Round Ductwork Provides Many Benefits
Round ductwork costs less than rectangular during installation, states SEMCO LLC. Also, round ductwork comes in longer pieces, requiring fewer joints. With fewer corners and areas for dust to accumulate, round ductwork works better for those with allergies.
Rectangular Duct Works Well in Small Areas
Sometimes a building has limited space above the ceilings to hang ductwork. These projects require rectangular, which uses less space than round ducts, according to Snips Magazine.
Round ductwork trumps rectangular ductwork in price, efficiency and air quality, according to both Snips Magazine and SEMCO LLC. Contractors should resort to rectangular ductwork only when they have no option due to space availability.
