What is a ventilation diffuser?

What is a ventilation diffuser?

A ventilation diffuser disperses pressurised air exiting heating ventilation and air conditioning ductwork and provide a decorative finish over the grill box hole holding the ductwork in place. Without an air diffuser, the air exiting the HVAC system would travel in a straight direction.

What is the difference between grilles and diffusers?

A special device used in supplying and extracting air vertically without any kind of deflection is called a grille. A device used to direct the air at different angles by profiled blades when the air is leaving the unit and going into the space is known as a diffuser.

What does a diffuser damper do?

Ruskin model ZDD25 diffuser damper is used to vary the supply air volume from a Z2000RT wall-mounted thermostat. The diffuser is designed to maintain the coanda effect of discharge air along the ceiling. This provides a sustained discharge velocity throughout the volume range.

Where should air diffusers be placed in a room?

The ceiling is the most preferred place to install diffusers with a horizontal airflow.

What are the different types of diffusers?

Four Different Types of Oil Diffusers

  • Ultrasonic (Ultrasonic Vibration)
  • Heat (Heat)
  • Evaporative (Wind/Fan)
  • Nebuliser (Force/Atomization)

What is a HVAC diffuser?

In HVAC systems, the air supply diffuser is a device that delivers and ventilates conditioned air in an area, mixes indoor air, and manages air output. It works by reducing the air duct velocity by increasing the static pressure.

Should damper be open or closed in winter?

In most homes, dampers going to the upstairs are open in the summer and closed in the winter. By closing the dampers to the upstairs in the winter, it allows for the heat to rise naturally after first being introduced into the lower levels of the home.

How do I choose a diffuser?

The air con diffuser sizing is determined by:

  1. The area to be cooled/heated.
  2. The dimensions of the area length and width.
  3. The aesthetics of the space.
  4. The height of the ceiling.
  5. Larger diffusers/ducts move more air with less static.
  6. Undersized diffusers will restrict airflow and create noise.
  7. Correct sizing is important.

How many diffusers do I need?

If you’re trying to cover an area anywhere from 800 to 1,000 square feet, your best bet is to simply get two diffusers. Despite what some companies say, there just isn’t a diffuser that’s capable of covering that much area by itself. For consistency, it’s best if you use two of the same diffusers.
