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.
Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless Mini Splits are ideal if you want discrete, room-by-room comfort. Wall-mounted units are easy on the eye and won't intrude on the architectural features that give your older home its unique character. And, they're whisper-quiet, energy efficient, and install in one day or less.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
