What kinds of ductwork for heating and air conditioning systems are there?

Ducts are the passageways that cold air travels throughout to cool your home, and that warm air leaves your house.There are two main types of ductwork: flexible ductwork and rigid.

Flexible ductwork is made up of plastic tubes surrounded by insulation. It’s perfect for tricky spots that rigid ductwork won’t fit in. A skilled installer will make sure there’s no kinks or sagging when they install flexible ductwork.

Rigid ductwork can either be tube-shaped or rectangular and is made up of sheet metal, fiberboard, or lined with fiberglass. Rigid ductwork is also insulated. The best material used for rigid ductwork depends on whether it’s for a home or office, or if the ductwork is primarily for ventilation of for heating and cooling.
