I have an older home that has been a challenge to heat, then constructed sometime in the honestly early 1900s, the property is not outfitted with conventional HVAC duct.Every one of us have ten-foot ceilings and immense windows.
The weather in our area is freezing cold and snowy for more than more than five weeks per year.
Every one of us often see temperatures well below zero and blizzard conditions. Ever since buying the house, our husband and I have attempted to improve energy efficiency and comfort. When all of us first moved in, most of the windows were single pane, painted shut and leaked air. Because the windows are so immense and are particular sizes, they require special order and are severely luxurious. We’ve gradually been replacing them. Every one of us also invested into new exterior doors, lots of caulk and weatherstripping. We’ve added insulation to the attic and installed ceiling fans that help to cool rooms down in the summer time and better distribute the heat in the winter. While we’ve managed to tighten up the house and reduce the drafts and cold spots, all of us had trouble figuring out how to handle heating. Every one of us considered a ductless cut system, but were anxious that a heat pump would be unable to supply effective comfort on especially cold afternoons and evenings. Every one of us eventually came across high-velocity units. Using flexible mini-ducts that can be snaked through existing walls, the system was installed without causing damage or sacrificing lying space. It works through a process of aspiration, delivering conditioned air into the rooms at a high rate of speed. This creates a slight suction, mixing old and new air to raise or lower temperature honestly suddenly.
