      HVAC Duct Installation: Best Practices

      A well-performing HVAC system is a sign of a healthy, functional home. To keep your HVAC system in good shape, it’s crucial to understand the role that ductwork plays in the system. 

      HVAC Duct Installation: Best Practices

      In this post, trusted air conditioning maintenance specialist Superior Air lists the best practices for ensuring proper duct installation.

      • Plan for proper placement. When laying out the ducts, it’s important to ensure that they don’t have to travel too far to reach a specific room. If they do, the result will likely be hot or cold spots in that area.
      • Invest in suitable materials. Don’t skimp on your ducts: purchase quality materials. Whether you opt for sheet metal, fiberglass or some other approved flexible material for your ducting, ensure it’s durable and meets quality standards.
      • Size all filters equally to maintain your HVAC system’s efficiency. Air conditioning repair experts ensure correct sizing by performing room-by-room calculations. Failure to do this will prompt recurring repairs.
      • Route ducts through conditioned areas. This will minimize the loss of cooling or heating in the event of a leak. By routing ducts through these areas, conditioned air will leak into spaces that need to be cooled or heated.
      • Test your ductwork to verify its effectiveness. Make adjustments as needed. During a retrofit, ensure the ducts are fastened securely with sheet metal screws and its joints sealed with duct mastic.
      • Use as few connecting pieces as possible. Remember that every joint where your ducts connect will be prone to air leaks.
      • Make sure the air isn’t blowing on people. Cool air blowing across your skin may feel good on warmer days, but during the winter, warm air blowing can be uncomfortable.
      • Build quiet systems. Immediately address equipment noise. Check the ducts between the equipment and any registers and grilles.
      • Hire professionals for your duct installation. As with any kind of home improvement, choosing a reputable contractor is a must. Their workmanship can affect your comfort and make a difference to your monthly bills. With correct duct installation, you can avoid issues like improper sealing and poor system design.
