The Importance of Properly Sized Ductwork in HVAC Systems
Most homeowners understand that their HVAC system is an essential part of their home, but few understand the importance of properly sized ductwork. Ductwork is the system of air ducts and vents that help distribute air from the HVAC system throughout the home. If the ductwork is not properly sized, the entire system can suffer.
Incorrectly sized ductwork can lead to a number of issues within the HVAC system. If the ducts are too small, the airflow will be restricted. This can cause the system to work harder in order to heat or cool the home, increasing energy consumption and causing the system to wear out faster. On the other hand, if the ducts are too large, then the system will struggle to regulate the temperature, leaving certain areas too hot or too cold.
Another issue that can arise from improperly sized ductwork is air leakage. If the ducts are too large, air can escape through the gaps and reduce the efficiency of the system. This can lead to higher energy bills as the system has to work harder to reach the desired temperature.
