Balanced ducting (post #193216)

Any recommendations on good books, etc for designing balanced ductwork for ERV/HRV applications. 

Duct design (post #193216, reply #1 of 4)

of any practical sense, is not really covered in a book. At least not that I have ever seen. I learned to design ductwork based on the "equal friction" method, by manual means (pencil, paper and a Trane Ductulator). SMACNA (sheet metal and airconditioner contractors national assocaition) has some duct design manuals.

You may check on the websites of the manufacturers for non-commercial products like LifeBreath. Look for application guides and/or manuals.

Thanks for the reply.  Will (post #193216, reply #2 of 4)
