I just purchased an old brick building on the main street of an old town. This old town was once many miles away from the nearest city. However, the town now serves as a bedroom community for the city. Interestingly enough, the rejuvenation brought on by this phenomena has been amazing. A entire downtown area which was almost a ghost town is now turning into a vibrant mix of people and ideas. Purchasing the three story brick building was part of my attempt to add to this interesting mix. The building was once a seed and supply company but has sat vacant for years. I am renovating the building into living spaces. The building never had any sort of formal HVAC system. Heat came by way of a pot bellied stove on the first floor. And, any cooling the place received came via the open window and a fan. There is no duct work of any kind in the entire building. I wondered what the most cost effective HVAC plan would be. I have a dear friend who is an HVAC contractor. He agreed to take an informal look and help me formulate some ideas. Well, he wasn’t in the building fifteen minutes before he felt he new the HVAC solution. My HVAC contractor friend suggested I go with a multi split heating and cooling system. The multi split HVAC system is able to deliver individual climate control to each unit without installing ducts. The multi split system has inside blower units which fit high on an exterior wall. Each of these units then connects to a condenser unit outside the building. Thus, each tenant will be able to have their own thermostat to meet their specific heating and cooling needs.
