Last year, when I hired a local Heating as well as Air Conditioning professional to service our gas heating system, he observed some complications with the duct system. The HVAC duct was at least twenty years old, as well as had never been given any attention. There were leaks at the seams as well as small holes throughout the pipes. These flaws were allowing approximately thirty percent of our heated air to escape. Because of the energy loss, the heating system was forced to run for extended cycles, experiencing excessive wear as well as tear. I was also paying a lot more in yearly energy bills, as well as yet the home always felt cold. I’d already turned up the control component by multiple degrees as well as had observed drafts in particular rooms. I assumed that the duct sealing process would be messy, time-consuming as well as super costly. I imagined the Heating as well as Air Conditioning business locating as well as sealing each individual hole. Instead, a process called Aeroseal was completed in a couple of hours as well as effectively repaired the duct system without resulting in any mangle. The Heating as well as Air Conditioning business first sealed off all of the supply as well as return registers, then blew pressurized air into the duct system. The pressurized air contained adhesive particles, as well as as the air escaped through the multiple holes, the particles stuck to the edges. The particles gradually built up to create an air slim seal, without leaving behind any unpleasant stinks or harmful residue. Once the process was complete, the Heating as well as Air Conditioning business serviced the duct system to verify the results as well as printed out a report for our records. I now idea to have the duct professionally checked every couple of years to protect against energy waste.
