Your home's heating and cooling system is like your heart pumping out life-giving blood to your organs and tissue, only your heating and cooling unit is the heart and your ductwork carrying warm and cool air replaces your veins delivering the blood. A clogged artery from too many restrictions can lead to a heart attack just like having too small a return line, supply lines improperly sized, restricted ductwork and duct leakage can overwork your HVAC unit leading to early failure. Once our health problems are corrected, our breathing becomes easier and pain goes away just as correcting ductwork issues recaptures the lost capacity of your heating and cooling system, dramatically impacting your home's comfort and energy efficiency.
Flex ductwork is commonly used in Phoenix homes built in 1980 or later. This type of ductwork became popular because of it's simplicity to install, however, best practices in duct design and installation are rarely followed or simply ignored. In addition, some flex ducts begin to split, crumble and need to be replaced or spliced to remain functional.
Sheet Metal Ductwork
While sheet metal ductwork is better for airflow and durability than flex ductwork, homes built with sheet metal ductwork are plagued with undersized return lines and supply registers too close to the return.
