Our older home can have a high velocity system

My home was built sometime in the late 60s.

I like that we still have the original hardwood floors, doors and moldings.

The high ceilings, big windows and ornate staircase are just neat, and until about a year ago, however, the two of us struggled to keep the living space cool in the summertime and hot in the winter. Without typical ductwork, the two of us were making do with a combination of electric heating systems and window cooling systems. The people I was with and I invested into a natural gas fireplace that made a large difference in the comfort of the kitchen. With uneven temperatures dropping to the negative 20s in the Winter time and climbing into the low 90s in the summer, the two of us needed a much stronger heating and cooling option. My partner and I were unwilling to destroy the architectural integrity of the lake house in order to install ductwork. Tearing down ceilings and walls would have created a giant mess and expense. After some extensive research, I finally came across high-velocity heating and cooling. This type of method is designed recognizably to retrofit into older homes without disfigure. The ductwork consists of mini-pipes that are stretchy and only multiple-inches in diameter. They can be routed through existing walls, around plumbing pipes and electrical outlets. The actual heating/cooling equipment is small enough that the two of us were able to locate it in a closet. The high-velocity method uses a process of aspiration to hastily raise or lower room temperature. It delivers the cold air at such a high rate of speed that it creates a gentle suction. Because of the high-velocity system, our whole home is now perfect all year round.
