For most homeowners, choosing the right air conditioning system can be a difficult decision. Not only is there a wide variety to choose from, but also many of us don't possess the knowledge to understand what makes one air conditioning method different from the next. SpacePak is a system that bears further explanation, for it's unique design offers wide-ranging benefits that many homeowners may not know are available.

SpacePak is a high velocity air conditioning system. Using a unique design that removes humidity and lessens drafts in the living space, SpacePak ensures a drier, more comfortable environment than that provided by conventional air conditioning. But before we explore the details of what sets SpacePak apart, it's important to know why it was designed that way.

A comfortable atmosphere depends on many variables. Think about being outside on a 70-degree day-your comfort doesn't just rely on temperature; it's about humidity, too. A dry atmosphere at 70-degrees is much easier to bear than one that is humid and muggy, even at the same temperature. Even the strength of the breeze that day has an affect on your total comfort, whether it's calm and comfortable or windy and chilling. These same principles apply in air conditioning your home-the less moisture and draft in the air, the more comfortable the room will be.

The SpacePak system does just that, removing up to 30% more moisture from the air than conventional air conditioning systems. Using a six-row deep evaporator coil with lower airflow, SpacePak is able to cool air to lower temperatures with greater dehumidification. Energy benefits aside, this feature allows for cooler, more comfortable air, at the same temperature setting of a conventional system.

This comfort is not only achieved through less humid air, but through a unique air circulation method called aspiration. By discharging cold air at a high velocity at strategic locations (such is in a corner or next to a wall), SpacePak creates an intermingling of air in the room to give a complete and thorough circulation. This means that the air will be more evenly mixed through the room, providing even comfort without the pockets of cold air one often feels while in an air conditioned room.

But perhaps the most dynamic element of the SpacePak system is that all of these features are provided by a system that occupies a fraction, just one-tenth (1/10), the space of conventional air conditioning. Rather than using large, square outlets and bulky metal ductwork, SpacePak employs a miniaturized system that ensures subtlety and an unobtrusive installation. The small, round outlets, which are only 2 inches in inner diameter, dispel air through the ceiling or floor and are available in a variety of finishes. And the ductwork that transfers air to these outlets is small, flexible tubing that weaves in between spaces in the walls, ceilings, or floors similar to a central vacuuming system. This system not only guarantees significant installation advantages, but also is nearly unnoticeable to the roving eye.

Through this compact system, SpacePak is able to provide all the benefits of cooler, less humid air and draftless comfort without the bulky ductwork and unattractive outlets. While unconventional, this truly innovative design may be the right choice for your home. If you're looking for a system that provides a less humid, more comfortable atmosphere with minimal obtrusion, SpacePak may be right for you.
