My beach house is approximately multiple hundred years old, & we’ve spent a wonderful deal of time, money & effort making updates. All of the electrical wirings was seasoned, unsafe & needed to be completely updated. The plumbing pipes & drains were corroded, leaked, & also needed to be totally retrofitted. My spouse & I tore down all of the outdated plaster & lath walls, providing easy access, then added insulation & put up drywall. Our greatest challenge was figuring out how to heat the home. Living in the northeastern area of the country, both of us rely on some type of heating system for approximately more than five to several months of the year. With temperatures often dipping below zero, the heating system needs to be powerful, dependable & energy efficient. Because the studs in the beach house are turned sideways to allow for more living space, they do not accommodate traditional HVAC duct. Every one of us ended up installing multiple strange types of heating systems in the multiple parts of the house. A natural gas fireplace handles the heating demands of the living & kitchen area. The fireplace is both appealing & effective, & puts out a wonderful deal of heat. Every one of us is able to make adjustments with a cordless remote, & it operates undoubtedly quietly, providing the look of real flames. In the kitchen, both of us have installed a ventless gas heater, which is compact however quite powerful. While it keeps the kitchen nice & warm, the small heating system seems to run always & significantly raises the cost of biweekly energy bills. Part of the problem is that the ventless heating system is a single phase unit, meaning it either operates at maximum capacity or is completely shut off.
