Ducts are used in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) to deliver and circulate air. The airflows include the supply air, return air, and exhaust gases from gas furnaces. Ducts can also deliver ventilation air as a part of the supply air, ensuring acceptable indoor air quality and comfort delivered through the ducts and the heating and air conditioning system.
Ductwork is another term for the duct system. During the design phase of installing a new HVAC system, the criteria include the layout or placement of the ductwork, sizing, optimizing, detailing, and ensuring a balance in pressure throughout the duct system.
The design is essential in ensuring the HVAC system’s efficiency and effectiveness, and when designed or installed incorrectly can reduce efficiency by as much as 40%.
The importance of properly designed and installed ductwork is why Minuteman Heating and Air offers custom ductwork services, ensuring the system, ductwork and the home are appropriately designed, constructed and installed.
Each home is unique, and installing premanufactured ducts with a “one-size-fits-all” approach can result in a reduction of comfort and efficiency when the ducts don’t match the heating and air conditioning needs. For example, ducts that are too large or too small, can affect a systems performance and efficiency. The size of ducts depends upon a number of factors, and the connections between ducts can result in a loss of air.
This is why it is essential to ensure you hire a qualified and licensed HVAC contractor, to ensure the proper system for your home or business. From the system size and type to the ductwork design, accuracy and a thorough knowledge of industry standards and practice will ensure your comfort, system efficiency and the expected life span. You can count on the experience and expertise of Minuteman Heating & Air to assure your home or business receives the HVAC system it needs.
