"Unico systems operate the evaporator close to freezing, lower CFM. If you can keep the air handler/ductwork in conditioned space, you may be able to offset much of the efficiency loss caused by the low CFM system."

I am guessing this topic has come up before however I am hoping some HVAC folks out there would help me understand the advantages and dis-advantages of traditional forced air distribution systems as compared to Hi Velocity forced air systems. Specifically with respect to IAQ (indoor air quality), efficiency, comfort and ease of installation. Also does one type of system work better at a lower design heat temperature? Thank you for your time and willingness to share your expertise!See More
