Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handywoman122 Finally got my cool room!
In a recent room addition to our home, we noticed the new room was not cooling as well as the others. They had added a 6 inch flex duct to the new room, while all the others in the house were 8 inch. My husband and I went to Home Depot to see what our options were to improve air flow to the new room. A wonderful employee, Danny, soon greeted us and recommended we change the flex duct to an 8 inch. He helped us select the products that we would need including the 8 inch flex duct. I installed the new duct and could immediately feel the difference in air flow. I now have a "cool" new room!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BrianMD Excellent product
I was a bit wary of flexible ducting as some of the existing, older, flex duct in my attic was torn and crushed. I had intended to replace this with round metal duct and then insulate the outside of it.
However, I spoke to a friend in the HVAC business and he said that flex duct is now the standard for short (less than 12 ft.) runs. He said that it is actually fine for longer runs provided it is run straight and pulled taut to remove slack.
Armed with this advice I purchase some of the 8 in. duct. The installation was a snap - took me about 15 minutes. It would have taken me at least 2 or 3 hours to run and insulate metal duct.
Provided you use zip ties and plenty of foil tape at your connections, this product is very sturdy and effective. I intend to replace my remaining round ductwork with this product prior to having my attic insulated with blown-in insulation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big6 Flexible and easy to use
I used various sizes of Master Flow Flexible ductwork when installing my furnace. The 8 inch ductwork is as tough and flexible as the 12 and 7 inch sizes. When installing this ductwork on Master FlowStarting collars, installation is fast and very secure. The ductwork is very flexible and able to snake through tight spaces. I definitely recommend this ductwork.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Remodler Great product just needs to be offered in shorter lengths
I am happy with the product but disappointed I couldn't buy it in shorter lengths. I recently did a remodel and needed to move an HVAC line. This required an 8ft length to be added for a reroute. Unfortunately I could only by 25 foot sections at 60.00 a pop. I understand a HVAC company or wholsaler not offering shorter lengths but Home Depot is said to cater to the home owner, which I am. I wasn't to thrilled spending so much for a section I have seen a hundred times in a dumpster after a new build. Homedepot please consider selling more reasonable quantities. Product great but way more than I needed. I recommend you do the same as you do for wire spools, charging a premium for smaller rolls. You can still make your money and I can still save mine.

I saved over $60 buying this online and having it delivered than if I had bought it locally in our small town. It is as described and worked as expected, who could ask for anything more? It was fun opening it up as it was packed tightly in a box like a slinky and came out like a Jack in the box.

This is the best 8" duct I could find out there. It has the best R value and the material it's made of is strong. I strongly recommend this product.

Works great and doesn't leak any heat from it. Easy to run and cut. Can't complain what so ever.
