The ductwork in your Murray, Kentucky, home’s HVAC system may be more important than you think. Properly designed ducting can improve your HVAC system’s performance and energy efficiency. If your ductwork is not configured right, airflow can be restricted, leaks and cracks can occur, and poorly fitted seams could leak dirty air. Let’s take a look at why you might want to consider having your ductwork custom fabricated.
Sized For Your Home’s Floorplan
If your home has a unique floorplan or an unusual layout, custom ductwork may be an advantage for your HVAC system’s performance and energy efficiency. There’s no need to have poorly fitted ductwork when custom fabrication is readily available. The ducts will be made to accommodate the space inside your home for performance optimization; it will fit tighter in the basement, attic, and walls of your home for better space efficiency as well.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
When the ducts run in a straighter line with fewer seams, turns, and connections, there are fewer places for dirt, dust, pet dander, and contaminants to get trapped. The air delivered into your home will be much cleaner, which will improve your indoor air quality and keep your family healthier. However, even your custom ductwork should be cleaned on a regular basis to make sure that it is free of dirt and dust. This will keep your HVAC system running smoothly and efficiently.
If the ducting in your home does not fit properly, or if there are too many splits, joints, turns, and connections, the airflow could become restricted causing your HVAC system to work overtime to deliver warm or cool air. When the ducts are designed to flow in a straighter line, the performance level and energy efficiency of your system will increase. Also, improved airflow can help to heat rooms more evenly. Increased performance also means savings on your energy bills.
