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.

With these hot summer days at an all-time high, it is nice just to sit inside and enjoy the comforts of an air-conditioned home. But, you always find yourself sitting there just thinking about how much money your spending on the energy bill! Sound familiar? Viccarone HVAC is here to give you some useful tips on how to keep your energy costs low while still keeping cool at home. Keep Doors and Windows Closed With kids in an out of the house, it is easy for someone to leave the door open. Even if the door is open just a crack, the cold air will rush out, and the hot air will replace it. This causes your thermostat to use more energy, which costs you money! In order to keep those energy costs low, make sure you keep the doors shut! Proper Insulation in Your Home In the same vein, if your home is not properly insulated, youre going to be spending more money on air conditioning. Keep Wet Feet Outside If you have a pool, hot tub, or if the kids are outside playing in the sprinkler,
