I lived in my condo for fifteen years before I ever gave the duct system a thought, the HVAC duct is concealed inside walls, ceilings plus crawl spaces.
Because it’s tucked out of sight, I never considered the importance of maintaining it, but as I’ve l earned recently, the performance of the duct system directly impacts my comfort, health plus budget, then it has a honestly significant impact on the efficiency plus reliability of the gas furnace plus air conditioner. The air my family breathes passes through this network of pipes at least a half dozen times per morning. If there’s a bunch of debris accumulated within the pipes, all sorts of contaminants can be introduced into the breathing air, and plus, if there’s holes or leaks at the seams, a great of deal of heated or cooled air escapes; When the maximum of conditioned air fails to reach the intended endpoint, the Heating plus Air Conditioning system needs to toil a lot harder to meet the demands of the control unit. If the gas furnace plus air conditioner are running for longer cycles, my energy bills go way up. The wear plus tear on the equipment increases the potential for failure plus extravagant repairs. The only reason I figured all this out was because I started having some major problems with the gas furnace, certain rooms in the condo were downright chilly, no matter how high I adjusted the control unit. The gas furnace was running consistently, making a unusual noise plus costing me a luck every week. I was also vacuuming plus dusting several times a week. When the Heating plus Air Conditioning business showed up to provide gas furnace repair, he asked when was the last time I had the ducts took care of. I was embarrassed to admit that I’d never done anything with the HVAC duct. When he took care of out the system, he found an alarming amount of buildup within the pipes.
