I have to agree. I was in an old historic church for a wedding a few years ago and they used the high velocity system for both heat and cool. During the ceremony it was quiet as most weddings are and when the air conditioning came on you could see motion on the fabric in the building but absolutely no noise. Properly designed and installed systems are very quiet.

Good link and they have an install video too. Freon lines still need to be run on the outside of the house etc and they are not cosmetic either. Looks like a good system IF installed properly.

LOL. Right now, I'm down 3 computers. I normally have 5 on almost all the time.

Lost the hard drive on 2 of them, and the power supply on the third.

Installing A/C in old house - Conventional vs. High Velocity


Thank you all for your advice regarding my AC options. We decided to install conventional on 2nd and 3rd floor with unit in attic. We might wait to do the 1st floor until we remodel the kitchen and swap out electric for gas stove /oven.
One debate we have now is regarding whether we should keep our cast iron radiators or go with hydro-air. Any thoughts on this?

Hydro air won't be as comfortable as your cast iron rads.
