If you have a home that does not have cooling, installing new air conditioning can be a challenge. Adding traditional ductwork can require remodeling and extensive work in your home. Today, there is another type of air conditioning that can be used in existing homes and for tight spaces. High velocity air conditioning uses forced-air in a smaller system of ducts. Here are some features that you will get with the installation of one of these air conditioning systems:
1. Compact Ductwork That Fits In Any Wall
One of the biggest benefits of high velocity air conditioning is the compact ductwork. These ducts are only a few inches wide and can be installed in almost any wall. This makes them a great solution to save space. If you are retrofitting an older home with AC, the compact ducts can be installed in walls just like wiring, plumbing and other mechanical installations. The vents for the ducts are also compact outlets that are hardly noticeable. This can give you more space and less worry about covering vents.
2. Plenums That Can Be Installed In Minimal Space
The plenums for air conditioning are the boxes that distribute air through the network of ducts in your home. These can be bulky with a conventional HVAC system. With a compact system, the plenum will be no bigger than a conventional duct and occupy very little space. They can be installed in almost any free space your have, such as in an attic, closet or in a crawl space. The plenum of your system is the only part that will need to have space to be installed.
3. Improved Humidity And Air Quality With Compact Systems
Compact air conditioning systems have other benefits. With the high velocity design, they are also extremely efficient at removing humidity in your home. This can improve air quality and help make your home feel more comfortable. The dry air feels cooler, which can reduce the temperature needed to make your home comfortable. This can reduce the energy consumption of your AC and help you reduce your energy costs.
These are some of the features you will get with the installation of high velocity air conditioning in your home. If you are ready for cooling, contact an HVAC contractor, like those at Classic Heating And Cooling, and talk with them about installing one of these compact systems to get the cooling you need.
