Older homes generally don’t have the same level of efficient heating systems as newer buildings. However, this doesn’t mean that they should be unable to achieve the same level of comfort. There are multiple methods available for the effective heating of a building. For older buildings, a retrofitted system may be the superior alternative to ensure that the building can be efficiently heated, without resulting in substantial disruption.
Traditional Duct Systems
In the more common methods for distributing heat throughout a home, a bulky duct system is required. This system allows the furnace to send heated air to the various rooms in the building in order to keep them comfortably heated. However, few older buildings were designed to meet the needs of a typical duct system. Implementing this kind of system can require significant amounts of remodeling, which can be an overwhelming, difficult undertaking. Alternative methods can be used to ensure that an older building can be heated to a comfortable degree, without requiring this substantial level of disruption to your existing structure.
The Solution for Older Buildings
Furnace retrofits are often the ideal solution for buildings that simply don’t have the space or capability for the installation of a typical duct system. These systems can help to preserve the original structure of the building, without sacrificing the level of comfort within the home. A retrofitted system often uses a miniature duct system in order to spread heated air throughout the building, which minimizes the likelihood of disruption to your home.
An older home should still be capable of being heated, even if they aren’t capable of using a traditional duct system. Our superior heating services can help to ensure that your building can maintain optimal comfort, without resulting in exorbitant energy expenses.
