A high efficiency heating and cooling system can help you save money on your energy bills while ensuring that your home is at a consistent temperature in every room. But an HVAC system is only as good as its ductwork design and installation, which is why it’s important to bring in an expert when planning it.
The ductwork design will lay out where supply ducts are positioned and how air is circulated through the house. You can have ducts in multiple rooms or just one per floor. To best ascertain which configuration is best for you, you need an experienced HVAC installer.
An expert will determine load calculations for each room of the house. This means they calculate how much energy you need to keep the entire home comfortable. They also will evaluate the airflow to figure out how it naturally flows and how to take advantage of that.
Once the design is settled upon, it’s time to focus on the installation. Much of the ductwork becomes inaccessible after the install, concealed as it is in walls and floors. This is why it’s especially important to get the job done right at the onset. All of the seals between ducts need to be airtight so you aren’t losing conditioned air into areas that don’t need it. This will help you be more efficient and save you money.
