Last summer, I had a lot of complaints about the operation of the a/c.
It seemed to run just about non stop plus yet the condo felt slightly hot! Certain rooms were especially tepid plus sticky. The air coming from the vents had a musty stink, plus there was an excessive amount of dust plus allergens circulating in the air. My yearly energy costs were much higher than normal. When I observed that my youngsters started to sneeze every time the a/c ran plus realized that I was consistently suffering from headaches, I busy professional repair. The supplier took care of the inner laborings of the A/C plus found no problems. I am conscientious about replacing air filters plus arranging seasonal repair for the cooling unit. The supplier then worked on the ductwork plus discovered that approximately twenty percent of the cooled air was leaking out through holes plus gaps at the seams. He explained that these flaws in the ductwork were also drawing in contaminants plus spreading them throughout the house. Because the maximum amount of cooled air wasn’t reaching the intended endpoint, the a/c was forced to labor harder plus longer. The supplier advised duct sealing. I was a bit sad that the service would require splitting holes in walls plus ceilings to access the concealed pipes. However, the supplier used a process called Aeroseal that fixes ductwork imperfections from the inside. It involves sending highly pressurized air laced with polymer particles into the duct system. These particles are adhesive plus stick to edges of the various holes as the air escapes. They steadily build up to form a slim seal.
