Call me crazy, however I am fairly sure that people who own historic houses should not make a bunch of modern renovations to them.
I understand that everybody wants to live in a comfortable, energy-efficient home with all of the modern gadgets that we have come to expect.
I would never imagine that someone would choose to live without internet, TV, or Modern heating and cooling systems. Even if you were trying to maintain the integrity of an seriously ancient and historic property it would be unrealistic to sacrifice all of your comfort. That being said… I do not know if installing bulky mini chop ductless heating and cooling systems throughout the home is undoubtedly the best way to honor the workmanship and history of the facility. You see, I was recently looking for a modern apartment to live in when I viewed a historic Victorian home. It was absolutely gorgeous, as long as you did not look up and notice the mini chop ductless heating and cooling systems that they had installed throughout the building to give zone control heating and cooling. Apparently because there were several renters under one roof, the building owner wanted to give individual air temperature control units. I completely understand why she wanted to give separate air quality control systems to all the people. However, I do not assume that the air temperature devices that she chose blended in with the surroundings undoubtedly nicely. I am not saying her HVAC systems deterred me from taking the rental… But when it came to HVAC systems and indoor environments, I thought I could do better.
