Leaky ducts are the cause of AC repair

From now on, I will make sure to have the duct system diagnosed every couple of years

Living in Jacksonville, FL, the air conditioning runs for most of the year. Temperatures in the triple digits and an excess of humidity make the cooling system a necessity. The unit carries a heavy workload and accounts for the majority of the electric bill. I take undoubtedly great care of my central a/c. I make sure to replace the filter every six weeks and schedule professional service from a licensed professional every Spring. The worker problemshoots and cleans all of the components. They replace any broken parts, tighten wires, test the refrigerant and calibrate the temperature control. This repair fulfills the manufacturer’s warranty and ensures the efficiency and maximum lifespan of the unit, however last summer, I was surprised when the air conditioning struggled to keep the home cool. There was a significant amount of dust circulating and an unpleasant musty smell, and certain rooms felt hot and sticky. I noticed that the air conditioning was running just about 24/7 and my energy costs were sky-high. When I busy air conditioning repair, the worker checked the component and then diagnosed the air duct. He found small holes and leaks at the seams of the duct system and estimated that approximately thirty percent of the conditioner air was escaping. Fortunately, the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C contractor includes duct sealing capabilities. They completed the repair quickly and effectively, and once the air duct was operating at max capacity, the air conditioning was restored to peak performance. From now on, I will make sure to have the duct system diagnosed every couple of years. I hope to minimize stress on the air conditioning to extend its repair life and protect its value.
