High velocity air conditioning and heating is perfect for an older home

Older homes can be difficult to efficiently and effectively temperature control.

Homeowners were once forced to choose between architectural integrity and achieving a comfortable home. Installing traditional ductwork is a disruptive project that can upset design, compromise aesthetics and cost a fortune. Thanks to the development of high velocity heating and cooling systems, there is a non-intrusive alternative. High velocity systems rely on a process called aspiration, creating a gentle suction that mixes the air very quickly and maintains even temperatures in every room. Flexible mini ducts are only a few inches in diameter and able to be inserted inside existing walls and snaked around joists without damage. Plus, the air handlers are super compact and can be tucked out of sight into tight spaces. High velocity systems are designed to operate quietly. The ducts include an exterior insulation that combats the noise caused by the high-velocity rush of heated and cooled air. This also helps to avoid air leaks. While conventional ductwork tends to sacrifice approximately 25% of energy through holes and cracks, a high velocity system delivers 100% of the heated and cooled air. Featuring high-tech cooling coils, most high velocity units are extremely good at removing moisture from the air. By maintaining lower humidity, the home feels comfortable at higher thermostat settings. Another benefit is that the vents incorporate into the room without detracting from appearance. The vents are extremely small and can be installed into walls, ceilings and floors. They can be painted or stained to match the decor and come in a variety of shapes and styles.
