Technical Requirements for Duct System in New York

Technical requirements for duct systems are governed by the New York State codes for duct systems. KD Environmental Consulting Services is aware of all compliance codes and recommends services accordingly. We offer duct testing & inspection services for homes & commercial buildings in New York.

Materials used in internal insulation should be durable when tested in accordance with UL 181. Ducts that operate at temperatures exceeding 120°F (49°C) shall have sufficient thermal insulation to limit the exposed surface temperature to 120°F (49°C). Similarly, we will ensure that your HVAC duct system meets the technical requirements governed by the state.

Important Aspects for Duct Systems

More aspects to pay attention to include:

  • Proper size: The size of ducts must be appropriate for the airflow required by the HVAC system. If the ducts are too small, the system may not be able to provide adequate heating or cooling to the space. If they are too large, it can lead to air leakage and inefficiencies.
  • Adequate insulation: Ducts must be properly insulated to prevent energy loss and condensation. Insulation also helps to reduce noise and improve indoor air quality.
  • Sealing: All joints and connections in the duct system must be properly sealed to prevent air leaks. Sealing is critical to ensure that the HVAC system operates efficiently and provides optimal comfort to the occupants.
  • Proper placement: Ducts should be installed in areas where they will not be exposed to extreme temperatures or moisture. They should also be located in areas where they will not be easily damaged or obstructed.
  • Compliance with local codes: All ductwork must comply with local building codes and regulations, including fire safety requirements.
