Spacepak Air Conditioning Systems: Central AC for All
Homeowners looking for home cooling solutions for older homes without air conditioning such as homes with radiant heat have a few options. Window air conditioners are often the go to solution to cool certain rooms throughout the house. While this is convenient and affordable up front, they are a clumsy and temporary solution. These units often break down and are very expensive to operate. Spacepak Air Conditioning Systems offer a much better alternative. These cooling systems have been around since the 1960s and provide even and affordable air conditioning to the entire home. In recent years, Spacepak systems have been installed in many renovation projects. Older and historic homes benefit from the ease of installation, as little demolition is involved.
What are Spacepak Air Conditioning Systems?
A Spacepak is a high velocity cooling system derived from three components. The first is flexible ductwork. This 2 inch flexible ductwork is snaked through walls and ceilings to deliver cool air throughout a home. The second component is an air handler. Air handlers are installed in locations such as an attic, basement, or closet. Lastly, a condensing unit is placed outside to complete the installation. The beauty of high velocity air conditioning is that very little damage is done to a home during installation. For this reason it has become the go-to ac system for remodels of homes with radiant heating or homes that do not have existing ductwork.
How Much is a Spacepak Air Conditioner?
Installing a high velocity cooling system in your home does involve a significant investment. However, they are more affordable than installing a forced air system and ductwork to an existing home. However, these systems provide added comfort and energy efficiency. The average cost of a high-velocity air conditoner with flexible mini-ducts ranges from around $3000 – $20,000. The complexity of your project and size of your home will determine the price that you pay.
