Heating and Cooling with High-Velocity Heating and Cooling Systems

Difficulties heating and cooling upper stories of old homes have long been a challenging issue that is typically high on the renovator’s list of project objectives. The old home’s existing heating and cooling vent system is often inefficient or in the case of attic remodels nonexistent. The cost and difficulty of retrofitting an old home with a central-air system can be overwhelming. Fortunately there is an alternative. High-velocity heating and air conditioning systems utilize flexible small diameter tubing that can be threaded through an existing structure without requiring a major remodel. This flexibility makes high-velocity heating and air conditioning systems ideal for retrofitting old homes. And some people even claim that high-velocity systems provide better circulation, dehumidification, and efficiency than traditional systems.

High-velocity heating and air conditioning systems force high-pressure air through flexible 2" feeder ducts. At the end of each duct is a register or outlet. Most systems include unimpressive mass-produced white plastic outlet covers. Reggio Register offers distinctive quality crafted high-velocity outlets with solid oak, cast brass, or cast aluminum covers. These high-velocity outlets have a special adapter that slides into the systems tubing for an easy install and can be stained or painted to match your décor.
