Replacing Your AC? Consider a High-Velocity System

Delivering Quality Comfort to the Homes and Businesses of Hartford County and New Haven County

Are you considering an air conditioner replacement soon? As spring draws nearer in West Hartford, CT, now is the time to think about what type of system will work best for you and your needs. If you own a smaller or older home without existing ductwork, you may think your options are very limited. This is not true! One excellent option for you may be a high-velocity air conditioning system.

High-velocity systems rely on small, flexible tubing snaked through and around existing construction, rather than the standard bulky ductwork required for a traditional central air conditioner. They can be pulled through crawlspaces, closets, and even above ceilings, requiring little to no remodeling to accommodate for them. Is it right for you though? Read on to discover the benefits of high-velocity systems.

Why Should I Consider a High-Velocity System?

  • Easier Installation: The ducts used for high-velocity systems are just about 2 inches wide, making them much easier to retrofit into older homes than the standards eight-inch-deep HVAC ducts. These miniature ducts can run inside walls, below floors, and through other tight spaces.
  • Ideal If You Already Have Radiant Heating: If you have radiant floor heating throughout your home, then you do not have a need for big, bulky ductwork. But you do need cooling, which makes a high-velocity system a great choice. Don’t forget that high-velocity systems provide heat as well!
  • Highly Efficient: High-velocity systems typically make a room colder faster than a traditional central AC unit. They also remove moisture more effectively than standard systems, which is particularly helpful when it’s humid out.

It’s important to remember that just like any other AC system, a high-velocity system requires regular maintenance in order to maintain their performance quality. The longer you put off maintenance and repairs, the greater the risk of damaging your system.
