Custom Ductwork Lowers Energy Bills and Improves IAQ

One of your main concerns in your Fredericksburg, VA, home is having quality indoor air. If the ductwork within your HVAC system isn’t designed properly for your home’s floor plan, the air blowing into your home can contain particle pollutants. As a result, it’ll compromise your indoor air quality. Having custom ductwork designed for your home’s unique specifications will help ensure you enjoy clean air around the clock.

Problems With Poorly Designed Ductwork

The ducting within your HVAC system is an integral part of the heating and cooling process. The ducts transport air from the central unit of the HVAC system into your home. A series of joints holds them together, and they run throughout your home unseen to deliver heated or cooled air.

When it comes to ductwork, one size doesn’t fit all. If a company didn’t design the ductwork properly, your system may not run as efficiently. For the air to flow efficiently throughout the ductwork, it’s best if there are as few turns as possible. When there are too many twists, they can restrict airflow. Also, if the workmanship of the ducting is of poor quality, leaks can occur. When there are leaks, dirt and dust from outside of the system can get sucked up and blown into your home.

Why Custom Ductwork Improves Indoor Air Quality

When you have a professional HVAC company customize your ductwork, the service technicians will carefully measure the area and fabricate the ducts for your unique floor plan. With detailed measurements and load calculations, they will design a system to maximize airflow. They will use as direct a route as possible, reducing turns that can restrict airflow. With a continuous supply of clean air flowing throughout the system, your home’s IAQ can improve. In addition, you’ll save money by having your HVAC system run efficiently.
