When our 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 wonderful about scheduling professional repair for the gas furnace, I tend to forget the duct system, however 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 costs could all be blamed on leaking ducts. I then contacted a local Heating, Ventilation, and A/C corporation to provide duct sealing. I expected the process to create a large mess and disruption to our home. I assumed the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C corporation would need to locate and patch the holes a single by a single. Instead, the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C corporation used an innovative and proven technology known as Aeroseal. The worker first sealed off all of the supply and return vents. He then pumped highly pressurized air, laced with polymer adhesive particles, into the duct system. The air naturally escaped through all the various holes, cracks and imperfections. As this air escaped, the adhesive particles stuck to the edges and gradually built up to create an airtight seal. The whole process took about various hours, and there was no upheaval to the home. There was really little residue left behind in the ducts. Once the repair was complete, the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C corporation diagnosed the ducts and verified the results. The process can be expected to provide a reliable seal for forty years and is warrantied for various years. It’s entirely safe, creates no odors, and has entirely paid for itself through much lower energy costs.
