A brief overview of HVAC ductwork basics helps to understand how these vital components keep your home comfortable and efficient in all seasons. A typical residential HVAC system circulates over 1,000 cubic feet per minute of cooled or heated air. For optimum temperature control, ductwork is designed to distribute a balanced volume of conditioned air […]
HVAC airflow is among the most critical factors when it comes to home comfort and efficiency. When airflow’s not up to specs, cooling and heating performance declines, energy consumption rises and system components incur more wear and tear.
Functional, efficient duct design is as vital to effective heating and cooling as a home’s furnace and air conditioning units. Proper distribution of conditioned air inside a house is a carefully calculated balancing act. The U.S. Department of Energy states that poorly designed and/or improperly installed ductwork can reduce the efficiency of an overall HVAC system by […]
To handle Dayton’s warm summers and cold, dry winters, an HVAC air duct system must be optimized for performance.
