3. The system wiII operate most efficiently when the ductwork
does not exceed 40 feet of equivalent
duct. The chart,
above, shows equivalent
feet of eibows and transitions.
The number of feet of straight duct pius the equivalent feet
of transitions and/or elbows to be used should equal 40
feet or less.
