IBACOS Presents on High Performance HVAC Options at the Pennsylvania Housing Research Center
The Time is Now: Advances in Small Ducts and Comfort
Pennsylvania Housing Research Center
Small-duct systems have had a bad rap for some time, but that seems about to change. As homes perform better, traditional ducted HVAC systems are no longer a surefire choice for providing comfort and efficiency. Small ducts offer builders potential solutions to many of those performance issues, and the options available are likely to expand. During this session, we examined some of the latest on our ongoing research in small-duct systems, including a small manifold system, how one production builder is looking at small ducts as a solution for high performance townhomes, and how we see small-duct systems evolving to meet industry needs.
By attending this session, participants:
Recognized the advantages of right-sizing both ducts and thermal capacity in HVAC systems for high performance homes and be able to implement that knowledge in system planning
Identifed the challenges to ensuring comfort in high performance homes that can arise from using traditional HVAC sizing methods
Understand the current state of small-duct HVAC system research and how this research may apply to the residential building industry
Gained an understanding of the potential role for small ducts in HVAC systems for high performance homes and insight into the future direction of innovations
