The house was on the list as unfinished and installing the heating system after the act was quite a job. There is a similar problem if you try to escape without central air conditioning. Yes, the wooden houses remain colder in the summer, but this "dog days" in August can bring you a completely miserable night, and a potential buyer is probably not as tolerant as the original owner.
In fact, our mortgage company would not consider granting a construction loan if we do not include central air conditioning. If you want to keep the space of the pipe, you can use convection heating with the same railway network that also operates the air conditioner. Propane or petroleum is often the preferred fuels in rural areas.
If the space of your inner wall is limited, there are companies that specialize in very small high-pressure ducts that closely match; These systems generally require much higher initial installation cost. If you use traditional channels, you must keep the corners to a minimum so that you can make the walls of the first floor so that the air is easily transported to the second floor.
An open floor plan offers a challenge because you have to make sure that the rooms are heated upstairs in any way and that you have both a forward and a return air ventilation to generate sufficient airflow.
If you want to use interior walls of complete trunks, look for another way to control the pipes, electricity and pipes. We made this mistake and there are not enough ventilation channels in our room. The air is charged in the summer, even with the windows open.
Where are the ventilation openings going? Because all our exterior walls are complete trunks, many of our ventilation openings are placed on the floor. If your interior walls are gypsum or tongue and groove, you can place the openings where they are normally. One thing I wanted to do was to discuss the plan with the HVAC contractor because he placed the vents in places that I found most unpleasant.
Sometimes it can be helped, and sometimes it cannot. If you have an energetic mentality and prefer to keep your thermostat to a minimum, you will find that the southern side of the log house is warmer than the lighting in the north.
Since the sun tends to sink closer to the horizon on a winter's afternoon, it is beneficial to place large windows to the south; During the summer, the sun will cross the roof so that it does not overheat your home.
However, it is possible that the north side of your house, which has no direct sunlight, can be considerably cooler. The best solution is to install underfloor heating (if you can afford it). Although this system requires a boiler instead of a stove, the heating on the floor distributes heat evenly throughout the house and eliminates blue to the north.
For underfloor heating, you should always keep the thermostat stable. The system is not designed to be rejected at work. You can also use the boiler to heat the hot water, so no boiler is needed. On the other hand, you still need to install cables for the air conditioning.
In general, the same considerations apply as in the regular design. We thought we could continue with only one heating and cooling zones, but in retrospect, two zones had solved many problems. In the long run it is cheaper to do it well. Replacing a start login will not be easy!
