As a homeowner, one of your main concerns in your Fredericksburg, Virginia, 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 that is blowing into your home could be filled with dirt and dust, compromising your indoor air quality. Having custom fabricated ductwork designed for your home’s unique specifications can help to ensure that there are no obstructions or leaks in the system that could impede clean airflow.
Problems With Poorly Designed Ductwork
The ducting within your HVAC system is an integral part of the heating and cooling process. The ducts are used to transport air from the central unit of the HVAC system into your home. These ducts are held together by a series of joints and are run throughout your home unseen to deliver the heated or cooled air inside.
When it comes to ductwork, one size does not fit all. If the ductwork was poorly designed for your home, your system may not be running as efficiently and cleanly as it could be. In order for the air to flow efficiently throughout the ductwork, it is best if there are as few turns as possible. When there are too many twists, airflow can become restricted. 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 technicians will carefully measure the area needed and fabricate the ductwork for your unique floor plan. With detailed measurements and load calculations, they will design a system to maximize airflow using 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 will save money by having your HVAC system run efficiently.
