Consider a High Velocity System for Your Air Conditioning Replacement

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

Choosing to replace your air conditioner is a big decision, and there are several different options on the market from which homeowners can choose. One type of AC that is becoming more popular is the high velocity system. High velocity systems offer ductless air conditioning through a process called aspiration. These systems can work in any home, but they are particularly good for older homes with steam or baseboard heating. If you are looking for a new air conditioning system for your Cary, NC home, you may want to take a look at a high velocity system from Ideal Services Heating & Cooling.

How Does a High Velocity System Work?

A high velocity system uses a compact air blower to condition the air in combination with an outdoor unit very similar to a traditional split-system AC (you can also use a heat pump with a high velocity system). The cool air is delivered through flexible ducts with a diameter of approximately 2” wide that can be snaked through walls without extensive construction work. The ducts are attached to small, circular openings that are the same width as the tubing and placed strategically in walls and ceilings.

The cooling method used with a high velocity system is known as aspiration. Cool air is blown into the room of your home at a very high rate of speed – 2,000 feet per second – and mixes with the existing warm air in the room. The result is cooler, dryer air.

Benefits of a High Velocity AC

  • Fits any space
  • Quiet
  • Great for ductless homes
  • Removes 30% more humidity
  • Requires only 1 return vent
  • Reduces air loss to less than 5%
  • Very energy efficient

The best way to determine if a high velocity air conditioning system is good for you is to work with a trained professional. For over 20 years, Ideal Services Heating & Cooling has been helping customers in Cary, NC with their air conditioning replacement. If it’s time for you to replace your old air conditioner, call us today and schedule an appointment with one of our trained professionals.

Consider Upgrades When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

Replacing an air conditioner is a big decision, but it can help save you money with better energy efficiency and fewer repairs, may also help to improve indoor air quality. But did you know that you can enhance these features with upgrades to your new AC? There is no better time to consider an upgrade for your Cary, NC air conditioning replacement than before that replacement happens.

Upgrades to Consider

There are a number of upgrades available for your new air conditioner. Below are 3 that Ideal Services Heating & Cooling installs frequently for our customers:

Air Filters/Purifiers

Does someone in your home have allergies or a high sensitivity to environmental pollution? If so, an air filter or purifier may be an addition to your system that you’ll want to consider. Your new replacement air conditioner comes with a standard filter, but it is not designed to collect allergens or other microbes. With a choice of filters and purifiers available from Ideal Services Heating & Cooling, you can improve your indoor air quality without sacrificing any comfort.

Zoning System

A zone control system added to your new AC gives you total control over how, when and to what temperature different rooms are cooled. For instance, if you have a room in your home that sees infrequent use, you can reduce that room’s cooling without affecting the other rooms in your home. Zoning systems help you maximize on the efficiency of your air conditioner, enabling you to save on utility bills.


There’s no getting around that humidity is part of the North Carolina heat. Excess humidity can make your system work harder, as humidity helps to hold heat in the air. If your home tends to hold a lot of humidity, or you are extra-sensitive to it, you might want to consider adding a dehumidifier to your air conditioning system. Dehumidifiers help remove excess humidity from the air, creating greater comfort and potentially enabling you to run your air conditioner less.
