Does your home or business need HVAC ductwork fabrication? Proper heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are a necessity. A powerful and efficiently functioning HVAC machine is important. The proper ductwork is crucial in ensuring proper and precise airflow to your business.

HVAC Duct Fabrication in CT and Western MA

Modern HVAC ducts are most commonly made of metal, fiberglass, or plastic, metal. With metal being the most commonly used material.

HVAC systems are typically composed of two main components: the supply branch and the return branch. The supply branch feeds air into the target space while the return branch cycles air back to the supplying unit.

Flexible and Rigid Ducts in CT and Western MA

Flexible ducts are usually cylindrical in shape. As a result, they are great for spaces where it may be harder to install more rigid ductwork. A flexible duct needs proper support. You do not want to diminish the flow of air from the designated HVAC machine.

Rigid ducts can either be cylindrical or rectangular and are sturdier than flexible ducts. These ducts are ideal for spaces with layouts that will not inhibit installation.

Duct Fabrication Process

The fabrication process for HVAC ducts involves precisely cutting and bending sheet metal into the desired cylindrical or rectangular shapes. A professional is needed to make sure all of the manufactured pieces fit together tightly. All grooves and openings need to line up exactly in order. This guarantees proper insulation and proper airflow. For this reason, it is always advised to seek professional guidance when designing, fabricating, and installing your HVAC ducts.
