Benefit of Fabric Duct for Home Application
The application of fabric duct was proven has better performance compared to metal duct for cool air distribution.
Metal duct systems discharge usually spaced 10 to 15 feet apart. The air is directed to specific zones resulting in less
efficient mixing of air in the occupied space and often causing drafting and hot or cold spots. With a fabric duct air
distribution system, the air is discharged more uniformly along the entire length of the fabric duct system providing
consistent and uniform air distribution in the occupied space. Uniform air distribution means better air mixing. Besides that,
there are much more benefit and as a result this technology usually used for big space such as food industries, laboratories
and clean rooms, offices, public space, schools, showrooms, multi-purpose halls, and much more. But this technology also
has a potential to apply for home air conditioner with big living hall. This paper reviews the benefit of fabric duct technology
for home application. Discussions cover all benefit of fabric duct for home application in term of hygienic, energy
efficiency, practicality for maintenance, safety, and also aesthetic value. Hopefully it can guide further study on detail
specification of fabric duct for home application.
