The HVAC contractor we used is awesome and he was just so careful and meticulous with how he removed that old central air conditioning. But he was just so incredible when he replaced that air conditioning with a ductless multi split system. Those ductless heat pumps are placed perfectly. They are set up high on exterior walls and run perfectly with the lines of the rest of the place. And HVAC cooling we get from the ductless heat pumps is just simply outstanding. I’m really amazed that we get this sort of premium quality heating and air from such a small piece of heating and cooling equipment.
