Is Custom Ductwork a Good Option?

February 16, 2021

Raise your hand if this has ever happened to you: Even when you turn on the air conditioner, it doesn’t seem to ever get cool enough in your house. This might be caused by the wrong kind or size of ductwork in your HVAC system. Fortunately, there are ways to fix this problem (or avoid it altogether) with custom HVAC ductwork installation in Tampa, FL.

If you’re looking to get a new HVAC system, it’s a good idea to consider investing in custom ductwork as well. This will ensure your system is connected correctly and functioning properly now and for years to come.

Benefits of custom ductwork

Homes come in all shapes and sizes. Even if they’re in a neighborhood designed by one developer, there will be quirks and differences between each home, and that includes their HVAC systems. It’s important to get the right size ductwork so the proper amount of airflow will be going through the system at all times.

Here are some of the benefits of custom ductwork on your HVAC system in Tampa, FL:

  • Better performance: Custom ductwork will result in a system that performs better. Your home will cool down faster, heat up quicker and maintain temperature better between rooms—even when they’re different sizes or on different floors of the house.
  • More energy efficient: Custom ductwork will be made by hand, by a professional who will look out for any holes, cracks or imperfections that might lead to air leakage. This will lead to you spending less money on your energy bill and a more comfortable, stable home temperature.
  • Fast installation: With custom ductwork, the installation job will be done right the first time, leading to a job that’s done in less time overall. The project will likely not take more than a few days to complete.
  • Longer lifespan: Your HVAC system will have to work harder if the ductwork is not the right size, and that means it will not last as long as it could (or should). If the ductwork is too large, the system will have to work overtime just to fill the space before it even gets the air to the different rooms in your home. If it’s too small, it will have to keep running because there isn’t enough treated air reaching the sensor at the thermostat.
  • Fits to your home: With plenty of twists and turns in attics, crawlspaces, walls or other sections of the home that ducts might have to run through, there is a lot of room for leakage. Custom ductwork installation will take all the eccentricities of your home into account to ensure minimal air loss.
  • Takes up less space: If your HVAC system is in the basement, you might have unnecessary sections of boxy metal lying around where it doesn’t need to be. With custom installation, you can design the space to not only be functional, but even leave enough space for an entire extra finished room in your home.
