Most commercial and industrial facilities need ductwork for basic operation of their HVAC systems. Whether it’s for ventilation of fumes, proper circulation of fresh air, or the distribution of cooling and heating, these ducts handle a great deal of work.

But the small savings from standard ductwork isn’t worth much in the long run, especially when a facility’s ventilation system is expected to work for 10 to 15 years. Customized ductwork offers several major advantages. Here are five of the best reasons to either install customized ductwork or have it replace your existing pre-fabricated ductwork.
