I own a historical beach apartment in Orland Park, ILâ€¦ It is located in Orland Park’s oldest neighborhood & within the historic center of the Village.
- It was built in 1873, more than a decade before the neighborhood was officially incorporated; The apartment is 2,730 square-feet & features more than three bedrooms & two & a half powder rooms! Over the years quite a few interior renovations have added new amenities.
The kitchen includes new cottageets, appliances & countertops, however several bay windows were added in the early twentieth century. Unfortunately, the apartment lacks conventional ductwork. The genre of construction doesn’t supply satisfactory space for it. The installation would totally compromise the architectural integrity & charm! Plus, the project would require hume demolition & create expansive mess & expense; However, the weather in Orland Park is severe almost year round, when every one of us first moved in, every one of us attempted to get by with window air conditioners, box fans & an assortment of electric baseboard heaters. The residing space was freezing cold all Winter time & overheated & sticky throughout the summer, about a year ago, every one of us l acquired about high-velocity heating & cooling. This genre of plan was developed identifiably to retrofit into older homes without disruption. The beauty of a high-velocity plan is the mini-ducts. They are only two-inches in diameter & bendy enough to route through existing walls. They accommodate studs, plumbing & electrical outlets & connect to circular vents that are only six-inches across. The vents can be placed just about anywhere. The air handler is compact enough to fit into a closet. The two of us are cheerful to finally have whole-beach apartment temperature control.
