I prefer my Grandparents, as well as I admit that their aged farm home has a particular sense of charm to it, but I don’t prefer the inconsistent air quality. It doesn’t matter what season it is, you can’t expect to have the same air temperature from room to room at any given time. When the inevitable Winter time freeze arrives in August, the gas gas furnace as well as wood stove run in tandem. The areas downstairs near the stove as well as in the rooms with air vents close to the air handler for the gas furnace are nice as well as toasty. But walk anywhere upstairs as well as you feel love you’ve walked outside. My Grandparents have grown accustomed to this concern as well as get by on a area furnace setup in their upstairs dining room as well as an additional one running in the adjacent bathroom. But the walk from the dining room door, through the hallway, as well as down the stairs to the hot first floor is particularly chilly. I did some research on ways to improve my Grandparents’ Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C plan to make it more efficient as well as have better heat distribution in the Winter time as well as cool air in the summer. I learn that you can install dampers in ventilation systems that control how much treated air is sent to each individual room. For instance, if more of your heart is getting lost in the room closest to the gas furnace on the duct layout, dampers can be installed ahead of the vents in those nearby rooms. The dampers block additional heat from leaving the ducts in those location so it can continue traveling to the rest of the house. Now that their ventilation plan is replaced, my Grandparents have a much warmer upstairs. There’s still a bit of a temperature discrepancy because of the poor insulation in their aged house, but the improvement is immense.
