Keeping Historic Buildings Warm and Cool
Central/Mid-Michigan is full of history. Not only is Detroit considered by many to be the birthplace of America’s great automotive age, but the entire area – first settled by Europeans in the late 18th and early 19th centuries – is full of historic properties.
As a result, beautiful, historic buildings abound and many of their owners are in the process of restoring them to their glory.
Carter-Mechanical Restores the HVAC Systems of These Treasured Buildings
Take, for example, the City Flats Hotel in Port Huron. We’ve completed installing new heating and cooling systems for this boutique hotel located in the historic Michigan National Bank building at the corner of the Black River and Military Street.
From the smallest job to the largest, we are the ones to call for any HVAC in historic homes and businesses.
We even maintain the in-wall heating systems for this historic (1902) Airbnb cottage apartment located with a St. Clair River view.
We’re renovating the heating system in our own new headquarters at 136 S. Main Street in Yale, Michigan. This is a labor of love and a work in progress showing great strides entering the new decade. We are proud to be helping with the revitalization of Main Street in Yale.
Perhaps our biggest and “most historical” HVAC renovation was the gorgeous circa 1894 Whitney Mansion in Detroit.
The Art of Restoring Heating and Air Condition Systems in Older Buildings
Many older buildings have HVAC systems that were slapped together haphazardly over the years because – obviously – they were built before central air and heating systems were invented.
What’s more, many older buildings designated as historic are protected as such and must see that any renovations adhere to exacting historic conservation rules.
We personally love old buildings – we moved our headquarters into one, after all! – and so we take great pride in following any directions and guidelines as dictated by historic preservationists when we’ve been engaged to renovate or replace heating and cooling systems in older buildings, whether they are a private home or business. And we make it a firm point to do so even if the older building hasn’t received official historic status.
