Can I Have Modern HVAC Systems Installed in an Historic House?

Savannah is renowned for its history and its beautiful historical homes. It can be a challenge to add modern heating and cooling to an older home while conducting an historic renovation in Savannah, but he good news is that there are HVAC options available that can provide your older home with whole-home heating and cooling, and AAction Air has the expertise and knowledge to help you design and install an HVAC system that will provide the comfort you need while retaining the beauty and charm of your historical property.

HVAC Design for Historical Buildings

The first important step for any new HVAC system installation in an historical building is to create and design a plan for the system. Knowing the lay out and operation of the HVAC system ahead of time goes a long way toward ensuring the installation process runs smoothly, and that no part of the building’s structure or design is compromised in any way. AAction Air has installed HVAC systems into many historical properties, and we can design and install a system that will keep you comfortable while preserving the historical integrity of your building.

Goals of Historical HVAC Design for an Historical Property:

There are four goals to keep in mind when designing an HVAC system for an historical property:

  • Minimize the visual disruption – part of the draw of historical buildings is how they look. No one wants to mar a beautiful parlor room with an oversized heating or cooling device, so it’s important to keep this in mind while designing the system.
  • Keep it quiet – a loud heating or cooling device can be just as distracting from the atmosphere of an historic home as a visually disruptive one. There are several HVAC system choices available for owners of historical properties that can alleviate both of these potential problems.
  • Energy efficiency – older homes can be challenging to keep comfortable, so energy efficiency should be a priority when designing an HVAC system in order to achieve comfort without having exorbitantly high monthly energy bills.
  • Easily accessible system – making the system as simple as possible makes it easier to maintain and repair. No one wants to send their technician crawling through tight spaces if he/she can help it, and potential issues like this can be addressed during the design stage.

Historic renovation in Savannah calls for expertise, knowledge and experience, and this is especially true when installing an HVAC system into an historical property. Don’t trust this installation to just anyone: hire professionals who are known for their work with historical buildings, including design, planning and installation.
