High Velocity Air Conditioner Installation

Custom AC installation for Northeast Ohio homes of any age

Many neighborhoods throughout Cleveland—including historic Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights—are known for their beautiful architecture dating from the early 20th century. Owning a historic home can be immensely satisfying, but also comes with its own unique set of concerns related to outdated infrastructure that can be too expensive to renovate. For example, older homes that were constructed with hot water radiators or baseboard heat usually do not have any ductwork installed. Because of this, you may think that central air conditioning is impossible for your historic home, and have resigned yourself to cumbersome and unsightly window AC units. If that is the case, think again: high velocity air conditioning may be the right solution for you!

What is high velocity air conditioning?

High velocity air conditioning is a cooling system designed especially for older homes without existing ductwork, preventing the use of traditional forced-air cooling. In high velocity AC, cool air is distributed throughout the home via a system of small flexible tubes that run throughout the building in crawlspaces, closets, and ceilings. Outlet holes for distributing the cool air are only two inches in diameter, and the master air handler can fit compactly in an attic, basement, or closet.

What are the benefits of high velocity air conditioning?

There are countless reasons why owners of historic Northeast Ohio homes prefer high velocity air conditioning. High velocity AC is:

  • Inexpensive to install
  • Sensitive to a home’s historic architectural elements
  • Discrete and nearly sound-proof
  • Very efficient, for example removing significantly more humidity than central AC
