Redirect Airflow With A Ductwork Booster Fan
Most homes with forced heating system and air conditioning only have one fan to propel and distribute the heated or cooled air around the house. Many home owners complain about part of their houses or rooms that have inadequate temperature change. This problem may be because of these reasons:
• The room cannot be reached by the system because it is too far from the furnace.
• You might have added additional room in your house that is already out of the capacity of heating system.
• You have poor insulation in that room.
• You might have large number of windows in that room.
• The ductwork you have is not sized properly.
• Ductworks are leaky or shaky
• Your heating system does not have enough fan or stage blower.
If a homeowner wanted to solve their heating or cooling problems, they might consider installing a ductwork booster fan. An inline booster fan is installed inside the ductwork that leads to the problem room. The fan usually opens to push air when the certain room needs to be heated or cooled. The increase of air inside the duct towards the certain room vent solves the inadequate heating or cooling problem.
If you consider installing ductwork booster fan to redirect airflow, you might consider these points before buying.
• Know the duct size of the area where you would install the fan.
Install the fan at least five duct diameter away from any electrical connections (the equivalent duct diameter is the size of the duct where the fan is located then multiplied by five), and to a place where it can be easily replaced or cleaned up.
