Benefits of High Velocity Heating

Your heating system goes through its paces every winter, as our blustery, chilly Portland, OR days demand reliably warm temperatures when you get home every night. If your current system isn’t doing the job, you might want to consider the addition of a high velocity heating system instead of an alternative model. High velocity heating utilizes smaller ducts sending air through them much more rapidly than traditional heating systems: the same principle as forced-air furnaces delivered at a much faster pace. The installation costs may be more than other systems, but not as much as you’d think. And the benefits that come with it far outweigh any of the drawbacks.

Faster Is Better

The high speed with which the system delivers its air is one of its selling points. In part, it leads to a more even distribution of air throughout your home. Cold spots are eliminated and the various rooms of your house feel more comfortable, all without any significant increase in monthly costs. Furthermore because the air is distributed faster, the house tends to heat up faster, which can be a huge boon to keeping those winter chills at bay.

Easier Ductwork

High velocity heating can also benefit homes that can’t support a traditional system of ducts. By using smaller, more flexible ductwork, the system can enable placement in crawlspaces and other areas that might not be big enough to handle another set of ducts. They can also be installed without having to make major changes to your walls or floors, helping to keep costs down without interfering with your household’s ability to get on with its daily life. They’re quiet to boot, especially with a standard-issue noise dampener that comes with nearly all units. It adds up to a system that is much less intrusive in every way.
