At some point you can stop doing that, you're just adding the numbers of CFM, but now we're looking at the total CFM for that larger branch, and going through the same sort of estimate looking back, checking the pressure, seeing if the CFM works, and then the scale of the duct that the ductulator tells us, whether it's an online one or one of the cardboard ones. Then we're going to do it again as we go back and have a larger trunk, or a larger branch, back towards the air handling unit. We're just going to keep checking as we add up each of these different areas, and every branch that has multiple zones on it, you would have to add up all of the zones and sort of making sure that you have the ability to get enough air through that system that it can actually get all the way out into the space.
