DUCTING AIR CONDITIONING HEATING and VENTILATIONS
Ducting is a key part of central air-conditioning system, Heating & Ventilations. It plays a very important role in adjusting air condition in buildings. The air condition and appearance of buildings are related with duct quality. The material used for duct is constantly evolving in order to satisfy the demand for higher and higher quality, greater respect for the environment, and increased savings in energy.
Duct has been steadily developed and spread around the world, as its application has been gradually extended to every type of air distribution system: industrial, civil and commercial.
Air ducts, or ducts , as they are often referred to, are basically sheets of metal or metal tubes that carry cool and hot air throughout a specific location.
A duct system is often called ductwork. Planning (laying out), sizing, optimizing, detailing, and finding the pressure losses through a duct system is called duct design.
Part of your routine air conditioning maintenance should be air duct cleaning. If you have a residential air conditioning system, oftentimes you can clean the ductwork yourself. However, in commercial air con ducting or industrial air conditioning duct systems, where the duct work is fairly large and a maze of pipes, hiring an air duct service would be advisable because they come with special air duct cleaning equipment to properly clean the entire ductwork.
If not properly cleaned and maintained, air ducts can become a breeding ground for molds and other air pollutants

Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. In addition, poor indoor air quality can cause headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue. People who already have respiratory diseases are at greater risk.
Each person inhales over 3,500 gallons of air each day. Children inhale more air for their size than adolescents or adults.
