There is a network of metal channels that form the basis of your home’s “lungs.” They might look like a covered maze fit for a hamster, but they in fact bring treated air to all reaches of your home. These are your ducts.
Ducts are used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) to deliver or remove air. Airflow examples include supply air, ventilation air, return air, and exhaust air. In concert with your HVAC system, air ducts ensure thermal comfort by circulating warm or cool air throughout your building. A duct system, or ductwork, involves planning, sizing and optimizing the conduits for efficient operation and air distribution.
Duct System Design
Understanding the dynamics of airflow is prerequisite in designing an optimal ductwork solution. If a certain pressure exists at one given point in the system, what will it be 50 feet down downstream? How will the size and shape of the conduit affect the resistance that air currents encounter? In what way do turning vanes reduce turbulence by guiding flow in a certain direction? The science behind being comfortable in your living room involves more than just setting your thermostat to the desired temperature. Armed with galvanized steel, aluminum and flexible ducting, take-offs, stack boots and volume control dampers, our expert installers will craft a ductwork system that delivers comfort to every area in your home.
