Better than Flex Ducts?


I am looking for ideas on a better duct than the normal Flex duct. I am looking for something tighter and with more insulation.

Thanks
Jeff

round pre fab metal duct's offer less resistance and if you duct seal it can be just as tight , you have to insulate yourself though and thats a pain . flex is good if its r-8 insulation and used sparsly. to do a full duct system with hard pipe is almost a lost art ( not realy )

Yeah I have looked into that for my clients but have found that realy nobody wants to pay the difference. Have you ever seen a Flex duct with better insulataion or a better R Value?

Thanks Geo Fan
