So all of you who have always known the bulky large ductwork of the forced air cooling system, do you also know about the high-velocity air conditioning system? If not, this blog today is about high-velocity air conditioning, how it works and where it best suits and best fits. So let's begin;

High-velocity Air Conditioning - What is it? 

Basically, the formula of high-velocity air conditioning is; smaller ducts - higher velocity. While in the conventional ductwork system, the ducts are so large; at least 2 feet wide in any case, this ductwork is 2 inch in width. And as we read in high school physics, ''small area - high velocity'', the air that comes from this 2 IN wide ductwork is much faster and higher in velocity and therefore cools the indoor in no time. A medium sized room, for instance, takes only 40-45 seconds to get evenly cooled via a high-velocity air conditioning system inlet. Amazing! Isn't it?
As said, this system uses small tubes that are very properly insulated and flexible, this takes energy loss (compared to conventional ducts), accommodation problems and complex installation out of the equation. The installation as well can be made with almost zero virtual ugliness.     

Is this system suitable for my home? 

This system is for you if you have a small area, don't have a ductwork installed already and can't take the worries of maintaining a conventional ductwork. As due to flexibility, the dust and pollen etc can't make homes in the duct corners like they do in the conventional ductwork, no complex cleaning is required. So if you run from cleaning, this is for you. Also, if you have a home that is old and too congested to be overloaded with a large duct system or you hate even the presence of the split ac systems, high-velocity air conditioning could be just right for you.

The drawback of this system 

Before we end, here's a drawback of high-velocity air conditioning system. Since the inlets of this air conditioning system are very small in size, they create noise as very high-velocity air passes through them. Although certain noise reduction accessories are often sold with the system, they don't make it entirely noiseless. Some people, especially those who have severe noise irritations may find this very disturbing.

One important suggestion 

Being people of the HVAC field, we help homeowners learn about different heating and cooling systems. But as we tell them about the systems, it is also upon us to make them aware of the pros and cons of the systems. Please note that not all systems are suitable for all homes. Although we do tell generally what is best for what, a perfect compatibility tick can only be given after properly inspecting the location and the needs of the people living in that area. Therefore, we highly recommend homeowners to consult professionals before purchasing costly appliances or before making serious renovations.
If you find high-velocity air conditioning a compatible choice for your home, don't rely solely on your assumption; consult a professional before you go serious about it.
