Installing a new cooling or heating system or upgrading an old one can not only improve your comfort, but also raise the value of your Western Slope home. The key to enjoying that increase in value is buying quality equipment, making sure it’s installed properly and sizing ductwork to get the maximum efficiency from running your equipment. That’s why it’s so surprising that sizing ductwork, perhaps more than any other part of an HVAC installation, doesn’t get much attention.
Why is the size of your ductwork important? Ducts are the conduits that distribute conditioned air throughout your house. How much air arrives at its destination depends on the size and integrity of the ducts. Each room in your house has its own separate need for air depending on cubic footage, number of windows and doors, whether it gets morning or afternoon sun, etc. If you try to heat or cool each room the same, you’ll end up with some rooms that are never comfortable.
Improperly sized ducts can create a number of problems.
Work with your contractor to make sure your ducts are sized correctly to solve these problems. This will make your investment in a new HVAC system a choice that will pay you back in comfort and savings.
