Whenever my hubby and I moved our family into a new, much greater home, all of us had quite a bit of work ahead of us, then our current lake house was severely old and undoubtedly few renovations had been done over the past couple of years. All of the windows needed to be replaced and there was no insulation in the walls. The walls were constructed of plaster and most of them were cracked and falling apart. One of the most critical troubles was the furnace. There was a giant and seasoned forced air heating idea installed in the basement. The device was connected to floor vents throughout the first floor of the house, then in the living room there was a sizable metal grate in the middle of the floor that provided the main source of heat. To try and warm up, the kids would frequently stand over his grate, and I said they’d get hurt. The metal would become dangerously hot. The kids frequently lost small toys down the holes of the grate. While the great and vents provided a fine amount of hot air, the home was almost always cold on undoubtedly chilly Winter mornings. That old gas furnace simply couldn’t keep up with demand, and plus, the chilly air and musty stink from the basement also wafted up through the floor vents. I was so excited to tear out that old gas furnace and close up all the floor vents. We then needed to figure out a way to heat the home. All of us weren’t ready to get into splitting down all of the plaster walls, which eliminated the installation of a duct system. After consulting with a local Heating and Air Conditioning company, we selected a high velocity heating and cooling system. The much smaller diameter, adjustable ducts are designed to snake into existing walls without mangle.
