Air conditioning has become a really important part of our life. Almost every household and every workplace are installed with an air conditioner or heaters. A really complex system is used to install these air conditioners and to distribute the cool or warm air flowing out of it equally. To enable equal distribution of air at a place flexible ducting plays a vital role. Even at a large office flexible ducting is used to keep every corner of the office cool.
Flexible ducting is not only applicable to pass air, but it may also pass water or gases. Some examples of these ducts are the air conditioning ducts at our homes and offices or the water duct which helps the water to flow out of the air conditioner. Another example of the gas duct is the duct used in our kitchens or the kitchens in restaurants where gas is passed to keep the flame burning.
Advantages of Flexible Ducting
- The wire is reinforced with these types of the flexible ducting system which can be turned off and folded as per our need.
- Its round shape enables it to turn and pass air through anywhere.
- The potential for leakage is the least.
- They cost less when compared to another ductwork.
We are all aware of the fact that installing a different air conditioner in each room can be a really expensive way of keeping your home cool so in order to help you with that flexible ducting can be used. It allows cool air to flow from a main unit to the desired place. Since these ducts are highly flexible it is easy to get them removed or change their direction.
These flexible ducting systems are really easy to install and since they are already insulated you do not need to worry about the insulating charges. This type of ductwork is really easy to install, and the installation process requires very less time when compared to the installation time of the conventional ducting system.
The flexible ducting system is very cheap and so it helps in saving some amount and its flexible property allows it to reach almost anywhere and keep the desired part or section cool. At some places, this flexible ducting is also used to transport water. In a water part, you may have often noticed these flexible ducting systems allowing the workers at the waterparks to fill in pools very quickly and efficiently.
HVAC technology is the generally uses the flexible ducting system. Places with very little space or which has tight turnings are the places where this ductwork can be installed really easily. Imagine installing a copper duct which is impossible to turn and twist at a place where the pattern is zig-zag. It would require a lot of time, engineering and plan to install these types of system but with the help of flexible ducting system the problem is resolved, and it can be easily installed at a very low cost.
The maintenance cost of the flexible ducting system is also very cheap. It demands maintenance only at the time of some leakage which is seen very rarely in this system. The only thing which is to be cleaned is the water which gets accumulated in the ducts and the procedure is so simple and a layman can do it which saves all the heavy servicing charges. Flexible ducting is indeed a blessing for people who cannot afford to get various air conditioning systems installed or for people who live in very large houses as they cannot get the access of cool air in every corner of the house.
