HVAC Ductwork

HVAC Ductwork

The supply and return duct work for your HVAC system is extremely important. It controls how much air is distributed to each supply vent in your home. When HVAC duc twork is not sealed or secured properly it causes air leaks in the ventilation system. Air leaks can greatly decrease efficiency and cause your HVAC system to run much longer to achieve the set temperature.

  • Duct work missing insulation
  • Duct Duct work missing insulation missing insulation
  • Improperly designed ductwork with too small of a return
  • Closed off supply vents to get more flow to other vents (Do Not Do This!)

  • Blocked air flow from pieces of insulation in ductwork
  • Ductwork containing mold, mildew and large quantities of dust
  • Blocked return vents, dirty filters or improper filtration
  • Water accumulated in return ventilation from clogged drain line

The Lungs of Your AC System

A properly installed and maintained duct system is just as important as your air handler or condenser. Ductwork design and sizing is critical for air flow performance in your ventilation system.

Types of Ductwork

FLEX DUCT

Flexible round duct is made out of a plastic interior hose encased in metal wiring and covered with fiberglass insulation. This is the most affordable type of duct system material. It is more susceptible to tears and leaks and does not last as long as metal ductwork. Lifespan of flexible duct is usually 15-30 years. The most common type of HVAC ductwork in residential Florida homes is flex duct.

METAL ROUND DUCT

Metal HVAC ductwork can last 50+ years if conditions are right. When insulation is degraded, the metal HVAC ductwork can be re insulated without replacing all of the ductwork. Metal ductwork can also be cleaned in certain applications. Metal HVAC ductwork is the most expensive type of duct system to have installed.

FIBERGLASS DUCTBOARD

Fiberglass Duct board is usually used in applications where supply boxes are fabricated. Duct board is a similar application to flex duct, but costs are increased due to more labor involved. Duct Board is fairly durable and usually has the same lifespan as flex duct. You should not clean duct board. Cleaning can release large quantities of insulation and fiberglass into the air stream.

Duct Cleaning & Maintenance

The best method for keeping a clean duct system is prevention. Changing filters regularly is very important. Periodically changing your air filters will help prevent contaminant build up in the blower wheel, evaporator coil and duct work.
