Removing ductwork in soffit...


I am researching the possibility of removing the soffit (and ductwork) that runs basically through my entire house. But after researching the web I have gathered that the soffit is there to insulate the ductwork from the volatile attic temps, particularly in the summer (I live in Scottsdale). I don't see why this is such a big deal because the soffit is exposed directly to the rest of the attic, with nothing seperating the two but some old 1970's pink insulation. Couldn't I just remove the eyesore soffit and replace all this ductwork in the house with the round type ducting that snakes through the attic, and vents through the ceiling into each room?

Thanks.

Why in the world would you want to remove the soffit?

If I were to remove the soffit, it would open up the interior more. The ceilings would be much higher throughout the house, and just be more roomy.
