    Which one is more efficient?

    Is High Velocity more efficient than conventional system?

    If you look at SEER ratings, high velocity kills them. That's why they got a loophole around the 13 SEER minimum. There can be cases of a "16 SEER" or higher outdoor unit (matching indoor) that only gets 12 or 13 SEER with a Space Pak or Unico. Also watch capacity, usually end up losing about 1/2 a ton. An 036 might be rated at 30K with a HV air handler.

    Not quite an answer but...

    The problem I have seen with high velocity is that it does not do well to get rid of humidity. Others may have different experience in different areas of the country.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?
