I know that this house has quite an interesting history, but I’m not sure that I’ll ever understand what people were thinking when they were building additions on it.
Apparently, it used to be a actually small residential house with a single couple living in it.
Then, the couple started procreatingâ€¦ Somehow, they finished making out several kids and had to fit most people inside the 1000 square foot home. The only solution was to start expanding the residence to make more space. This is how we wound up with such weird lighting and electrical work, and certainally bad indoor air quality. The original structure of this house was outfitted with a central heating and cooling proposal that served numerous of the bedrooms. As the house was continually expanded, the air duct proposal also had to be extended to bring warm and cold air into the newly furnished spaces. Apparently, this air duct extension and Heating, Ventilation and A/C expansion wasn’t performed by the brightest bulbs in the boxâ€¦ Our air duct proposal is a nonsensical labyrinth of extraneous ductwork. They extended the air ducts into a single room, and later extended the air passageway from that distant point onward. This means, there is a general funneling effect as far as the indoor air quality as it moves through the air duct maze and into the house. Two of the rooms have amazing indoor air temperature control but the air quality in the rest of the house suddenly declines. Whenever the central heating and cooling proposal is running, there is a drastic temperature gradient from a single end of the house to the other. Short of hiring an Heating, Ventilation and A/C company to tear out all of the ductwork and reinstall it for energy efficient air dispersal, I’m not sure what we can do to improve the air quality; Right now, it’s cheaper just to have separate heating and cooling devices in each room.
