HVAC Solutions for Historic Houses

Many of Jacksonville’s historic houses weren’t built to sustain the demands of a modern HVAC system. Maintaining comfortable temperatures might require more than just adding an HVAC to your old house. 

​​At David Gray, we specialize in providing heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) solutions tailored specifically to the unique needs of historic properties.

Instead, we offer comprehensive plumbing solutions tailored specifically to meet the unique needs of your old house’s plumbing problems. 

Pipe Replacement and Restoration

Over time, the plumbing systems in historic homes may deteriorate or become outdated, leading to issues such as leaks, corrosion, and reduced water pressure. Our licensed plumbers specialize in assessing the condition of existing pipes and recommending the most appropriate solutions for replacement or restoration.

Whether it’s updating outdated galvanized steel pipes or repairing damaged copper pipes, our team ensures that your plumbing system meets today’s safety standards. 

Plumbing Needs for Home Remodels

Renovating an old home in Jacksonville is a labor of love — but the process could result in a flood of plumbing-related problems. As you begin your renovation journey, consider the following needs that may arise: 

Upgrading old pipes: Many historic homes still have their original plumbing systems. These outdated systems are not only contributing to inefficiencies in your home, but they are also out of code and potentially unsafe. Modern plumbing allows for improved water flow, reduced risk of leaks and assurance that your home meets current building codes. 

Adding or moving fixtures: If you’re reconfiguring your home’s layout or adding new bathrooms or kitchens, you’ll need to plan for the installation or relocation of plumbing fixtures. This may involve running new pipes, installing additional drains, or rerouting existing plumbing lines. Our David Gray plumbing experts can help you get your dream layout, while still ensuring the comfort and charm of your home. 

Ensuring proper drainage: Proper drainage is crucial to prevent water damage and maintain the structural integrity of your historic home. Installing or updating drainage systems, such as sump pumps, can help protect your home from water infiltration.

Water Softener Installation

Hard water, characterized by high mineral content, can cause damage to plumbing fixtures over time. For historic homes, this can be a major issue for old pipes or appliances. At David Gray, we offer water softener installations tailored to meet the specific needs of your historic Jacksonville home. 

In addition to our water softener solutions, we recommend considering advanced filtration systems, such as Moen filtration system. These not only soften water but also ensure it is clean, tastes great, and is free from common contaminants. 

Here’s how a water softener or filtration system can benefit your property: 

  • Protect plumbing systems
  • Prevent limescale buildup 
  • Improve water quality and taste 
  • Increase appliance efficiency 

Our experienced technicians will assess your water quality, recommend the right system for your home, and ensure professional installation for lasting performance.

Providing Comfort in Every Season
