Ductwork Design & Installation

Community Heating and Air is one of the Chester County’s leading specialists in the design and installation of duct work for residential, historic and older homes.

Homes that were designed with older heating & cooling equipment often need to have new air ducts installed when converting to some of the more energy efficient systems. A primary reason to install ducts and vents for most homeowners is central air conditioning. Replacing cumbersome, noisy window air conditioning units while remaining less conspicuous than whole-home wall units, central air is one of the most significant home improvement upgrade. It adds incredible comfort to a home by providing even, whole-house cooling. It is also more convenient because it operates via the same thermostat as your heating system, ensuring that your home is always set at an optimal temperature throughout the year.

One of the most important parts of proper installation is insuring that the ductwork can deliver correct air flow to maintain comfort in the house, while still meeting all manufacturers’ specifications. Community Heating and Air is ACCA Manual D certified. Manual D provides proper design, sizing, and installation of residential duct systems. Ductwork design is extremely important to prevent air and energy leaks, in addition to humidity and moisture problems. Poor ductwork design can seriously affect your comfort, indoor air quality, energy costs, and system lifespan.
