Micro Duct HVAC



Presentation:           Micro duct HVAC systems, also call high velocity heating and cooling, provides a means to heat and air condition buildings using air without conventionally sized ducts. Micro ducts are 25% the size of conventional and fit anywhere. The aspiration style delivery method leads to less temperature difference throughout any building and removes 30% more humidity. Sound attenuator tubing reduces high velocity noise to a whisper and provides an insulated vapor barrier to prevent condensation from forming on the outside of the duct.

Speaker:                   Richard Trethewey is the founder and owner of RST, Inc. He has been in the heating and plumbing industry his whole life. He grew up working at the family's fourth generation plumbing and heating business which was started in 1902. Richard started RST, Inc. in May of 1990 as a Manufacturer’s Rep firm that would champion the best quality hydronic heating and cooling products. Starting RST, Inc allowed Richard a platform to educate and bring energy efficient and “systems” solutions to the New England market. For over 30 years, beginning in 1979, Richard has been the Plumbing and Heating Expert for the PBS series, “This Old House/Ask This Old House.”
