HVAC Duct Installation - Understanding the Process

Are you ready to install HVAC ductwork in Columbus? Your comfort is directly related to your ductwork.

Ducts are an essential part of your cooling and heating system. They are responsible for transporting the hot and cold air needed to keep you comfortable. Think of your HVAC unit as your heart.

Most homeowners consider HVAC installation a difficult task. You need to be aware of what to expect. Learn all you need to know about HVAC duct installations.

Start with a plan

Planning is the first step in installing your ductwork. They will draw a layout for the ductwork and mark their connections.

During this step, the technician will also need heat loss and gain to be calculated in each room.

A technician can help you choose the right location for your exhaust vents and air conditioner. The technician will help you choose the right type of ducts to use. Most homeowners choose sheet metal made of galvanized iron.

Duct Vents

The technician will need holes to be made in your drywall in order for you to install your duct vents. Your furnace's AC unit will have supply vents. The vents that bring hot or cool air to it are called supply vents. Return vents are vents that send air back to the HVAC unit.

These vents will vary in size depending upon the layout of your home.

Get your HVAC System online

If you are getting a completely new system, the technician will install your furnace and condenser after drilling the vents.

All of this will still be in place if your ducts are being replaced.

Installing the Ducts

Your HVAC system should now be up and running so that your ducts have something to connect. The technician will then begin installing the actual ductwork.

They'll be careful to avoid bends as they make the HVAC system less efficient. Your technician will retrofit any ducts that have been damaged or are not in good condition if they are being replaced.

After the ducts were laid, they can be connected to your HVAC system.

Sealing the system

Unsealed duct systems can be a waste of time and energy. Your HVAC system will work harder to keep up if there is air leakage.

To seal any leakages, your technician will use either mastic or metal-backed taping.
