Every Asheboro, North Carolina, home is unique. That’s why you need HVAC solutions that are equally distinctive. Whether you’re updating your existing home or working on a new construction, custom ductwork can provide the efficiency and comfort you need at an affordable price. Don’t default to a standard design if it’s not delivering the energy efficiency and even cooling that you need. Here’s are four reasons you need custom ductwork:
You’re Suffering Poor Energy Efficiency
Are your utility bills higher than you’d like? If your energy bills are increasing, your home’s HVAC system could be to blame.
Your first plan of action should be to call a service technician for a diagnosis. Scheduling overdue system maintenance or taking care of a critical HVAC repair may solve your issue. If not, you should turn to your ductwork.
In many homes, ductwork is improperly sized and inefficiently sealed. A custom installation can solve both problems. Installing the right size ductwork can dramatically improve your energy costs. If your ducts are too small, your system will work harder than necessary to push air through the home. If the ducts are too large, you may suffer from uneven heating and cooling.
Your Home’s Layout is Tricky
Designing efficient ductwork takes a skilled hand. If your home is particularly large or has seen a lot of renovations over the years, it may have a unique layout that requires some extra creativity when it comes to your ductwork design. Ideally, your system will have no more than three wye splits. You lose efficiency with each split and increase your overall HVAC load.
Our specialists can design efficient ductwork for your home that minimizes splits and features efficient ducts coming directly from the main supply plenum. This design will provide optimum energy efficiency for your home’s layout.
You’re Completing a Home Renovation
If you’re about to renovate your home, this is the perfect time to give us a call to discuss your HVAC options. When you’re constructing an addition with heating or cooling, it’s crucial that you address key considerations with your furnace and air conditioner. Custom ductwork is the best way to retrofit your current HVAC system to accommodate your new addition.
You should also have your new and improved home sized to determine whether your existing air conditioning and heating systems are large enough to handle the added space. Consider installing a new HVAC system that’s better sized for your newly renovated home.
You Have a Historic Home
If you have a historic home, it may have been constructed before heating and cooling were standard features. If this is the case, you’ll need to be very careful about adding ductwork to the building. You want to incorporate efficient HVAC systems into your home, but you don’t want to damage the historic appeal of the structure. Working with our sheet metal fabricators, you can design a custom ductwork plan that works beautifully with your historic home.
If you find that even custom ducts aren’t quite working for your historic space, we offer ductless mini-splits, as well. This is a handy alternative in homes where you can’t efficiently add ductwork. You’ll still enjoy efficient cooling without the need for ducts. These systems feature one outdoor unit and up to eight indoor units. A small 3-inch hole in the wall connects the indoor and outdoor units, so you can enjoy simple installation that has a minimal impact on your historic home.
