Overall HVAC system efficiency is affected by both the efficiency of the equipment itself and the way the equipment interacts with the other components of the HVAC system. Ducts play a key role in energy usage from both how much friction the fan "sees" as it moves air throughout the duct system to how well they distribute heating and cooling to keep occupants comfortable.
Ducts that are improperly constructed, sealed, or installed can leak excessive amounts of air, provide poor air distribution, and can also "pipe" noise around the building. This 4-hr course outlines the common components of a duct system, the classification of duct systems, and the common layout and construction techniques.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
