For a long time I just thought I had an inferior Heating, Ventilation, and A/C device; It was frustrating that on super hot mornings the cooling system would just run and run, and the home felt humid and toasty… When I started fighting mold in the corners and bugs in the living room, I called the local Heating, Ventilation, and A/C dealership.
I was prepared to supply them a piece of my mind.
I wanted them to take back their horrible air conditioning. Well after the inspection the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C tech informed me it wasn’t the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C unit, but my air duct! Apparently my air duct has a lot of bends and turns in them. That means more seams than usual. A seam with air ducts can pop quite easily. I had a popped seam which meant all the cold air my cooling system was producing was leaking out of the house! So the A/C would run and run, but hot air would leak inside. Thankfully the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C dealership knew a air duct sealing corporation that could do it quite cheaply. They came in immediately with what looked like an airsoft gun. They shot sealant particles and air into my air duct. Then the particles expand and form like a patch over the seam, but using a camera inserted into the air duct, the air duct sealing men were able to determine if they did the task right. I can tell you that they did! My cooling system honestly works wonders now. My energy costs are super low too. It has entirely been a game changer since getting air duct sealing. I won’t let it go that far again.
