The air from your heating or cooling system travels through the ductwork in your house. The air is taken from your home, moved through your heater or air conditioner, and pushed back to the rooms in your house to heat or cool them. To work effectively, ducts have to be properly designed, installed, and maintained. Otherwise, the output and intake of air will be affected and your home HVAC system will become less efficient.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Ductwork
There are three different commonly-used types of ductwork: flexible, sheet-metal, and fiberglass. Depending on the building and your heating and cooling needs, certain types of ductwork are better than others.
Having the best type of ductwork for you will make your system run better and keep your utility costs down. Our experienced technicians can let you know what type of ductwork is best for your home heating and cooling system to keep your comfort high and your utility bill low.
Things to Know to Know About Ductwork
The thing that matters most in having efficient ductwork is proper installation and regular maintenance. If your installer does not seal the seams or insulate the ducts properly, you could have leaks in between duct pieces. This can cost you money because it means your system has to work much harder to heat or cool your home!
Proper sizing is also very important for ductwork. If the size of your ductwork doesn’t match your HVAC system, it won’t be able to heat or cool your home efficiently.
Our skilled technicians have years of experience installing ductwork, and our attention to detail is second to none. If you want your ductwork installed right, have it installed by Evolved Mechanical.
