SpacePak Central Air: Preserving Architectural & Aesthetic Integrity for Older Homes

Highland Park residents who live in one of the city’s many older homes wouldn’t dream of living anywhere else. One challenge to vintage homes, though, is they were designed before the introduction of central air conditioning. Because they weren’t constructed with ductwork, they can’t accommodate modern central air technologies. With Northern Illinois’ muggy season typically lasting more than three months, homeowners have needed to find alternative methods to keep their homes cool and comfortable.

American Vintage Home proudly offers Highland Park, IL homeowners an innovative air conditioning solution tailored to older homes without central air conditioning. Designed to fit within an older home’s framework, the SpacePak system delivers superior comfort while blending in seamlessly with your home’s decor.

How the SpacePak Air Conditioning System Works

SpacePak is a high-velocity system that uses aspiration to cool the home. Aspiration is a term that means “to draw up gas.” The system uses air streams to create a gentle, continuous mix of air in every room. You get uniform, draft-free comfort throughout your older Highland Park, IL home. The system’s features include:

  • Flexible ductwork that inconspicuously fits inside wall and floor cavities. No major renovation such as gutting walls or adding bulkheads is required.
  • Ability to install vents anywhere, including walls, floors, and ceilings.
  • Energy-saving temperature zoning capabilities.

SpacePak is a whole-house comfort solution offering premium air circulation and draft-free comfort with no hot or cold spots.

Superior Comfort Throughout the Home

The SpacePak system allows you to enjoy even air temperatures in every corner of your Highland Park home. But what you don’t see is an AC unit in every room! SpacePak is designed to blend in with your home’s existing structure, so you get to enjoy cool, comfortable air without compromising your home’s interior beauty and charm.

SpacePak FAQs

Is the SpacePak system noisy?

SpacePak systems, when properly installed, generate the same sound as new conventional forced air systems. Sound attenuation tubing near all the vents acts as a buffer to reduce sound from the high-velocity process.

Do SpacePak systems offer the same comfort as conventional air conditioning systems?

Yes, and sometimes more so! SpacePak systems can remove up to 30% more moisture from the air than conventional forced-air air conditioning systems, a welcome benefit during Highland Park’s high-humidity summers.

How long does it take to install a SpacePak or Unico system?

Depending on the size of your home, it typically takes five to seven workdays. We take our time to make sure your installation fits your home perfectly and delivers optimal system performance.
