A Hooray For High-Velocity Air Conditioners

Chill out. Even if you have an older home, you don’t need to resign yourself to living without the conveniences of main air-conditioning. A new innovation called high-velocity air-conditioning can be added to practically any home-even those without existing ductwork.

How It Works

Likewise called “mini-duct” systems, high-velocity air-conditioning typically utilizes an outdoor compressor to cool the air, combined with a high-pressure blower (generally installed in the attic).

Instead of bulky metal ductwork, this innovation, established by SpacePak, utilizes versatile tubing just two inches in diameter. The insulated tubes can be threaded behind walls or inside storage rooms without destructive sheetrock or plaster. This makes the system much quieter than air-conditioning through conventional metal ductwork.

A mini-duct system likewise dehumidifies the air more effectively. The high-pressure blower compresses the air and enables it to be in contact with the cooling coils longer-which lowers the temperature and removes more humidity.

It’s All Central

In fact, “high-velocity” and mini-duct” systems are simply various names for the same kind of super-efficient and comfortable main air-conditioning systems. These systems are very quiet, distribute the cool air evenly throughout your home and dehumidify extremely effectively.

The words “high speed” and “pressure” may make you believe these systems are noisy. Actually, you can hardly hear them running and there is no air flow sound at the tiny outlets.

In two-story homes, the mini-ducts are run down from the attic through the corners of the storage rooms or inside walls to the very first floor. In a single-story home, the whole system lies in the attic with outlets in the ceiling below.

SpacePak’s mini-duct systems make use of regular, high-efficiency, outside air-conditioning compressor units. With this mini-duct system, cool air blows out from tiny two-inch openings in the ceiling or high on the walls.
