The term “HVAC” is thrown around a lot, but what does the “V” actually stand for? Ventilation. HVAC is an acronym for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. Usually the emphasis is on heating and A/C, but ventilation is important too. In order for air — hot or cold — to be delivered appropriately throughout your home, you need a good duct system. At MTB, we take the same careful and analytical approach to ventilation that we do with heating and air. For example, when we’re working on new construction, we custom design all of our duct systems to deliver the most efficient heating and cooling.Your ductwork directly affects:
Temperature — Hot and cold spots could be the result of poor ductwork.
Efficiency — Ductwork that isn’t properly sealed, and poor insulation, can lead to air traveling to unconditioned areas such as attics and crawl spaces. This makes your HVAC system work harder.
Dust — There is a direct correlation between indoor air quality and the quality of your ductwork. Lower-quality ductwork can compromise your family’s health with dust, dirt, pollen and germs circulating through the air.
