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.

Air conditioning bills can really increase during the summer months! We all like to be cool and comfortable in our homes, but this comes at a price. However, there are many ways you can save on air conditioning during summertime! Helpful Tips to Lower Your Energy Bill in the Summer: Preventative Maintenance Maintenance is key when it comes to keeping your air conditioning bills down.

There are generally two types of air conditioners that we use today: R22 and R410-A. Refrigerant is what makes air cold so that you can enjoy cool air inside your home, but a lot goes on to make that air cold, and you can experience problems with your HVAC unit if just one thing were to go wrong. If you are having problems with your unit, like the refrigerant is failing, it is essential to know what refrigerant you are using so that you can determine what to do to fix or replace your air conditioner. R22 R22 refrigerant is also known as Freon, the older of the two refrigerants. R22 uses mineral oil for self-lubrication, allowing it to remain cold over long periods of time. It does not absorb much heat, meaning it has a good chance of compressor burnout from overheating. This refrigerant is also a hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) which is detrimental to the O-zone. R410-A R410-A refrigerant is also known as Puron. Unlike R22, this is a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) which does
