The HVAC duct market is projected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.4% for years, reaching a value of 11.61 billion by 2027. According to Fortune Business Insights, two factors lead the way in this promising market.
One driver is energy. Today, building owners are more sensitive to life-time costs in heating and cooling. Smart HVAC systems and energy-wise building designs are sought after so that energy is used where and when needed, and only as long as needed.
Today, sensor systems are capable of monitoring when floors and rooms are in use, then automatically adjusting air flow and heating to meet real-time needs. Smart systems like these provide for significant savings over time.
The second driver is air circulation as it relates to building health. The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has spurred a great deal of research and redesign into how air must be circulated, mixed with fresh air, and purified by UV and ionization technologies to keep building inhabitants safe from microbes. Advancing filter technology also plays a part.
Moving viral particles away from occupants and keeping those occupants healthy is going to be a major concern of HVAC systems for years to come. It’s simple. Unless they feel safe to be in them, people will avoid commercial and public spaces. This would be a disastrous situation for the construction industry in general, but luckily, advancing HVAC technology and cutting-edge duct fabrication can lead the way.
When it comes to factors like energy savings and improved circulation, new construction is only a part of the equation. The same concerns apply to aging HVAC systems in commercial buildings everywhere.
Older systems may continue to work, but their efficiency is lagging compared to today’s standards. In general, they are likely to use far more energy than new components doing the same job.
This applies to both the HVAC systems and the ductwork that delivers conditioned air. Aging duct is likely to share at least some of these problems:
The same pressures now taken into account in new construction are drivers for owners of existing buildings too. It’s time to retrofit older HVAC systems in ways that save money long term and keep building occupants both comfortable and less likely to be exposed to viral and microbe concentrations.
This kind of retrofitting pressure in dealing with microbial hazards has happened before. The legionella outbreak in the mid-1970s led to new building and engineering standards that affected the work of architects, building service engineers, and construction professionals— all centered around mitigating water system risks in that case.
Today, testing for and mitigating legionella bacteria in water systems is simply a standard part of building operations. It is likely that today’s anti-viral and filtration adjustments due to the COVID-19 pandemic will end up developing a set of parallel standards for dealing with contagious viruses in buildings, both old and new.
