Is Custom Duct Fabrication Always More Efficient?

In small commercial buildings that have relatively simple layouts, standard ductwork tends to be sufficient for ensuring the acceptable delivery of heated and cooled air. More often than not, however, commercial facilities have complex layouts with different heating and cooling needs throughout. In these instances, custom duct fabrication is key for minimizing energy use, cutting energy costs, and ensuring that the indoor environment is optimally suited to the needs of employees, and the needs of sensitive and high-value IT equipment.

It may be necessary to keep certain areas of your building cooler than others. One of the best ways to create dramatic variations in temperature from zone to zone or room to room is often by installing more ducts in select spaces or choosing to use larger ducts in specific areas. For instance, if you have your own in-house server that’s situated in a dedicated server room, custom duct fabrication can eliminate the need to provide a secondary cooling system for moderating temperatures in this area alone.

Get An Efficient And Needs-Specific Solution

Companies have the ability to choose from a vast range of HVAC system designs. By investing in the latest and most innovative heating and cooling equipment, businesses can lower their carbon footprints and ensure reliable levels of comfort for everyone in the building. Unfortunately, however, the overall efficiency of any HVAC system is also largely determined by outside factors such as the very ductwork that routes heated or cooled air. Due to this fact, customization is always capable of further streamlining delivery so that:

  • Less energy is lost from point to point
  • Sufficient amounts of heated or cooled air delivered to the areas that require it most
  • Fewer thermostat adjustments need to be made

There are also the secondary financial benefits of installing custom ductwork. With the right solution, you’ll be able to create a more impressive and comfortable environment for prospective clients, stakeholders and prospective stakeholders, and any other guests that visit your building. Moreover, you can create an ideal working environment for your employees, thereby boosting both productivity and overall office morale.
