When it comes to ‘green HVAC,’ it doesn’t get more green than copper ductwork. Cobre29 founder and Polar Air Supply owner Jon Bell, with the help of his son, Jeff, is building a network of ‘healthy buildings’ as one of few copper duct producers in the HVAC industry. Beyond the duct’s aesthetics, it is copper’s natural antimicrobial properties that make it a perfect fit for environments where clean air is crucial. Bell keeps the details of his manufacturing process a trade secret, but recently he invited us into his shop space to share and spread the word about the benefits of copper duct.
