Although some people try to use the same HVAC ductwork forever, this equipment normally needs replacement after 10 to 25 years. Its condition and cleanliness often degrade considerably during this time period.
When it comes to commercial HVAC systems, ductwork is one of the most critical factors in the efficient functioning of your system. For the ductwork to work properly, it must be installed well and built into the system. Here are some of the benefits of replacing your ductwork.
The entire HVAC system strains in cases where the ductwork is not properly sized. This makes the system age at an accelerated rate because the treated air doesn’t meet the thermostat’s demand. With the use of custom ductwork, you eliminate extra strain on the system, so it will last longer with regular maintenance.
Custom ductwork lacks holes and cracks, so it helps prevent air leakage. This minimizes the loss of heat and cool air. Energy efficiency improves indoor comfort and saves you money on monthly energy bills.
Ducts, when replaced, are more efficient and, in turn, improve the performance of the entire system. The heating and cooling of your building will be faster to help maintain temperature stability with minimal energy loss.
Some flexible ducts start bending or sagging as time passes. This often causes air to generate more noise when it travels through them. New ductwork could eliminate this bothersome problem. Proper professional installation reduces the likelihood that conduits will sag in the future.
The mentioned holes can allow dust and other contaminants to enter indoor air and circulate throughout the home. New ductwork will prevent your HVAC system from sending insulation or wood particles into your living spaces.
