Before SpacePak air conditioning, owners of older homes with radiator heat struggled to find ways to add central air conditioning to their homes without tearing apart their structure. Installation of normal ductwork for AC systems required removing large sections of walls, floors, or ceilings, or adding unsightly chase boxes. With SpacePak mini-duct air conditioning, these concerns became a thing of the past. These quiet AC systems distribute high velocity cooled air through small 2" flexible tubes that can be threaded through floors, ceilings, and walls. Disruption to your home is minimal and cooling relief is maximized.
SpacePak pioneered and perfected the concept of "aspiration." The concept ultilizes a high velocity air stream that gently mixes with the air in the room for a uniform, draft-free, comfortable environment. Hot and cold spots as well as annoying drafts, common with conventional heating and cooling systems or window units, are virtually eliminated. Rooms throughout the house stay a comfortable, uniform temperature. SpacePak's unique cooling method removes 30% more humidity from the air than traditional systems. This means that even in the warmest, most humid month, the air in your home will be dryer and more comfortable.

We'll show up on time, listen to your needs, diagnose your SpacePak system problems, make recommendations and help you determine the best solution based on your wants and your particular situation.

The SpacePak system can be categorized as a high velocity system, or a mini-duct system. The system was first invented in 1946 by an engineer, Calvin McCracken (1920-1999) in a home in River Edge, New Jersey. The system was named Jet-Heet, since it’s basic design incorporated some of the principles of the jet engine. This design used a furnace to deliver hot air through small insulated ducts to rooms throughout the house.
In 1960, fourteen years after the initial installation, and after 2000 similair installations, the Jet-Heet system went into quantity production. At Jet-Heet, the product evolved into adding a companion air conditioning component to their system, called Jet-Cool. Over the next few years, the company became very successful and caught the eye of a company called Space-Conditioning Inc. located in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Space-Conditioning purchased the Jet-Heet company, and you guessed it, changed the name of the the product line to Spacepak. The rest is history. Since that time, til today, Spacepak has been synoymous with the highest grade central air conditioning system.
