If you are in the market for a new heating and air conditioning system, you might want to consider a high-velocity HVAC unit. Using new HVAC technology, high-velocity units can quickly and efficiently heat or cool your home for better climate control.
At Atomatic Mechanical Services, we have a lot of experience installing, repairing, and maintaining high-velocity systems. Learn more about the advantages of high-velocity heating and cooling and how they operate below, and reach out to us to make an appointment with a member of our team.
What Is a High-Velocity HVAC System?
High-velocity HVAC systems are similar to traditional HVAC systems in that they heat or cool air using a heat pump or compressor and then distribute the air into a home’s living areas. The biggest difference is how the air is distributed in a high-velocity system. Instead of using traditional ductwork, high-velocity HVAC systems use tubes that are about 2 inches in diameter. The vents are also smaller – about 5 inches in diameter compared to traditional vents that are about 6 inches tall and 12 inches wide.
With a high-velocity unit, conditioned air moves from the condenser or heat pump to a high-velocity air handler that uses more pressure to push the air through the tubes and out the vents. This means your home will reach the set temperature much quicker than a traditional HVAC system.
Because air is pushed through the unit faster, your system will run less often and use less fuel, which will save you money on your monthly energy bills.
The Benefits of a High-Velocity HVAC System
Installing a high-velocity HVAC system in your home comes with a number of benefits, including:
Since the tubes are only 2 inches in diameter, they are much easier to install than standard 8-inch ducts. These miniature ducts are also very flexible and can be installed inside walls, below floors, in attics, closets, as well as other tight spaces.
More Efficient Cooling
A high-velocity system is very efficient at heating and cooling your home in a short period of time. You’ll be surprised at how quickly the system reaches the temperature you set on your thermostat. Because the system runs less, you can save a significant amount of money on your monthly energy bills.
Excellent Humidity Control
You’ll notice a better balance of indoor humidity levels with a high-velocity system when compared to other HVAC systems. This is because high-velocity systems remove about 30% more moisture. This impact in humidity helps make your home much more comfortable during the summer.
Many people don’t like the way window air conditioning units take up space and block their view. Units, even wall mounted mini splits are hard to decorate around and are intrusive. High-velocity vents are small and easier to hide from sight. They keep your home comfortable without drawing attention.
The tubes that come with high-velocity HVAC systems are actually insulated to reduce noise, making them quieter than low-velocity heating and cooling systems and window AC units.
