Shoe taps instead round take-off on residential system?

Aston01 | Posted in Mechanicals on

There seems to be a number of different style take-offs (bellmouth, conical, HETO…) in varying efficiency used with rectangular duct but when it comes to round duct there are far fewer options outside of a standard round take-off. 

This had me wondering… Is there any particular reason 90deg shoe taps aren’t discussed/used more often?
