Installing commercial ductwork is about more than “hanging and banging.” The type of duct chosen for the job, the sizing and length of the runs, the angle of the bends, the selection of connectors and sealant, all make a difference in the quality, lifetime, and cost of the job.
Money and comfort are critical concerns in duct design. Doing it right isn’t just an academic exercise.
The elimination of errors in acquiring the duct, planning for perfect duct runs, using the minimum number of connections, and creating perfect seals creates significant savings. These savings can rise to 30% or more of the traditional cost of duct acquisition and installation.
Savings go beyond initial installation, with ductwork design correlating to the energy efficiency, airflow quality, and expected lifetime of the entire HVAC system.
Attention to every detail counts. Even attention to the delivery can save time and labor costs. At TCG, for example, our premium service delivers shrink-wrapped duct labeled and ready to fit together as easily as a Lego set.
Every contractor should be aware of their responsibilities when it comes to designing an effective HVAC duct installation. These considerations include:
Once the duct design has been perfected, where do you turn for quality ductwork at an affordable price, delivered on-time and on-budget? TCG Duct has been fulfilling the ductwork needs of builders and contractors for nearly two decades. Call us at 878-295-8009, or visit our Contact Us page today.
Installing effective ductwork is as much about the math as it is about the metal. Getting the most out of an HVAC system today takes into account a range of factors, including the orientation of the building, the type and quality of windows, insulation levels, and the design of the building itself – knowing which surfaces of the building are going to gain or lose heat.
Load calculation is the process for determining the right size of HVAC system for the building. The gold standard for calculating load is set forth in Manual J of the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA).
Ductwork sizing depends on a number of factors, starting with the capacity of the heating/cooling units. It includes the square footage of the building and its individual rooms, the cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air flow, and the duct size friction loss rate.
Calculations that used to be ball-parked using pencil and paper are now delivered in high precision by building information specialists using advanced software that weighs a complex array of factors.
