We are restoring an older house and the HVAC is a challenge

My wife and I are working on restoring an older house here in town and the most challenging part up to this point is the HVAC system.

When we saw this house last year, we knew that it was the place for us.

It’s literally the prettiest house that either of us have ever seen. It has all of this gingerbread trim on it and the nicest garden and yard of any other house in the whole neighborhood. My wife decided that she was in love with this place and she begged me to go ahead and buy it. I had to agree with her that it’s one of the nicest houses around here. The only problem for us was all of the work that needed to be done on the house. We have done a lot of the structural work on the house but now we have gotten to the point where we are going to have to start working on the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. The house isn’t set up to host a central air conditioning system because it’s so old. The furnace that it currently has is this ancient oil furnace and so we really have a lot of work to do when it comes to the HVAC system. We are currently talking to an HVAC contractor here in town who deals with doing older houses. I guess he specializes in trying to maintain the integrity of the older homes while also updating them with high efficiency heating and cooling systems. I think we are going to love it when we are done.
