Woes with AC are caused by leaky ductwork

Last summer, I had a lot of complaints about the operation of the air conditioner.

It seemed to run just about non stop & yet the home felt slightly boiling, however certain rooms were especially hot & sticky.

The air coming from the vents had a musty stink, & there was an excessive amount of dust & allergens circulating in the air. My yearly energy bills were much higher than normal. When I observed that my kids started to sneeze every time the air conditioner ran & realized that I was constantly suffering from headaches, I busy professional repair. The worker evaluated the inner workings of the AC & found no complications. I am conscientious about replacing air filters & arranging seasonal repair for the cooling unit. The worker then diagnosed the ductwork & discovered that approximately twenty percent of the cooled air was leaking out through holes & gaps at the seams. He explained that these flaws in the ductwork were also drawing in contaminants & spreading them throughout the house, but because the maximum amount of cooled air wasn’t reaching the intended endpoint, the air conditioner was forced to toil harder & longer. The worker recommended duct sealing. I was a bit worried that the repair would require chopping holes in walls & ceilings to access the concealed pipes. However, the worker 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 & stick to edges of the numerous holes as the air escapes. They steadily build up to form a tight seal.
