Have you ever had a room in your house that is just stuffy, nasty and warm? That’s what my problem was.
It did not matter what time of year it was, it pretty much was the same all year round! It actually was a bit worse in the Summer with the humidity and heat.
Finally, I couldn’t take it anymore and was about to invest in a zoned HVAC system, which would have costed me thousands of dollars between the purchase of the unit, and the installation. Then, a friend of mine said to me that it sounded like there could be a cheaper solution, which was to get my ductwork sealed! My friend knew a thing or 2 about heating and air conditioning units and how they work. He was an HVAC specialist at one time. Today, he is happily retired. I took his advise and called my local heating and air conditioning company, so that way they would send out a certified heating and cooling specialist to investigate. When the HVAC specialist came out, it turned out my friend was right! I was told that getting duct sealing done would be the answer to the issue, and that the room would no longer be stuffy and overly hot after this duct sealing was done. I had the duct sealing done, and what do you know? The room for the first time ever was the perfect temperature! No more cranking the thermostat in the Summer to try to cool it off! And even in the Winter, it was cool in there moving forward.
