Installing High-Velocity, Flexible-Duct Air Conditioning in an Older Home

Project: Elmwood Neighborhood, Episode 12, Part 3

Homeowner Don DeSantis wants to create a workout room, complete with a whirlpool tub, in the attic of his home, the eleventh Elmwood neighborhood project house. What was once an apartment will be turned into an open area.

Next, Bob learns about the new rubber slate roof, before the hot tub is craned in and placed in the turret area. After a new SpacePak central air conditioning system is installed, Bob talks to Jan Jones (from Mr. Tub) about the new spa.

Part 3: Installing High-Velocity, Flexible-Duct Air Conditioning in an Older Home
The AC Space Pack system is located behind the knee wall and under the roof rafters. It is a versatile two-piece system with an outdoor condenser unit and indoor handling section. It is a high-velocity system, which means that it has six cooling coils and can move more humidity than a conventional system.
Part 4: Discussing the Home Spa and Replacing the Finial on the Turret
The theme of community building in the historic Elmwood neighborhood of Providence, RI, is the focus of this project. Rather than tackling one house, Bob Vila is helping 11 neighbors tackle smaller projects like porches, kitchens, bathrooms, and even a third-floor artist's studio.
