The whole process was completed within a couple of hours, but although the repair was rather expensive, the improvement was honestly worth it; My house is more comfortable, smells better and stays cleaner.
When I observed an increase in the amount of dust blowing from the supply vents, I blamed the furnace, and i called a local Heating and A/C company and scheduled repair for the furnace; The professional ended up testing the performance of the duct system, he found that the source of the dust was a considerable buildup inside the air duct. He genuinely found pollen, bugs, construction debris, decomposing rodents and mold growth inside the ducts. This accumulation was restricting airflow through the pipes, causing the furnaces to run for longer cycles. The added wear and tear could unquestionably lead to expensive repairs or even shortened repair life. The longer heating cycles were using up a good deal of energy and costing more in energy costs, but plus, every time the furnace started up, there was a risk of those contaminants becoming airborne, getting spread throughout the house and creating a health risk. The professional proposed professional duct cleaning. I wasn’t sure how he was going to access the pipes. They are mostly concealed inside of the walls and ceilings. He brought in a machine that looked similar to an industrial sized vacuum cleaner. The machine included an severely long hose with a brush connectment. The brush is inserted into the duct plan and used to dislodge stubborn pollutants that then get sucked up into the hose. The whole process was completed within a couple of hours, but although the repair was rather expensive, the improvement was honestly worth it; My house is more comfortable, smells better and stays cleaner. I don’t need to vacuum or dust as often. My teenagers and hubby have fewer complaints with sneezing, coughing and headaches. I’ve also seen a considerable reduction in the cost of our heating bills.
