The HVAC professional told me that he was able to patch the holes himself, however I needed to have our air duct cleaned.
For many months, the efficiency of our air conditioner was increasing; Little by little, I watched our weekly utility bill rise higher as well as higher as well as I didn’t think what was causing it. I serviced our HVAC plan as well as I was diligent about replacing the air filter every three months. I hadn’t experienced any troubles with our air conditioner in the past, so it felt peculiar to me that the efficiency would decrease so much. I tried a lot of different things to save money, but nothing worked. No matter what I set the temperature to or how little I cooled our home, the efficiency was low. I finally decided to call an HVAC professional because I thought something was wrong with our A/C system. The HVAC professional told me that there wasn’t anything wrong with the A/C system, which was a huge relief. However, there was a problem with our air duct. There were many holes in the air duct, which was causing our cool air to escape before it ever reached our living spaces! This is why our attempts to decrease the utility bill were unsuccessful. The HVAC professional told me that he was able to patch the holes himself, however I needed to have our air duct cleaned. There was so much dust as well as debri building up in the air duct that the friction was forming holes. Unluckyly, he was unable to scrub the air duct that day, however I could schedule an appointment for another day. I’m ecstatic I discovered the solution.
