Replaceable Duct Types
The most common duct types out there, in residential homes, are:
- flexible ducts
- Metal Ducts
- Fiberglass Ducts
Every duct type has a purpose and built for specific building code in different states in the US. Duct Pros professionals specialize in all types of air duct replacement.
Flexible ducts are most commonly used in Houston TX home’s HVAC systems. They used for supply air lines to extend the air from the main duct or the main unit to different areas in the house. A solid metal wire acts as the core that holds the plastic duct. Galvanized metal is preferred to resist corrosion and maintain the duct flexibility. Flexible ducts are usually covered with insulation to keep hot or cold air at the desired temperature.
Metal ducts are made from galvanized steel, to prevent corrosion and are very durable. Metal duct work is mostly used for supply heating and air systems or main ductwork in the east coast of the US. Replacing metal ducts requires much expertise and should be done only by a professional like the ones at Duct Pros.
Fiberglass ducts are made from a compacted version of the duct insulation, forming a solid, highly insulating material that is used to build heating and air ductwork. Fiberglass ducts are used for main ducts construction, from which all supply ducts are branching out of. Its very hard to clean fiberglass ducts as various brushes could harm the integrity of the ducts and contaminate the indoors with microscopic fiberglass fibers.
