Gaping Holes in Ductwork

I had been feeling like something was wrong with my A/C system for some time. It started when the rooms in my loft were all cooling to unusual degrees. My primary study room was getting cool without problems, however my guest study room was hardly getting any airflow through the air vents. I tried increasing the settings on my temperature control, however nothing ever changed this. I hesitated to call the Heating & A/C contractor because I didn’t guess if I was overthinking things. As it turns out, I should have called the Heating & A/C contractor much sooner though because something was terribly wrong. When an Heating & A/C professional examined my Heating & A/C system, he made a shocking discovery. My air duct was in bad shape. There were gaping holes in several spots & all the Heating & A/C treated air was escaping before it could get through the air vents. Some areas of the air duct were worse than others, which was why there was a temperature difference in the rooms. Normally, Heating & A/C professionals would patch small holes, however these were too sizable & too frequent. The Heating & A/C professional told myself and others that the only solution was to update the air duct completely. Until then, I was basically throwing away money every time I ran my air. It was an high-priced maintenance that I didn’t system for however it was necessary. I’m blissful I found the holes in the air duct when I did before things got too much worse, although I do wish I would have known sooner. If I knew when they were smaller, I could have prevented it from getting out of hand.
