What are Hi-Velocity SystemsTM?
The Hi-Velocity System is a complete home comfort system. Classified as an SDHV (Small Duct High Velocity System), our high pressure forced air delivery mini duct
system can be designed to provide heating, cooling, filtration, ventilation, and dehumidification.   The  Hi-Velocity System has been pre-engineered and works on the principle of pressure rather than air velocity.
 
How does the Hi-Velocity System Compare to a Conventional System?
Our system is quite different than a conventional furnace, one of the main differences being that the supply duct work is all "small diameter" or "mini duct", which is much more adaptable and does not place the same strict limitations on architects and builders. With a
pressurized small diameter duct we condition the air differently than conventional forced air systems. Pressure is created in the smaller supply ducts and converted to velocity at the outlets utilizing the Venturi Effect, which eliminates dust build-up within the duct work.  With continuous air circulation from the constant fan, airborne dust and other allergens can be easily filtered out of the air. With the use of a high pressure area to low pressure area, we continuously mix the room air, creating even temperatures from floor to ceiling.  Equal air flow to all of the outlets results in unmatched air delivery, and a draft free environment that eliminates hot and cold spots normally associated with conventional systems.
What are the Benefits of Hi-Velocity SystemsTM?
Featuring an innovative fan coil and unique heating and cooling technologies, the Hi-Velocity System helps create a healthier and more enjoyable indoor living environment, while saving money on monthly utility bills.  The Energy Smart Variable Frequency Drive Motor will help save homeowners up to 50% on their monthly operating costs, and the system can be installed in 25% less time than a traditional heating system.
Designing duct layouts is substantially easier because vent outlets no longer need to be located on outside walls. Our flexible two-inch and HE ducts fit inside a typical framed wall without having to disturb the drywall, making it very easy to install inside existing walls with minimal remodelling.  Our duct can be installed along joists, in between walls, or other confined areas quickly and easily.  Our system is also ideal in new construction because the design of some new homes makes it very difficult to install larger, bulkier duct systems. Our fan coil is modular and fits easily in mechanical rooms, closets, attics, crawlspaces, anywhere! The small footprint makes it the right choice for both new construction and retrofits. When every square foot counts, the Hi-Velocity System is the energy saving solution to all of your heating, cooling and IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) needs.
How does the Hi-Velocity System address Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?
The Hi-Velocity System utilizes a constant fan for air delivery which can help eliminate conditions that promote mould and mildew. By controlling your environment with continuous air circulation and moisture control, conditions that will allow these harmful spores the opportunity to take hold are reduced. The Hi-Velocity System can provide humidification, dehumidification, introduce fresh air and be used with high efficiency air filters. As an add-on, our Hi-Velocity Air Purification System provides Photo-Catalytic and UV Technologies, providing consumers unsurpassed indoor air quality.
Can the Hi-Velocity System provide dehumidification? 
The Hi-Velocity System is a complete
home comfort system, which can be used for heating, cooling, ventilation, dehumidification, or a combination of all. It is important to maintain the proper humidity levels in your home and workplace.  Humidity that is too high will stain ceilings and walls, and can cause paint and wallpaper to peel.  It is also a breeding ground for mould, rot and insects such as termites and cockroaches. Our Cooling Modules are highly efficient and very effective at removing moisture from the air. Not only do we cool the air, we use a lower air velocity which allows the Hi-Velocity System to remove more moisture from the passing air molecules. This can result in a 30% drop in humidity levels, leaving a constant and comfortable temperature on the skin surface. 
Can the Hi-Velocity System work with my existing air ducts?
The Hi-Velocity System is designed to use small diameter ducts and will not operate correctly with larger duct systems. Our LV-Z Series Fan Coils however, are designed to work in place of a conventional system, utilizing existing duct in the home. Perfect for new construction or retrofit applications, the LV-Z is a forced air Fan Coil, utilizing highly efficient Variable Frequency Drive Technology. In place of an old and out-of-date furnace, this new unit can save you time, money, and energy...conventionally!
What types of applications can the Hi-Velocity System work in?
The Hi-Velocity System is ideal for
residential and multifamily, retrofit and commercial applications.

What kind of sound levels can I expect from the Hi-Velocity System?
When designed and installed correctly the noise level on the Hi-Velocity System is equal or less than a conventional system.
Where is the best location for the Hi-Velocity System? 
The flexibility of the Hi-Velocity System allows the air handler to be located in attics, basements, crawl spaces and closets.

Where are the best locations for placing Outlets?
The outlets can be located in the floors, walls or ceilings.  All three locations are equally effective. The options are limitless!

What styles of Vent Plates are available?
Our vent plates are available in
many attractive finishes, in compositions of plastic, metal, and wood which can be finished, painted or stained to match their surroundings.
 
What size of Hi-Velocity System do I require?
It is recommended that an accurate room to room heat loss/gain is performed on the structure to ensure the correct size of unit is selected.
What options are available for Heating?
A network of smaller, flexible ducts operate under high pressure to continuously circulate air and ensure even heat distribution. Boilers, dual purpose hot water heaters, heat pumps, and geothermal systems can all be used as heat sources with our coils. We also manufacture a
Slide-In Electric Module for the system, that is easily installed without any external mounting or duct work required.

What options are available for Cooling?
Chillers, Condensing Units, Geothermal Systems, and Heat Pumps can all be used as cooling sources with our coils. The high pressure distribution network cools each level of a structure evenly. Use of a lower CFM across our cooling coils ensures a larger amount of humidity is removed from the air, for increased comfort.



Is Zoning a possibility with Hi-Velocity Systems?
Energy Saving Products Ltd. is proud to announce the release of our HE-Z Zoning Ready Fan Coils. HE-Z is unique in the SDHV Industry because it is a true “Energy Saving Zoning Control System”,  compatible with most forces air zoning packages. The WEG controller is pressure reactive and will change the energy input to maintain constant CFM flow of open outlets from 150cfm to 1250cfm, eliminating the need for by-pass dampers.
What types of thermostats can be used?
Most 24 volt thermostats can be used with the Hi-Velocity System. Our unique control board makes wiring the thermostat to the air handler quick and easy.
What types of filters can be used on the Hi-Velocity System?
Most filters on the market today can be matched to the units, including media filters, electronic filters and HEPA filters. Now available, our one-size fits-all
Hi-Velocity Air Purification System offers photo-catalytic and UV technologies, giving home and business owners unsurpassed Indoor Air Quality. Click the picture for more details!
Can additional components such as humidifiers and HRV/ERV’s be added?
Various types of humidifiers and HRV/ERV’s can be easily added to the unit.
