Why Updating an HVAC System for Historic Homes Is Crucial

Nearly 90% of all homes in the U.S. have some sort of air conditioning system. They are a vital part of any home and they help to keep our air clean and our temperature regulated.

If you live in a historic building or home, you might be wondering whether or not you should consider updating your HVAC system. Here is why that is not only recommended but absolutely essential.

Benefits of Updating HVAC System

A functioning HVAC system is absolutely crucial to being comfortable and staying safe within your own home. You might be wondering whether you really need to go through all the effort of getting a brand-new system installed.

Let’s look at why HVAC repairs and upgrades are so important for historic buildings.

Improved Efficiency

If you live somewhere that is prone to having intensely hot summers or very cold winters, you will know the importance of having a properly maintained HVAC system. Older HVAC systems in historical homes will need updating during the remodeling process so that you can have a much more efficient system.

Newer homes are designed to be more climate efficient and so their HVAC systems do not have to do so much work, this is not the case with more historic buildings. Updating your HVAC system is the only way to make sure that you can keep your house at the ideal temperature all year round.

Better Health

A well-functioning HVAC system is not just about comfort, it is important for health. One of the secondary functions of a good HVAC system is to filter out potentially harmful contaminants and microbes in the air and give you clean and pure air within the home at all times.

Over time though, HVAC systems will become less and less effective at doing this. If your HVAC system has not been updated for a very long time, then it is likely that it had stopped properly filtering the air you breathe.

Get in touch with your local HVAC technician to come and update your system so that you can get back to breathing fresh air all the time.


Old houses make a lot of noise, and an old HVAC system is going to be very noisy indeed. When you are remodeling your home, you want a result that is going to end up giving you a real sense of peace and quiet. Updating your HVAC system is one way to achieve this.

The one place you want to avoid being bugged by noise pollution is your own home, get yourself a new HVAC system to bring some peace and quiet back into your life.

Better Safety

Historic buildings and houses are very aesthetically pleasing, but they are not always the safest places in the world. Outdated systems are liable to fail and cause many safety issues.

This is especially important when it comes to an HVAC system that often runs on gas. Do not take the safety risk of having an old and rotting system in your home. Get it updated and sleep soundly in the knowledge that you have got a brand-new and up-to-scratch HVAC system.
