How many types of ducts in air conditioning system?
It varies for each home. A manual J, D, & S should be performed to determine the amount/size of ductwork that is needed.

Answer over simplified but very usable . Hi:. Here is a simplified breakdown for your question. I can get way more specific and into way more detail (but) if you ask someo…ne what time it is,,, do you really want them to teach you how to build a clock?. 1... Assuming the application design criteria is for say ( an average home ) and you have pretty much . establish the type and tonnage of the system you require to be fairly accurate then we can go one step further. Homes, Businesses, Churches, and in general a multitude of applications basically have basic design rules that vary from one to another. A important factor would be the speed of the air flowing through the ducts, vents, and returns. Air can get pretty loud rushing through a pipe or into a pipe via some form of vent or return. In general Churches require a very quiet air flow design and homes also need to be quiet though not necessarily as quiet as a church. Of course, a bowling alley or bar with loud bands and such,,, ( well,,, not so quiet required ) Now you may be wondering ,,, hmmmmmmmmmmmm????? ,,,, soooooo,,, how do I get easy hands on and in general duct design sizes along with vent and return sizes for my application. The answer is fairly simple believe it or not. Use a factory design guide usually available from where you purchase your equipment. Kewl Huh !!! The return air grill or filter grill is basically like this,,, ( larger is better). Of course,,, within reason. Filters do a better job if the air flowing through them is at a slower rate of speed. ( Makes sense huh ! ) So, larger area will give you reduced air speed and not surprisingly quieter operation. So,,, look up the criteria that your unit has as to how many cubic feet a minute of air flow it is designed to work well at. Then take into account some area's or rooms simply will require % wise air flow than others to be comfy in for various factors usually refered to as heat load. common sense will tell you which areas will on average require more of your % of available systems abilities. If your still with me ( wow ) match all this up with your ductwork and grill supplier charts and recommendations for their products and viola!!!! ( Neat huh ? ) Remember,,,, this is a compacted answer,,,, so don't go puttin it under a microscope 10X on me. Honestly though,,, you'll be surprised how well things will work out though.. Jimiwane
The GMC is the vehicle that has the Sierra model.
What company makes a high pressure home heating and air conditioning system that uses the existing ducts for both sets of pipes?
http://www.unicosystem.com/. This is a high velocity system, hopefully what you are looking for.
There are three main types of air ducts: sheet metal,pre-insulated, and flexible duct work. Sheet metal air ducts can be made of galvanized steel or aluminum,and may be insul…ated inside or outside with fiberglass. There are pre-insulated air ducts, which are relatively inexpensiveto install, made of fiberglass duct board, polyurethane foampanels, or phenolic foam panels. Air ducts can also be flexible ducts, made of flexible plastic overa wire coil.

Have them cleaned if you are so inclined, but otherwise nothing other than checking to make sure there are no air leaks and that if any ducts are located in an unconditioned s…pace such as an attic that the insulation is sound with no tears or loose seams so as to prevent condensation from forming on the exposed surface of the duct and dripping water into your home. Also check that the units condensate drain is clear and that the pump (if you have one) works properly,
It can, but it's not usually a good idea. It is hard to protect from the weather, and it will heat up from the sun and reduce the efficiency of the installation. Putting it in… an attic or crawl space and ventilating the space with a small fan or cross-ventilation is far more efficient.
A factory GM system which uses R134a Freon...........
For automobiles there are many but the two major ones are R-12 and R134a.. . For the home there are various types of air conditioners like window air conditioner, split air c…onditioner, packaged air conditioner and central air conditioning system..... . Most home systems use R-22 refrigerant but R-410a is also an increasingly used refrigerant known as PURON...................
it is but i think its against health laws
The "duct" in an air conditioning and/or heating system is the sheet metal conduit that carries the conditioned air to the perimeter of a structure and back to the HVAC unit. …Typically in a residential application it appears as a square or rectangular metal trunk line centrally located on the ceiling of a basement, with round metal run outs coming off the top of the trunk line and running towards the perimeter of the house.

a number of options are available: 1) surface mounted under the roof with them either being visible or boxed in 2) fan-assisted and floor fixed 3) fixed and insulated… well to exterior of the roof construction 4) externally to the walls Alternatively, build the roof higher and hide the ducts that way
In Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning
Standard A standard air conditioner filter is made of spun fiberglass and have cardboard frames. It is only capable of removing 10 percent of airborne pollutants. Standard ai…r conditioner filters only remove larger particles and do not filter harmful allergens and contaminants very well. You have to change these filters every month. Pleated The next type of air conditioner filter is pleated. They are manufactured by folding filter material back and forth and have a larger surface area than standard filters. They are capable of removing 35 to 40 percent of harmful particles in the air. Pleated air conditioner filters are slightly more expensive than standard air conditioner filters and you need to replace them once every three months. Electrostatic An electrostatic air conditioner filter uses filter media that has an electric charge that attracts contaminants. They can have a built-in electrostatic charge, or else create a charge from the air moving through the system. Electrostatic air conditioner filters can remove around 90 percent of particles and cost anywhere from $30 to $100. You only need to replace them once every three months. HEPA Another type of air conditioner filter is HEPA, or High Efficiency Particulate Arresting filter. They are able to trap 99.97% of contaminants including fibers, dust, smoke, and pet dander. They can effectively trap particles 1/300th the width of a human hair. Electronic You can also use an electronic air cleaner in your air conditioner. Although these air cleaners function much like electrostatic filters, they are more effective. They use a fan to trap up to 95 percent of particles in an electrostatic precipitator. These devices are usually recommended if you have allergies.

It Depends on the model not the HP HP (horse power) is the speed of the motor the size of the appliance in question (is it a portable or a fixed unit), its output (how m…uch air it throws out) and HP all combined together determine its BTU. For example, upgrading a 1HP motor to a 6 HP motor in a tiny desktop AC is not going to change it's BTU, it will just waste energy and probably start a fire!
In Home Appliances
You can install ducted air conditioning in your home by firstly installing the ductal air systems in your home. After that, you can install the conditioning units on the outsi…de, in order for your environment to be fully conditioned.
In order to make the choice between ducted air conditioning and a split system air-conditioning, one would need to do some research and read up reviews form the sides to make… a decision that is best for them, their pocket and their location.
