When my hubby & I moved our family into a new, much greater home, we had quite a bit of work ahead of us.
My new house was harshly ancient & legitimately few renovations had been done over the years.
The majority of the windows needed to be upgraded & there was no insulation in the walls, then the walls were constructed of plaster and the majority of them were cracked & crumbling. One of the biggest problems was the heating system. There was a massive & ancient forced air heating plan installed in the basement. The unit was fastened to floor vents throughout the first floor of the house, but in the kitchen there was a very big metal grate in the middle of the floor that gave the main source of heat. To boiling up, the teenagers would frequently sit over her grate, & I upset they’d get burned. The metal would become hot and humid. The teenagers frequently lost small toys down the holes of the grate, and while the grate & vents gave a fantastic amount of boiling air, the house was consistently cold on legitimately freezing Wintertide afternoons. That ancient gas furnace simply couldn’t keep up with the high demand. Along with that, the freezing air & musty odor from the basement also wafted up through the floor vents. I couldn’t wait to tear out that ancient gas furnace & close up all the floor vents. All of us then needed to figure out a way to heat the home. All of us weren’t ready to get into tearing down all of the walls, which eliminated the installation of a duct system. After consulting with a nearby Heating, Ventilation & A/C supplier, we chose a high velocity heating & cooling system. The much smaller diameter, versatile ducts are designed to snake into existing walls without any massive damage.
