DIY HVAC duct maintenance does not go as planned

Instead, he got right to work as well as had all of my HVAC duct up in a afternoon

The HVAC duct in this outdated lake house is absolutely old, leaks, as well as is rusted out is spots. It must be 1 of the first central Heating, Ventilation & A/C units ever installed. All of us knew that the HVAC duct needed replacing before all of us purchased the lake house but I didn’t guess it was that immense of a deal. After all, how strenuous is it to change out a few ducts? I did a bit a of research as well as found out that I needed a sheet metal bender as well as cutter, then no problem… The local hardware store rents these out. I got the metal, I got the cutter as well as the bender, as well as I got the duct sealant. I thought I was ready to go. Well, 4 mornings later as well as I have only got HVAC duct up for 1 room of the house, however despite this, I have gone through nearly all of the sheet metal I purchased because I keep making mistakes. The sheet metal is high-priced as well as so is renting the tools for so multiple mornings. If I were to buy more sheet metal, I would have spent more currency than it would have cost myself and others to just have the Heating, Ventilation & A/C professionals replace the HVAC duct for me. That is why I decided to fold my cards as well as call an Heating, Ventilation & A/C company then return the tools to the hardware store. I explained everything to the Heating, Ventilation & A/C serviceman as well as he was nice enough not to laugh at my amateur attempt. Instead, he got right to work as well as had all of my HVAC duct up in a afternoon. He made it look so self-explanatory but I know, from experience, that it is absolutely not.
