Description

Key Features:
Types of Ducts:

Sheet Metal Ducts: Typically made from galvanized steel or aluminum, these ducts are durable, resistant to mold, and offer longevity.
Flexible Ducts: Made from a metal wire coil covered with plastic and insulation, these ducts are ideal for tight spaces and short runs.
Fiberglass-Lined Ducts: These have a lining of fiberglass to reduce noise but can be prone to mold and require careful maintenance.
Main Components:
Main Trunk: The primary duct that transports air from the HVAC unit to branch ducts.
Branches: Smaller ducts that distribute air to various zones or floors.
Supply Ducts: Carry cooled air from the main trunk to individual rooms.
Return Ducts: Collect stale air from rooms and return it to the HVAC unit for reconditioning.
Airflow Management:
Registers and Grilles: Openings that allow conditioned air to enter rooms. They often come with adjustable louvers for controlling airflow direction and volume.
Plenums: Boxes connected to the HVAC unit that distribute air into the ducts.
Installation Considerations:
Sealing and Insulation: Proper sealing prevents air leaks, which can cause energy waste. Insulation, especially in unconditioned spaces, maintains air temperature and prevents condensation.
Duct Layout: Efficient duct layout minimizes turns and long runs, ensuring even air distribution and reducing strain on the HVAC system.
Maintenance:
Regular inspection and cleaning can prevent common issues such as leaks, blockages, and mold growth, ensuring optimal performance and indoor air quality.
