Sila Blue Swoosh - Repair Services

Solutions for Older Homes with Radiator or Baseboard Heating

At Sila, we appreciate the details that give older homes their unique beauty. But adding central AC while preserving those special features presents special challenges: lack of existing ductwork, limited working space, and inexperienced contractors. Sila has three decades of expertise serving older homes. So whether its a replacement or installation, service or repair, you can have absolute confidence that we'll apply the skill, precision, and respect your home deserves--detail for detail.

Central AC with High Velocity

For older homes without existing ductwork, Sila's high velocity central AC could be your perfect solution. A single hidden air handler pushes cold air to multiple vents, and since it's 1/10th the size of a traditional AC system, high velocity AC won't compromise the architectural integrity of your home. Sila has installed more high velocity AC systems than any other company in the U.S.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often do I need to tune-up my air conditioning system? 

Routine annual air conditioning and annual heating maintenance is the key to keeping your system running at its highest efficiency, keeping your utility bills in check and improving its life expectancy. Left unchecked, minor issues can lead to loss of efficiency, premature breakdown of components and a shorter lifespan. Annual service may also be a requirement to keep your system warranty valid. Many manufacturers state on warranty documentation that installation and maintenance by a licensed HVAC service provider are required as part of the warranty conditions.

Do I need to add refrigerant to my AC system every year? 

You should not have to. Refrigerant systems are closed loops and should not lose any capacity unless there is a leak or an issue with the system.

Can I add central air conditioning to my home that has radiator or baseboard heat? 

Yes. Sila specializes in adding central air conditioning to homes with radiator and baseboard heat. From high-velocity small duct systems to ductless mini splits, a Sila comfort advisor can provide a free assessment of your home to determine your options. No more window units!

Can I add a thermostat or zone for a specific area? 

Absolutely. We help optimize the heating and cooling for our customers so they can control their HVAC systems with multiple zones or temperature sensors.

Can I zone my existing air conditioning system? 

Some systems can be retroactively zoned. A Sila comfort advisor can provide a free assessment of your system to determine your options.

Do ductless mini splits offer heating and cooling capabilities? 

Yes. We offer mini-split systems that handle both heating and air conditioning and keep your home just the perfect temperature!
