Homeowner complaints about thermal comfort lead to service calls, lower customer satisfaction. Moisture issues in Hot-Humid climates with oversized equipment result in short-cycling and risk for mold. Right-Sizing an HVAC system properly includes calculating the proper load per room in both cooling and heating.
The right airfl ow is as important in considering the load per room as the BTUs. With it’s built-in gaskets, the Smart Duct System® can provide a system leakage of 5% or less. thus in combination with the controls we developed at Dettson for this specifi c system, our HVAC in a box® solution is designed to run at a low to medium velocity in terms of static pressure, offering a quiet / comfortable operation for the occupant and system effi cacy for the effi cient home.
Our vision behind this system is called HVAC in a box®, allowing the builder to eliminate bulkheads and added expenses, while optimizing fl oor plan designs. The High Performance homes environment appreciates the longer cycles that is offered by the lower airfl ow in combination of the right BTUs. Our HVAC in a Box® concept also includes zoning capabilities. As loads in High Performance homes go lower, volume of required conditioned air drops, causing a decline in performance for traditional duct systems. With the builders’ requirements in mind as well as the building science community’s input, Dettson Industries is now offering the Right-Sized System® in combination to the Smart Duct System®. Since just like equipment, ducts need to be sized appropriately.
