Ductwork is often described as straws. It transports air from one place to another (for example it could be connecting your AC blower to the interior of your home). Ductwork is typically made of pre-insulated fiberglass duct boards or malleable plastic. However, it can also be constructed from ductwork constructed from steel sheet (a pipe made from sheet metal) that is then wrapped in insulation after it is installed.
