Ducts are paramount for conventional central heating and air. Ducts are also commonly referred to as ductwork. Ductwork is a series of channels that deliver and circular conditioned air throughout a home or business via an HVAC system. The ducts are used for not only air conditioning but heating and ventilation as well. They distribute the conditioned air throughout your home or business. The ventilation also helps improve in indoor air quality.
Whenever a new central heating and air unit is installed within a home or business it is critical that the design for the system is laid out accordingly to take advantage of the layout. If the system is not installed correctly the efficiency and effectiveness could be reduced as much as forty percent. K&S Heating and Air’s professional and friendly technicians are well versed and experienced in providing custom ductwork services. Our certified technicians will not only ensure that the HVAC system’s ducts are laid out efficiently based upon the layout of the home or business but they will also ensure that it is optimal to make the best for the efficiency of the system.
Not all homes and businesses are built with the same materials and layout. With the installation of pre-manufactured ductwork; this approach more often than naught can end up with a serious reduction in the efficiency of the system. If ductwork is too small or too large it can negatively impact the performance and efficiency of the system. The size of the ductwork also will increase the risks associated with loss of conditioned air.
Ductwork is no simple job and this is why it is crucial to consider hiring a qualified and experienced heating and air company. K&S Heating and Air’s professional and certified technicians have the experience and know-how in delivering professional results with residential and commercial ductwork. We specialize in customized designs that will produce the most accurate, efficient and optimal layout for the home or business.
Different Types of Ductwork
When it comes to ductwork there are various materials that are used. Below is a list of these materials that ductwork is usually manufactured from.
Galvanized Steel – Galvanized steel is the most common and industry standard material that is installed in most homes and businesses with central heating and air systems. Galvanized steel ductwork comes with a zinc coating that assists in the prevention of rust.
Aluminum – Ductwork that is composed of aluminum is very versatile and lightweight. Not only this, but it is also quicker to install. Since aluminum is much easier to cut and shape it is used in situations where custom and special shapes of ductwork are needed.
Polyurethane and Phenolic Insulation Panels – This is also known pre-insulated air ducts for short. Unlike aluminum and sheet metal ductwork, pre-insulated air ducts do not require extra insulation. As such, this type of ductwork can be installed in single step.
Fiberglass – This type of ductwork is installed when homeowners or businesses are looking for an HVAC system that will operate as quietly as possible. Fiberglass ductwork have panels with thermal insulation that is built-in and the interior of the ductwork also helps with the absorption of sound.
Flexible Ducting – This type of ductwork is also more commonly known as Flex. Flex is manufactured from a form of flexible plastic that is poured and then cooled over a metal wire coil in the shape of a tube. This ductwork can be pretty convenient when it is used to attach supply air outlets to rigid ductwork.
Fabric Ducting – This is more so considered a distribution device than a conduit for conditioned air like the rest of the ductwork mentioned above. Fabric ducting is made from a type of polyester material. It helps provide a more even distribution of cooled air in a given area than conventional duct systems do.
