Five Reasons to Choose Spiral Ductwork

If you’re looking to renew your HVAC ductwork, there’s an alternative to the traditional rectangular ducting. Spiral ducting has several performance benefits that make it the savvy choice for your ducting requirements.

Space Saving

Unlike rectangular ducts, a spiral duct may not require reinforced joints. That means your builder can install this type of ductwork in a more compact space.

Lower Noise Levels

Conventional ducting can have a high level of noise thanks to the turbulence of the air current flowing around dampers, vanes and sharp edges. Each obstruction causes further noisy turbulence. Each obstruction causes further noisy turbulence. These excessive noise levels are not an issue with spiral ducting, which has no sharp corners and allows air to flow freely and smoothly.

Energy Saving

Poorly insulated and sealed ducts can be responsible for significant energy loss. That’s because any air leakage will adversely impact on your HVAC system, resulting in energy loss. This can’t happen with a spiral duct system from a good dust spares supplier. Spiral ducting is self-sealing, so no air is lost where joints occur. Another benefit of these airtight spiral ducts is that they distribute air throughout the system more smoothly, which in turn means the system operates at higher efficiency. The end result is a system that will reduce the costs of heating and air conditioning.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

Spiral ducts are lightweight and easy to install when compared to rectangular ducting. Therefore installation is more straightforward and cost-effective – sometimes up to 50% cheaper than rectangular ducting – and may even make using ducting a choice where rectangular ducting would not have met the demands of the installation. With fewer parts, spiral ducts are easier to transport and store, and the final installation doesn’t require skilled workmen, as is often the case with rectangular ducting. All this adds up to a more efficient system that is also much easier to keep clean and to maintain.

Less Illness

Air leakage can have an adverse impact on internal air quality. In some buildings the threat of ‘Sick Building Syndrome’ means there’s a higher demand for fresh clean air throughout the building. In other installations it’s the threat of air-borne viruses that give traditional HVAC ducting a bad name.
