A Hooray For High-Velocity Air Conditioners
A Hooray For High-Velocity Air Conditioners: Loosen up. Even if you have an older house, you don’t have to resign yourself to living without the comforts of central air-conditioning. A new innovation called high-velocity air-conditioning can be added to virtually any type of home-even those without existing ductwork.
Just how It Functions
Likewise called “mini-duct” systems, high-velocity air-conditioning typically makes use of an outside compressor to cool down the air, combined with a high-pressure blower (normally mounted in the attic room).
As opposed to bulky steel ductwork, this technology, created by SpacePak, uses adaptable tubes just 2 inches in diameter. The insulated tubes can be threaded behind wall surfaces or inside closets without harmful sheetrock or plaster. This makes the system much quieter than air-conditioning with standard metal ductwork.
A mini-duct system likewise evaporates the air better. The high-pressure blower presses the air and allows it to be touching the air conditioning coils longer-which minimizes the temperature as well as removes extra humidity.
