HVAC INDUSTRY NEWS
SDHV Manual D Duct Design The New Wave of HVAC System Design.

Every industry undergoes changes from time to time. As new technologies are discovered and developed, it takes time for those new technologies to hit the mainstream and be accepted for everyday use as the new industry standard. In the world of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), the latest development to fall into this category is the development of small duct, high velocity (SDHV) systems. 

Instead of relying on a traditional system using large ducts to move a large volume of heated or cooled air into a home, it uses small ducts to force large amounts of air into the home at a high velocity. This means that there also needs to be SDHV Manual D duct design to accommodate these systems.


 

SDHV allows more flexibility and more efficiency in a duct design. While it might take some time for this to catch on in the mainstream so that homeowners are demanding SDHV designs, the industry is heading in that direction, so it's imperative that engineering companies begin offering SDHV Manual D duct design services to accommodate the growing demand for SDHV systems. If a company wants to stay relevant, it's of utmost importance to be on the crest of a new wave instead of lagging behind it.

Along with SDHV Manual D duct design, engineering companies should also think about other related services that will become necessary as SDHV continues to grow in popularity. Systems utilizing SDHV such as SpacePak and Unico will not only need Manual D duct design, but will also need Manual J load calculations and Manual S equipment selection to accommodate an SDHV system in order to function at maximum efficiency. A company can't provide one service without providing the others and still expect to be taken seriously by contractors who are looking to stay on the cutting edge of industry technology. 

Engineering is a key aspect of the HVAC industry. Without engineers to assist them with Manual J load calculations, Manual S equipment selection, and, now, SDHV Manual D duct design, the industry simply can't move forward with the new technologies that it wants to implement. Ultimately, in order for the HVAC industry to move forward in technology, the engineering companies need to lead the way instead of waiting for a demand to form. They can act as the catalyst to help the industry to move at lightning speed instead of at a snail's pace.
