Better Duct Systems for Home Heating and Cooling

Research output: NRELBrochure


Duct systems used in forced-air space-conditioning systems are a vital element in home energy efficiency. How well a system works makes a big difference in the cost and the effectiveness of heating and cooling a home. At the same time, a duct system that is poorly designed or maintained can have a detrimental effect on the health of the people who live in the house, through the unintendeddistribution of indoor air pollution.
