The ducts in your Summerfield, NC home deliver the heated and cooled air to your living spaces. They also play an important role in your home’s indoor air quality. If you’re replacing your air conditioner, furnace, or heat pump, upgrading your heating and cooling system, or remodeling your home, you may need to upgrade the ducts, too. Read on to learn about the benefits of sheet metal fabrication for custom ductwork.
Minimize Air Losses
Between 20% and 30% of the air that passes through a standard duct system is wasted, explains Energy Star. Custom ductwork created in our sheet metal fabrication shop ensures that there won’t be any leaky ducts in your home. By eliminating these air leaks, you’ll save money on heating and cooling costs.
Get a Perfect Fit
Many heating and air conditioning companies make equipment that requires one or more customized pieces of ductwork to attach to the unit. Getting a perfect fit means less rattling during heating and cooling cycles. It also means that no contaminants can get into the ducts and interfere with your home’s indoor air quality. A perfect fit in the ductwork reduces wear and tear on your heating and cooling equipment. Less wear and tear means fewer worn-out parts and a longer system lifespan.
Enjoy a Proper Installation
For a new heating or cooling system to work at its peak performance level, it needs to be paired with the right air handler and ductwork. Customized pieces of ductwork can be made to fit in small, confined, or unusually shaped areas. This ensures that the installation of your new heating or cooling system will go smoothly. You’ll benefit from a longer lifespan, less noise and improved indoor air quality when your ductwork and heating and cooling system work harmoniously together.
