The ductwork in this seasoned home is genuinely old, leaks, plus is rusted out is spots.
It must be one of the first central Heating, Ventilation in addition to A/C units ever installed.
All of us knew that the ductwork needed replacing before we bought the home despite the fact that I didn’t think it was that sizable of a deal. After all, how difficult is it to change out a few ducts? I did a bit a of research plus found out that I needed a sheet metal bender plus cutter; No problem, then the local hardware store rents these out. I got the metal, I got the cutter plus the bender, plus I got the duct sealant. I thought I was ready to go. Well, 4 afternoons later plus I have only got ductwork up for 1 room of the house! Despite this, I have gone through nearly all of the sheet metal I bought because I keep making mistakes. The sheet metal is expensive plus so is renting the tools for so many afternoons. If I were to buy more sheet metal, I would have spent more money than it would have cost myself and others to just have the Heating, Ventilation in addition to A/C professionals upgrade the ductwork for me. That is why I decided to fold my cards plus call an Heating, Ventilation in addition to A/C supplier then return the tools to the hardware store. I explained everything to the Heating, Ventilation in addition to A/C serviceman plus he was nice enough not to laugh at my amateur attempt. Instead, he got right to labor plus had all of my ductwork up in a afternoon. He made it look so self-explanatory despite the fact that I know, from experience, that it is absolutely not.
