What Materials Make Up Air Ducts?

Air ducts are used in heating, air conditioning, and ventilation systems to remove or deliver cooled or heated air to different rooms. They then return the same amount of air back to your HVAC system. Air ducts are extremely important in maintaining regular air filtration. There are a few types of air ducts that are used. Air duct materials can be flexible or hard depending on the type. We install, replace, and clean all air ducts. Listed below are some of the different types of ducts you may have in your home. 

Galvanized Steel

This is a commonly used material for fabricating air ducts because of its zinc coating. This helps to prevent rusting and expensive painting costs. These air ducts are lined or wrapped with fiberglass blankets to help insulation. 


Aluminum is lightweight and extremely easy to install. This makes it great for an air duct material and is widely used in Houston homes. 

Fiberglass Ducts

Fiberglass ducts are very common ducts. They have both external and internal linings. This is a popular air duct material for commercial properties because they help drown out the sound of the HVAC unit.

Flexible Ducting

Flexible ducts are tube-shaped and usually made up of a wire coil. These ducts are covered with bendable plastic that is surrounded by insulation. These ducts are perfect for areas where rigid air ducts may be more difficult to install.
