Duct systems air conditioners distribute heat and cold air through a network of ducts. A condenser, compressor, and air handling device are typical components found in the basement, attic, or garage. Central air conditioning systems rely heavily on ductwork, an essential component. These systems can be used with heating coils or furnaces to provide additional heating capacity.
Ductwork for heating and cooling differs depending on the type of ductwork used. Central air ducts are permanent structures that distribute air throughout your house. They are available in different configurations depending on the materials used in their construction.
Ducts are required for the traditional central heating and air conditioning systems to function properly. bluefrog of San Antonio, TX, provides professional ducting services. We ensure that the HVAC system’s ductwork is properly planned out based on the home’s layout.
Materials used in ducting are categorized by their purpose and use. The materials used to manufacture ducting nowadays are listed below.
Galvanized steel is the most extensively used material in central heating and air conditioning systems. It is found in most homes and companies, and it’s one of the cheapest materials available. Further, the zinc coating prevents rusting of galvanized steel ducting during installation.
Flex ductwork is manufactured by pouring a flexible plastic over a metal wire coil in the shape of a tube and allowing it to cool. This ductwork joins air supply outlets to rigid ducting as a cost-effective workaround suitable for some installations.
Aluminum ducting is suited for a wide range of applications due to its great flexibility and light weight. It is easier to set up and requires less time than most other materials. Because aluminum ducting is easier to cut and shape than steel or copper, it’s frequently used in situations requiring innovative ductwork designs.
Fiberglass ducting is used to install duct systems in homes and businesses where quiet operation is essential. The fiberglass ducting features insulated panels built to reduce HVAC system noise. It’s popular because of its light weight and ease of installation.
Like the rest of the ductwork mentioned above, fiberglass ducting is usually referred to as a distribution device for warm or cool air. In particular, it helps distribute cool air more evenly, which is essential during hot, humid days in the deep south.
The manufacturer’s pre-insulated air ducts are sometimes known as PU or Phenolic Insulation Panels. Unlike aluminum and sheet metal ductwork, pre-insulated air ducts do not require further insulation after installation. This ducting can be erected in a single stage, saving time, making it an attractive choice for duct system materials.

The vents used in ducted air conditioning systems are designed to be discreet and unobtrusive. These solutions are appropriate for persons who place high importance on appearances.
Humidity is eliminated more efficiently by ducted air conditioning than ductless air conditioning systems. However, it’s important to partner with the right contractor to prevent leaks and other issues over the life cycle of your ductwork.
