A High-Efficiency HVAC System Calls For Expert Ductwork Design And Installation
Your high-efficiency HVAC system will only work as well as your ductwork design and installation. This is why it is important to get the best HVAC specialists for the job to make sure you stay comfortable in your house year ’round, while keeping your utility costs down.
Your ductwork is important because it is responsible for distributing the conditioned air your HVAC system generates to the rest of your house. If the design is flawed, you will not be getting optimal circulation. Poor installations can cause up to 30 percent of your conditioned air to be leaked out into spaces like your attic or crawlspace before it ever reaches its intended destinations.
A trained HVAC specialist will first make sure that you are using properly-sized ducts. If they are too large or too small, they will not be able to cool your house sufficiently. A switch to new ducts will produce immediate, noticeable changes in your home’s comfort.
Your ductwork design will determine the placement of your return and supply ducts. Air needs to be able to travel from the supply to the return duct uninhibited in order to achieve a natural airflow. If air gets trapped in one area, it will cause the air pressure to rise, and air will start to seep out of your home. This will create warm and cool patches throughout your house.
The installation is equally as important as the ductwork design. If your HVAC contractor doesn’t make sure the seals between ducts are airtight, you will be losing conditioned air from day one. Much of your ductwork will only be accessible during the installation, so having repairs done to secure the connections would be a huge hassle.
