My husband and I always admired the big, outdated houses in the historical district of Orland Park! When my fantastic friend and I finally got the chance to purchase one of these gorgeous properties, my fantastic friend and I didn’t hesitate, but the house features original woodwork, including the floors, doors, moldings and staircase.
There are mullioned windows, ornate wainscotting and decorative crown molding.
While my fantastic friend and I are legitimately blissful with our home, it has presented some issues. The weather in Orland Park is always a challenge. The conditions require both heating and cooling, because our house was built during the mid 1760s, it lacks conventional HVAC duct. The former owners were relying on a combination of window cooling systems and box fans in the summer time and electric baseboard boilers in the winter, then not only was the assortment of portable device an eyupore, however it failed to keep up with demand. The residing space was boiling and sticky or freezing frosty for most of the year. My husband and I were unwilling to destroy the architectural integrity of the home for the sake of installing HVAC duct, i did some research and learned about high-velocity systems. This option is designed to retrofit into older homes without disruption. The tscheme innovation is the mini-ducts that are only two-inches in diameter and adjustable enough to be routed through existing walls. They are able to accommodate plumbing pipes, power lines and studs. The mini-ducts connect to circular-shaped vents that are only six inches in diameter and can be installed almost anywhere in the room. The high-velocity heating system doesn’t detract from our decor or the charm of the house and yet provides perfect year round comfort.
