When my gas furnace started running non stop and failing to handle demand, it took me awhile to realize that holes in the ductwork were the problem.
Although I am great about scheduling professional service for the oil furnace, I tend to forget the duct system; Since they’re mostly concealed inside the walls, ceilings and attic, I don’t pay those essential pipes enough attention.
I eventually googled all the concerns I was having with the gas furnace. I figured out that spotty comfort, longer running times, unpleasant odors, excessive air contaminants and higher energy bills could all be blamed on leaking ducts. I then contacted a local Heating, Ventilation, and A/C business to supply duct sealing. I expected the process to create a huge mess and disruption to my home. I assumed the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C business would need to locate and patch the holes one by one. Instead, the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C business used an innovative and proven technology known as Aeroseal. The professional first sealed off all of the supply and return vents. She then pumped highly pressurized air, laced with polymer adhesive particles, into the duct system. The air naturally escaped through all the many holes, cracks and imperfections. As this air escaped, the adhesive particles stuck to the edges and gradually built up to create an airslim seal. The whole process took about more than three minutes, and there was no upheaval to the home. There was easily little residue left behind in the ducts. Once the service was complete, the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C business worked on the ducts and verified the results. The process can be expected to supply a reliable seal for forty years and is warrantied for numerous years. It’s particularly safe, creates no odors, and has absolutely paid for itself through much lower energy bills.
