When it comes to customized HVAC sheet metal fabrication for uniquely designed systems, this option is not only available but also recommended by most HVAC experts. For those who are not familiar with customized sheet metal fabrication as it relates to an HVAC system, it entails cutting and burning metal to create customized ductwork that can be fitted to a residential or commercial HVAC system. And while it is possible to use prefabricated ductwork, there are several benefits that come with choosing the custom fabricated variant instead. These benefits include the following:
Energy efficiency – Whether your goal is to heat and cool a commercial building or a private home, using customized sheet metal in your duct design ensures that all of your connections are properly sealed. In doing so, your HVAC will operate more efficiently, which, in turn, reduces your energy bill and saves you money.
Custom solutions – Custom ductwork is also ideal for those who are thinking about renovating their home or business in that it can be made to accommodate the property’s new layout. Prefabricated ductwork, on the other hand, would have to be split. And splitting prefabricated ductwork results in the duct system being less airtight, which, in turn, causes the property’s HVAC system to work harder.
Easier retrofitting – Integrating new components into an HVAC system is a great way to improve its efficiency. However, if those new components include a new duct system, it is always best to go with the customized variant as it will do a better job when it comes to heating and cooling the property’s living space.
Less damage – Installing an HVAC system in a home that has never had one is a tremendous undertaking, especially in historic homes. Most HVAC experts will agree that installing a new system while trying to preserve the home’s historic charm is no easy task. Fortunately, custom ductwork can make the entire process that much easier. For example, it is not necessary to cut into as much of a home’s drywall when installing custom ductwork. Therefore, the installation process gets done faster without the home sustaining more damage than necessary.
While any duct system can transport air from an HVAC system into the living space of a home or business, one that is customized can lead to greater efficiency and a significantly lower energy bill.
