RE: So, what qualfies as decent ductwork?

A few ideas without confusing you.

1.good well thought out design

2.correct sizing depending on amount of air to be moved

3.adequate return properly located for best airflow

4.prefer galv ductwork sealed properly to minimize leakage not care for flex although supply runs are acceptable; suggest check code for your area

6.good insulation of ductwork R8 depending on location

7.minimal damper controls

These are just some ideas; I am sure others can add to the list.
