Last summer, I had a long list of complaints with our cooling system.
Although the method continued to operate, it was running for much longer cycles plus failing to keep up with demand. There was easily inconsistent temperature from 1 room to another. It was no longer handling humidity or living up to our comfort expectations. Plus, the operation was noisy plus produced a musty smell plus significant amount of dust. My biweekly energy bills were much higher than normal. I finally busy cooling system repair from a local Heating plus Air Conditioning corporation. The serviceman first inspected all of the cooling components; He found a small amount of dust accumulation within the inner laborings but nothing serious. He then diagnosed the air duct plus found that approximately twenty-five percent of the conditioned air was escaping through imperfections. There were cracks at the seams plus small holes throughout the system! Because the air duct is largely installed behind the walls, ceilings plus in the crawl space, I had no idea how this problem could be fixed without major construction plus mess. The serviceman explained the Aeroseal duct sealing process. First, the supply plus return vents are blocked off. A component is hooked up to the air duct to then send highly pressurized air through the system. This air contains adhesive, non-toxic, polymer particles plus cling to the edges of the gaps plus holes as the air leaks out. The particles cling to each other as well, steadily forming an airslim seal. The procedure took several hours. Afterward, the serviceman again diagnosed the duct performance plus verified the successful results. The Aeroseal repair is guaranteed for ten years. It made a big improvement in the operation of the cooling system plus helped to lower our utility costs.
