    I remember some years back working on either a Unico or Spacepack system that had a hot water coil tied into it, can't remember the particulars, but I know for sure it can be done. The company I worked for only dealt with high velocity systems. Try calling Unique Indoor Comfort and pretend your inquiring on it for yourself...I'm sure they'll give up some info.

    General question in regards to high velocity systems.
    Went to a home for a problem with their HVAC system always running. At first thought, Why isn't it making temp? Or Is it short cycling?
    After speaking with the owner, I went to the attic and saw the system. It looked like it was a high velocity system until I saw the unit. It was a 2 ton Nordyne air handler with electric coil!!!
    I have never seen this before nor would ever of done this...
    Feel bad for the owner because they got screwed by the contractor. High velocity systems are more money then handlers/furnaces..
    So, replace the handler with a high velocity or replace the ductwork?
    Has anyone encountered this or something like it?
    Any advice would be appreciated?
    I informed the home owner (who is a carpenter/contractor) but I don't think he realizes the severity of the situation.
    Their electric bills are very high.

    Try contacting Unico. They might send someone to the property and give advice/info about heating options. Spacepak doesn't get as involved nor gives advice.
    This is my experience, not implying they are not good...

    Thanks
    I was a member years ago but guess they shut down this app and have restarted it..
    I don't know if it changed or if I had to introduce myself on the old one. Can't remember. Thanks for letting me know.
