For your commercial HVAC system to perform at its best, you need sturdy, dependable air ducts made to serve your facility's needs.

How High-Quality Commercial Ductwork Installations Serve Up Savings
According to U.S. Department of Energy analyses, climate control and ventilation account for some 40% of operating expenses in commercial buildings. Ready for an even more eye-opening statistic? In a typical commercial HVAC system, about 30% of that money simply goes to waste. There are many causes for this inefficiency, but improperly installed ductwork is often a primary contributor.
Poorly built air ducts make it harder for your HVAC system to circulate and distribute air. In addition to wasting energy via leaks, this also increases wear and tear on equipment. Conversely, thoughtfully designed and skillfully installed ductwork supports effortlessly smooth, well-balanced airflow throughout your entire building. This can increase efficiency, improve equipment reliability and longevity, enhance comfort and ultimately lower operating costs.

Six Signs Your Commercial Air Ducts Need Replacing
When properly installed and serviced, well-made modern air ducts frequently last 20 years or more without much difficulty. By contrast, it's not uncommon for older systems to begin developing problems within 10 to 15 years of installation. Inadequate maintenance, sloppy workmanship and poor design can further shorten your ductwork's expected lifespan. Since air ducts are often hidden or difficult to access, however, it isn't always apparent when they should be replaced. To prevent problematic ductwork from degrading your HVAC system's effectiveness, keep an eye out for red flags like:
- Dents, holes, corrosion or other damage
- Sagging, kinks or separated joints
- Excessive dust or poor air quality
- Weak airflow or uneven temperatures
- Unexpectedly high energy bills
- Unpleasant odors or organic growth
