WESTFIELD, Mass. — SpacePak’s high-velocity central cooling and heating system has been selected for inclusion in Bob Vila’s EnergyWise House in Palm Springs, Calif.

The EnergyWise House is a 3,200-square-foot multi-level home that is designed to be a showcase for energy-efficient design ideas, high-performance building materials, and environmentally sound products that outperform traditional building products.

All of the materials being used to construct the EnergyWise House are off-the-shelf products readily available today. According to Vila, the emphasis of the house is on innovation, especially when it comes to energy savings and environmentally-conscious building design.

Two 4-ton SpacePak heat pump systems will be installed in the main house, with a 2-ton SpacePak heat pump system going into the 600-square-foot guest house. Installation will be completed by Breeze Air Conditioning, Palm Desert, Calif. "This is a fantastic project. SpacePak will provide a complete heating and cooling solution that is also highly efficient. The comfort is unmatched and the installation is uncomplicated," said Joe Coker, president of Breeze Air Conditioning.

All SpacePak units feature a six-row copper tube-aluminum fin evaporator coil that removes up to 30 percent more humidity than a conventional coil, says the company. The system uses narrow, flexible supply tubing and small air outlets to simplify installation. The outlets can be installed in the ceiling, walls, or floors, and can be painted or wallpapered to match decor. Custom oak outlets are also available for installation in wood floors, paneling, and log homes.

SpacePak is a division of Mestek Inc. For more information, visit www.spacepak.com.
