Ducts are used to distribute and eliminate air as well as carry ventilation air. They guarantee adequate indoor air quality as well as comfort. Ductwork design is a key component for an efficient HVAC system when it comes to maximizing energy efficiency, comfort, and cost savings. Ductwork design has a large impact on your home and business, as it will help extend your cooling and heating systems.
Without an efficient ductwork design, several problems may occur. These include:
- Lack of humidity control-Without proper ductwork design, the airflow will begin to suffer making it uncomfortable to live in. A lack of humidity can cause dry skin, irritated nasal passages, itchy throat and deterioration of furniture and any wood in your home.
- Poor Air Quality-Air will not be able to circulate properly if there are issues with the ductwork design. If this occurs, you may notice a change of temperature and humidity in different rooms. Leakage can also result in airborne particles and pathogens which produce unhealthy air.
- Energy loss-Uninsulated ductwork can leak air which will cause your HVAC system to work harder and consume more energy. This results in an increase in your utility bill as well as a risk of future breakdowns. Accurate ductwork design allows air to flow freely between the air intake and the vents without extreme loss of heating or cooling.
