Kingspan Industrial Insulation - HVAC Ductwork

Research from Sweett (UK) Limited has revealed “whole life” HVAC savings of over 25% can be achieved by specifying The Kingspan KoolDuct System over traditional galvanised sheet metal ductwork.

The report, commissioned by Kingspan Insulation, looks in detail at the capital and life cycle cost benefits of differing HVAC ductwork specifications.

In the construction industry, developers, funding bodies and manufacturers have historically focused on achieving a low capital cost in order to improve profits. However, for buildings that are let / rented out under contracts, which include ongoing maintenance and services provision by the lessor, or for buildings developed for forward thinking clients, operating cost can be just as important as capital cost in building design.

'Whole life costing' takes account of the total cost of an item over its life, including, but not limited to, capital, operating and maintenance costs. This white paper details the analysis of the whole life costs of differing insulated HVAC ductwork specifications. The findings show that:

The Kingspan KoolDuct System can provide a capital cost saving of over 21%; and
over a 30 year life cycle, The Kingspan KoolDuct System can provide an operating and whole life cost saving of over 20%.
