Problems with AC caused by disgusting air duct

Last summer, I was legitimately unhappy with the performance of my a/c, the cooling system is relatively new, i had it installed just three years ago as well as spent extra on a high-efficiency model.

I’ve been diligent about changing air filters as well as having the cooling component professionally serviced every Springtime.

Despite all that, my utility bills were suddenly much higher than ever before. The a/c was running typically yet struggling to handle expectations. The cabin felt slightly boiling as well as muggy as well as certain rooms were much worse than others. The temperature from one room to another varied significantly. I also noticed the cooling operation making some odd sounds, creating unpleasant odors as well as spreading dust into the breathing air, then when I realized that I was suffering from more frequent headaches, I blamed the a/c as well as stressed repair. The Heating as well as Air Conditioning contractor evaluated the system as well as found no issues. When he tested the air duct, he discovered diminished capacity. The airflow was restricted by a buildup of contaminants, and a thorough duct cleaning solved all of the issues with the a/c. The process only took a couple of hours as well as caused no mess or disruption. The results were immediate. Along with superior comfort as well as lower sound levels, the system did a far better job at dehumidifying, but my cabin was suddenly much cleaner as well as more enjoyable… Because the AC doesn’t need to work as difficult or run as often, it should be more reliable as well as last longer. I now understand the importance of the air duct as well as plan to have the system evaluated every couple of years.
