Over the past 2 decades, spiral duct has seen a massive increase in popularity world-wide.
In Western Europe, where energy costs are much higher than in the U.S. and energy efficiency is critical, the benefits of spiral duct have long proven themselves in commercial and industrial applications.
Today in the U.S., the Spiral Duct Manufacturers Association (SPIDA) sees as its mission the promotion of spiral duct, round duct, and flat oval duct as a superior product for many applications.
According to ACHRNews.com, spiral duct has become so popular that the decision makers involved in the Pentagon Renovation Program, completed in 2011, chose to replace the existing duct system in the Pentagon with a more efficient, quieter, space-saving spiral duct system. The replacement was part of a mandated plan to lower total energy costs by 35%.
Though there are still applications that may require rectangular duct, there can be many advantages when working with spiral duct over rectangular duct. These include:
…all of which add up to less man-hours tied up between installation and maintenance, often making spiral duct the most cost-effective solution – especially in the high-performance, high-velocity systems typically found in large buildings.
Though superior for many applications, spiral duct is not the correct answer for every job.
When planning to install duct, two of any contractor’s largest concerns are required space and required pressure. Keeping in mind the space potentially used by other utilities like electric and water lines is absolutely essential when considering spiral duct.
Neither spiral nor rectangular duct is superior 100% of the time, so more importantly than choosing the right duct is choosing the right contractor who will know what duct you need and where to put it. When in doubt, always consult an HVAC expert like The Cincinnatus Group.
