Benefits Of The Pre-insulated Duct System
There has been a lot of growth and expansion in the HVAC industry. The expanding industry has led to the invention of the pre –insulated ducts which have made it possible for people to enjoy the comfort of the thermal system. This system also allows people to have access to the indoor quality air. Pre-insulated duct system operates on a single installation which makes it cost to be a bit cheaper as compared to the other thermal systems. This also saves on the time spent during the installation.
Advantages of the pre-insulated duct systems includes the following
Saves on space
The material used in making this system allows it to be installed easily against the structural elements. This helps in saving the building space. The available floor space can, therefore, be used for other purposes. Additionally, this system can also be installed on floors, ceilings, and walls.
Creates thermal comfort
Pre-installed ducts create thermal comfort by reducing the consumption of energy. The material is adequately insulated thus reducing any possible heat loss. The system is energy efficient and helps in reducing the energy costs significantly.
Light in weight
The ducts used in making this system are light in weight. Their weight is fifty percent that of the insulation material. They can, therefore, be installed and transported easily. Their low weight means that they also require less manpower in carrying them and installing them. Two technicians are enough to do the installation process.
They are green
The materials used in making this system are eco-friendly with zero emissions. The ducts used do not emit any CFCs which would harm the ozone layer.
Smoke and fire proof
The materials used in making the pre-insulated panels or ducts are fire resistant. They cannot emit any smoke in case they are accidentally heated by a source of flame. They are also heat resistant, and they can withstand a temperature of 800 degrees centigrade. The material is not affected by the growth of fungus.
You are guaranteed of fast installation
The materials being light in weight can be installed at a more rapid rate. The time spent to install the pre-installed ducts is percent less as compared to the installation of the steel ducts.
They are hygienic and clean
They have joints along the sections which allows for easy cleaning. They can be cleaned using either the mechanical or regular method. Cleaning paves the way for fresh air into the ducts.
