If it’s once again time for you to perform some routine maintenance on your commercial building’s HVAC system, there are alternative solutions that could add some value to your property and decrease the amount of money you have to spend on regular maintenance moving forward. One of the biggest such steps you can take is replacing the material used in your HVAC system with custom-fabricated sheet metal.
Sheet metal may be thin, but don’t let that fool you—it’s strong, cost-effective and highly efficient. Whether you’re working on a brand new construction project or are the facilities manager for a building that has existing ductwork in place, you can benefit from working with an HVAC sheet metal fabricator in Utah for brand new ductwork.
The biggest reason why building operators commonly use sheet metal for their ductwork is that it is capable of withstanding a great deal of pressure as well as a wide variety of weather types, including extreme temperature shifts. It will be lighter than any other material you find commonly used for ventilation ducts.
But it’s the custom nature of its fabrication that makes it so beneficial. A true ductwork professional will make you sheet metal ducts that are specifically designed for your facility, and will be able to get it done quickly because sheet metal is so cost- and time-effective.
Efficiency the biggest benefit
Probably the single-largest benefit associated with the use of sheet metal for ductwork is the efficiency it provides. You’ll be able to save a great deal of money on your energy bills moving forward, meaning the investment will pay for itself and then provide you plenty of future savings in the long run.
The fact that it is custom fabricated is highly beneficial. Many standard, generic-shaped air ducts are not as stable as custom ductwork—they frequently bend and move while in use, which results in air leaks. The more air leaks you have, the less efficient your system is and the more you’ll have to pay for lower quality results. An inefficient system runs more frequently, which increases your energy bill and lowers the lifespan of your system.
The smaller size of sheet metal ductwork allows air to flow through the ducts in lower volumes. This means the air actually gets to your rooms faster. These ducts maintain better control over the volume of the air, and the HVAC systems will not have to work as hard to pump it throughout your home.
Finally, while you’ll still need to perform some maintenance every several years, the maintenance required for sheet metal ductwork is significantly easier to accomplish. Plus, it is guaranteed to last you a whole lot longer than generic ductwork, because it has been custom designed for your space and is much more durable.
