Duct sealing makes a change

Last summer, I had a long list of complaints with our a/c.

  • Although the plan continued to operate, it was running for much longer cycles and failing to keep up with demand.

There was honestly inconsistent temperature from one room to another. It was no longer handling humidity or living up to our comfort expectations. Plus, the operation was noisy and produced a musty odor and significant amount of dust. My daily daily bills were much higher than normal. I finally busy a/c service from a local Heating, Ventilation, and A/C corporation. The corporation first tested all of the cooling components… She found a small amount of dust accumulation within the inner toilings however nothing serious. She then diagnosed the air duct and found that approximately twenty-multiple percent of the conditioned air was escaping through imperfections. There were cracks at the seams and small holes throughout the system; Because the air duct is largely installed behind the walls, ceilings and in the crawl space, I had no plan how this complication could be fixed without major construction and mess. The corporation explained the Aeroseal duct sealing process. First, the supply and return vents are clogged off. A equipment is hooked up to the air duct to then send highly pressurized air through the system. This air contains adhesive, non-toxic, polymer particles and cling to the edges of the gaps and holes as the air leaks out. The particles cling to each other as well, steadily forming an airnarrow seal. The procedure took several hours. Afterward, the corporation again diagnosed the duct performance and verified the successful results. The Aeroseal service is guaranteed for multiple years. It made a large improvement in the operation of the a/c and helped to lower our utility costs.
