Spacepak Heating & Cooling System
Spacepak - The Flexible Alternative To Conventional Cooling and HeatingWith the Spacepak system you can add 21st century heating and cooling to your home. The Spacepak system distributes high velocity air through flexible, pre-insulated 2" (inner diameter) tubing which easily slides through wall structures and around obstructions. All you see is a small, round air outlet about the diameter of a CD. Located on ceilings, walls, or floors, the outlets can be easily painted or wallpapered. The ultra-quiet and draft-free air conditioning system is run by a blower unit small enough to fit inside an attic, basement, or crawl space. For winter warming, the system can be heated through a hydronic (hot water) coil, electric coil, or a heat pump.
"The Original High Velocity system - And Still The Best"Spacepak pioneered flexible central air nearly 30 years ago and continues to improve the system. While other systems may look similar, they simply can't compete with Spacepak's quality and speed of installation. In fact, the labor-saving supply tubing and exclusive "Kwik Connect" connectors make your installation twice as fast.
A Model Of Efficiency With 30% Less HumidityThe last thing an older home and antique furnishings need is high humidity. Spacepak features an exclusive deep coil design that can remove up to 30% more moisture from your home than conventional central air systems. Because the humidity level is lower, you'll feel cool and comfortable at a higher, more energy efficient thermostat setting. And no matter where you live, you'll enjoy uniform, draft-free cooling, evenly circulated throughout your home.
Comfortably Cool From Floor To CeilingWith conventional central systems or portable air conditioning units, rooms are unevenly cooled. The Spacepak system cools through "aspiration", not diffusion, and uses less air volume than conventional systems. (Insert picture here) It utilizes a high velocity air stream to gently mix with air in the room for uniform, draft-free cooling. Hot and cold air layers are evenly distributed to keep the room comfortably cool from floor to ceiling.
Can't Fit Conventional Central Air Into Your Home?
Air Distribution SystemPre-fabricated, pre-assembled components, as shown below, can simply be snapped and taped or locked together. With Spacepak, duct sizing is not required. Except for the return air ducts and boxes (only three separate sizes required), all systems use the same size components, helping to simplify the installation.
Spacepak is a unique, complete central cooling system designed for simplified installation, quiet operation and efficiency.

Under the terms of all manufacturer's warranty and to comply with federal refrigerant handling laws, it is required that the system be checked, started up and signed-off on by a licensed air conditioning/heating contractor prior to use. Failure to comply with this provision will void all factory warranties. Keep a copy of the installation ticket for your records. Please ensure that all supply and return ductwork is properly sized and that a permit is obtained (where required). Always conform with applicable local and state codes. Electrical connections should only be made by a licensed electrical contractor. Unqualified persons should never attempt installation of this or any HVAC system.

The high efficiency SpacePak unit is the product of the latest manufacturing technologies on the market. SpacePak is a subsidiary of Mestek, one of the largest HVAC corporations in North America.
Mestek was founded in the spring of 1946 while America was bristling with optimism. The war was over and the Allies had won on every front. Our men and women were welcomed home by a grateful country. Years of rationing had created unsatisfied consumer demand for every product imaginable. It was a time when people with new ideas, when entrepreneurs with new vision, initiated the largest economic expansion ever known.
As new homes and factories went up across the nation, new companies began to make products to keep them warm and comfortable. An idea conceived over a lobster dinner led to the founding of Sterling Radiator Company in February 1946. In July of that year, the first lengths of finned-tube radiation were manufactured by a work force of three in a rented garage in Westfield, Massachusetts. Spurred by demand for its high quality products, the company moved to larger facilities in 1947, again in 1950, and again in 1954.
In August 1955, Hurricane Diane dumped 15 inches of rain on Westfield. A railroad embankment northwest of the Sterling Radiator plant gave way, sending a 12-foot high wall of water crashing through Mestek's buildings and leaving behind four feet of mud. Dedicated employees, working 60 to 80 hours a week in two shifts, got the plant running again within ten days. The flood's impact lingered through 1956, but Mr. Reed's commitment to rebuilding his company resulted in an enlarged plant and greater efficiency.
By the mid 1960s, Sterling began to enhance its growth opportunities through strategic mergers and acquisitions which have continued to the present day. One such opportunity came in 1986 when the company, then known as Reed National, merged with a smaller company, Mestek, Inc. Mestek had recently emerged from bankruptcy, the remnants of once-great Mesta Machine Company founded in West Homestead, Pennsylvania in 1898.
For more than half a century, the unwavering leadership of John E. Reed has fueled the growth of a continually successful business. From three employees to thousands, from one product to multiple companies, from Sterling Radiator to Mestek, the organization has always sought new opportunities.
Today, Mestek is a family of over 30 specialty manufacturers providing heating, ventilating, and air conditioning products, coil handling equipment, extruded aluminum products, and computer information systems and services. And while technology and markets have changed since 1946, the commitment to serve customer needs profitably is as important today as it was in a rented garage in Westfield.
