Energy conservation

Energy conservation

Not only is there a significant carbon saving on the installation of Spiralite, there are also meaningful energy savings (measured at up to 48%) on the subsequent operation of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system.

These systems can account for the majority of money spent by an organisation on energy. Even small adjustments to these systems can significantly improve the working environment and at the same time, save money. Conserving energy is about using the airflow in the most efficient way, eliminating leakage and maintaining the system at all times.

Spiralite ductwork conserves energy mainly through:

  • Excellent thermal performance characteristics – the rigid phenolic insulation panels used in its manufacture have a very low thermal conductivity, (0.021 W/m-k) and are of a closed cell construction which means that they are resistant to moisture absorption and therefore heat losses/gains are minimised
  • The ductwork being insulated over its entire length with its own vapour seals
  • The circular shape and smooth interior optimises air flow efficiencies and reduces pressure drops
  • Maximum airtightness results in minimal air leakage rates
  • The internal connections allow no thermal bridge for temperature loss and are also airtight

It’s good to know that Spiralite ductwork saves energy, cuts costs and reduces environmental impact wherever it is specified.
