Old Home? Check Out the HVAC Options for Old Houses

August 6, 2019 | Blog

When you have an older home, going with the latest heating and cooling system might not be the most suitable option. The way that old homes are built can make it harder for modern HVAC systems to keep them warm or cool as needed. Keep the following HVAC options for old houses in mind, so your house can stay comfortable throughout the year.

Ductless Mini-Split HVAC Systems

These systems provide a way to have an HVAC system installed without having to worry about your home’s ductwork. A ductless mini-split HVAC system involves the use of air handling units inside and an outdoor heat pump to heat and cool homes. The interior units can go on walls or ceilings in order to provide rooms or areas with warm or cool air as needed. This type of system offers zoned cooling and heating, which gives you greater control over the interior temperature in different areas. This can help you heat or cool your old home more efficiently.

High Velocity HVAC Systems

High velocity HVAC systems are ideal when you have an older home that doesn’t have larger ducts. These systems use smaller ducts that are flexible, which allows HVAC technicians to easily place them inside walls. When you have a high velocity HVAC system installed, you don’t have to worry about having large holes cut into your walls in order to have these ducts put in place. These systems typically produce less noise than traditional central air conditioners.

VRF HVAC Systems

HVAC options for old houses also include VRF HVAC systems. These are ductless systems, which make them a good option for homeowners who want to avoid having major ductwork installations or changes done. These systems use refrigerant lines and indoor fan coil units to keep homes cool or warm as needed. Similar to ductless mini-split systems, VRF systems offer zoned cooling and heating, which is a convenient way to improve energy efficiency in larger homes.

Great Company

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
