Tip: Do You Need Custom Ductwork?

The installation of a new home comfort system, such as a central heating and air conditioning system should not be a stressful experience. Unfortunately, as we all know, things don’t always go according to plan. Some homes may seem like a great candidate for a central heating and cooling system, but as the system is being designed someone realizes that there are spots where standard ductwork simply cannot fit. Don’t let this get you down, though. When you work with the custom ductwork experts at ACI Northwest you’ll find the ductwork solutions you need provided by professional ductwork service providers in the Coeur d’Alene area.

Ductwork generally comes in rectangular and circular shaped pieces. This is not always going to work for every home, though, and in that case you will need to enlist the help of a professional to design and fabricate some custom ductwork for your heating and air conditioning installation project. It is very important that this custom ductwork is provided by a qualified professional. Just because a piece of ductwork is made for you does not mean that it is a quality piece of work.

If you allow an unqualified service provider design your heating and air conditioning ductwork system you may experience any of a number of different issues. Poor ductwork design can lead to inefficient heating and air conditioning performance, resulting in utility bills that are higher than necessary. Your heating and air conditioning system will have to work harder than it should to push the air through the poorly designed or fabricated ductwork system and using more energy than it otherwise would.

While increase operational costs may seem bad enough, this harder work that your system is being forced to do can actually degrade the system over time, making it less and less efficient until it finally is damaged or breaks down altogether. Well designed and fabricated custom ductwork can help you avoid this and other problems.

If you already have existing ductwork in your home keep an eye out for indicators that your ductwork is not working efficiently and effectively. Unusually high heating and air conditioning bills are one warning sign to look out for. Uneven heating and the development of hot or cold spots throughout your home is another. You may want to go around your home and compare the output of different registers. If any seem to be underperforming it is possible that you need some custom ductwork to fix the problem.
