Benefits of Spiral Duct for HVAC Systems
If you’re in the market for new ductwork for your HVAC system in your home, spiral ductwork is a great choice. These ducts offer several benefits over their counterparts, which is why the team at ADJ Sheet Metal highly recommends them. Here’s a closer look at five distinct benefits of spiral ducts for your home or business.
1. Low Risk of Leaks
Leaks in ducts happen, but the leak rates on spiral ducts are very low. The shape and design of the ducts mean air leaks are almost impossible, and this means your HVAC system is going to run more efficiently. These ducts are self-sealing, so if leaks do develop, they are instantly sealed.
2. Less Static Pressure Loss
Static pressure requires the HVAC system’s fan to work hard to deliver heated and cooled air through your home. Spiral ductwork, because it is fully sealed and round in shape, creates less static pressure loss. The pressure that the air is under when it leaves the air handler doesn’t change much as it flows through these curved ducts. This means the airflow is adequate and the system doesn’t have to work too hard to deliver air through the registers and into your home.
3. Easier Installation
Spiral ductwork is easier to install than other types of ductwork. It is a strong, rigid material, which means fewer devices are needed to hang and support it. All the installer has to do is screw the ductwork in place, and it stays. This means you can fit the ductwork into tighter spaces because it doesn’t require additional space for the supports.
This design also means the ductwork can be made from lighter-gauge metals. This makes it easier to handle, and it also reduces some of the cost of the material.
4. Quieter Operation
The pressure that passes through your ducts is responsible for some of the noise you hear from your HVAC system. Because the spiral ducts allow for a balanced level of pressure, the total amount of noise is much less. Your system will operate quietly if you choose spiral ducts.
5. Ease of Cleaning
Finally, spiral ducts are easier to clean, which helps keep your facility sanitary and your indoor air quality cleaner. Regular professional cleaning will help protect your property from indoor air quality problems, and it’s easier to manage when you have spiral ducts.
