It wasnbt too long ago that homes without ductwork didnbt have any options for whole home cooling. But with the advent of better technologies and newer, more flexible products, homeowners without ductwork have several choices where they didnbt have any before. One of these choices is a high velocity system. As you can divine from the name, high volume air output is part of this system, but this is just one aspect to consider. However, before moving forward with this, or any type, of air conditioning system, itbs critical to work with trained experts. The specialists at Comfort Central, Inc., have the expertise to install a wide variety of air conditioning systems, including high velocity systems, so give us a call today!

How It Works

High velocity systems use a method called aspiration to cool your living spaces. What this means is that the air is blown into the room at a very high rate of speed that forces the air to mix. This action produces very cool, dry air in a short amount of time. But you donbt have to worry about heavy winds blowing you around your home. High velocity systems deliver the air through flexible, round duct tubing that are 2b in diameter, and the outlets for the system match the diameter of the tubing. Typical locations for the outlets are high up on walls and in corners so that the air mixes quietly and effectively. The indoor air handler for the system is compact and can fit in a closet or other small space, and the outdoor unit, which is very similar to that of a traditional split system AC, contains the compressor and condenser.

What is a high velocity air conditioning system?

A high velocity air conditioning system is a type of air conditioning system that uses a different type of ductwork and air handler than traditional air conditioning units. Despite the difference of the ductwork and air handler, the high velocity air conditioning system uses similar technology to what a standard air conditioning system uses. Although, high velocity air conditioning systems use much smaller ductwork and a more powerful air handler to provide savings on energy costs.

What are the benefits of a high velocity HVAC system?

Some of the benefits of a high velocity HVAC system are: 

  • It costs less on energy each month. 
  • It helps reduce humidity levels in your home. 
  • It heats and cools your home quicker. 

A high velocity HVAC system is a great option for your home if you live in an area with very high humidity levels, as it can keep your home’s humidity levels low. To find out more about getting a high velocity HVAC system installed in your home, contact us today.  

How much does a high velocity air conditioning system cost?

A high velocity air conditioning system typically costs about $3,000-$7,000. Although, the price can vary depending on: 

  • The cost to install the ductwork 
  • The type of high velocity air conditioner you want installed 
  • The HVAC contractor’s hourly rate  

Getting a high velocity air conditioning system installed is usually minimally invasive since the ductwork is smaller and can fit around existing structures. To learn more about getting a high velocity air conditioning system installed, give us a call today

Why Consider It?

  • No need for extensive ductwork installation b the tubing for the system is flexible and can be easily snaked through the inner walls of your home.
  • Removes 30% more humidity b the aspiration method is great for dehumidifying.
  • Reduces air loss b high velocity systems have less than a 5% air loss rate.
  • Very energy efficient b the systems use less electricity and cool quickly, allowing for less energy usage.
