If you’re having a new home built for you or doing major renovations to an existing one, you have the perfect opportunity to incorporate modern ductwork design that will provide maximum home comfort coupled with real energy savings. If you’d like to achieve some of the savings benefit but can’t afford a re-design of existing ductwork, at least have any leaks sealed and make sure ductwork is properly insulated.
Proper Ductwork Design
Proper design of a duct network ensures that all the rooms in a home are kept at a comfortable temperature through a balanced system of supply and return ducts that are well insulated and free of leakage. The design is somewhat different between the supply ducts and the return ducts.
It has been estimated that properly designed and maintained ductwork can achieve more than 80 percent efficiency.
