Luther Home of Mercy


A study was undertaken which compares the performance and costs of two different air distribution systems in two buildings - both are virtually identical in all respects except for their HVAC ductwork specification. One building is serviced by ductwork fabricated from The Kingspan KoolDuct System, and the other by traditional sheet metal ductwork insulated with glass fibre wrap. 

The study showed that:

  • Ductwork fabricated from The Kingspan KoolDuct System proved to be more airtight, with an air leakage rate 80% less than that of the glass fiber insulated sheet metal.
  • Ductwork fabricated from The Kingspan KoolDuct System proved to be more cost-effective than the sheet metal equivalent, saving nearly 17% on capital cost.
  • In addition, it is predicted to save 7.5% on operational cost, and, over a 30 year period, an estimated 14% on whole life cost.
