GREENVILLE, S.C. - Home Solutions Depot Inc. announced it has been named the exclusive distributor of FlexGuardâ„¢ Environmental Duct for upstate South Carolina, western North Carolina, and northeast Georgia.

FlexGuard flexible ductwork is unique to the HVAC market in that it contains antimicrobial properties that resist and inhibit the growth of mold and mildew in ductwork, reducing their transmission to improve IAQ, states the company. This feature is beneficial to people with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions. It further resists rust corrosion, is flame-resistant, and carries a lifetime guarantee. FlexGuard will not kink or crimp in tight installations, and can be bent without damaging the product, the company states. FlexGuard earned Greenguard's environmental institute certification for meeting stringent indoor air quality standards.

FlexGuard can be used in low- to high-pressure cooling and heating systems, and can be used in either supply or return sections for both new and refit jobs, the company says.
