Dettson Smart Duct System with Zoning

EIN Dettson Smart Duct 400

August 6, 2021

As loads in High Performance homes go lower, volume of required conditioned air drops, causing a decline in performance for traditional duct systems.

The Smart Duct System® was designed with the builders’ requirements in mind as well as the building science community’s input.

Ideal system for:

  • High performance / Passive Builders;
  • Net-Zero or Net-Zero Ready Builders;
  • Townhomes / Low-rise condos;
  • Home additions (basement development, in-law suite, garage);
  • Modular (RTM ) Builders.

Our Smart Duct System aims to provide the right airflow, which is as important as the BTUs.

This system offers numerous benefits to the builders, building science, mechanical contractor, and the homeowners:

  • Duct leakage of 5% or less when properly assembled.

  • Destratification: no cold or hot spot

  • Less soffits and bulkheads because of small ducts

  • More floor space because there is no grill or register on the floor but diffusors up onto the walls

  • Easy to install

  • Quieter, more comfortable home

The High Performance homes environment appreciates the longer cycles that is offered by the lower airflow in combination of the right BTUs.
