Benefits of Custom Duct Work

Creating custom duct work is a science and an art. Custom duct work is important for increasing efficiency and reducing costs in your heating and cooling system. 

Custom Duct WorkOptimizing Your HVAC System

By beginning a custom duct work job with Viccarone Heating and Air Conditioning, you’ll be well on your way to optimizing your system.

To start optimizing your HVAC system, you need to reduce the static pressure. This reduction in static pressure comes from the engineering and utilization of a proper design load calculation and not oversizing the equipment. If you are using equipment that is oversized, you are compensating for the waste from the ductwork, the filter box and other system drags on the total system design.

You can improve the HVAC system design and total effectiveness by including:

  • A radius duct design.
  • Increase the duct size.
  • Reduce the right angles.
  • Eliminate the wasted corners.
  • Reduce any leaks, holes or openings in the duct.

You can add larger filter box sizes to help with the proper filtration and provide adequate Merv levels. The key is to remove the air flow DRAG - 100% of input tries to achieve 100% - “x” output.

HVAC Systems with Zone Controls

In an HVAC system with zones, increasing the zone damper size before the normal duct cavities can benefit the air flow to those specific areas. Using the straight common size ducts throughout the full design may put a strain on the system.

Custom Duct Work: Designed with You In Mind

If you think of static pressure like a blockage in an artery in the human body, doctors try to open up the artery and blood flow with stints. By either opening up the artery or bypass the restriction the flow of blood increases to the area of the body.

This is a very similar concept that we follow at Viccarone Heating and Air Conditioning. We are always looking to design a system that is cost-beneficial and meets the customer’s total HVAC system needs.

Were excited to announce Viccarone Heating Air Conditioning has been recognized by NCIs High-Performance HVAC Today! Gino Viccarone is a lifer. From the time of his graduation from the West Side Institute vocational school in Cleveland, OH, to where he is today, he has only worked in the HVAC Industry. His first job was with a local HVAC contracting company where he worked for slightly more than eight years as a service technician. The hours were long, the work could be grueling, especially during the hot, muggy Cleveland summers. Eventually, he was given the opportunity to do some installation work and he fell in love. In 1994, he decided to start his own company, and Viccarone Heating and Air Conditioning was born. He operated the business from his home. My father was retiring from his job at the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper and he decided to volunteer four years of his time riding along with me in the truck. He refused to let me pay him. He often would buy me lunch, especially
