Tree roots are getting into ductwork

The bathroom is the coldest room in the house when the air conditioner is on.

This is exceptionally uncomfortable when you’re getting out of the shower and have to step into a freezing cold bathroom.

For the rest of the house, the temperature varies. Some rooms are warmer than others. We’ve been mostly ignoring this issue but recently, the air conditioner has stopped preaching our bedroom entirely. That’s when we decided to call up an HVAC supplier. HVAC supplier looked over our heating and cooling system Then they went under the house and checked over our ductwork. That’s what they found the root of our problem, no pun intended. Apparently tree roots were getting into our ductwork. These roots were blocking the airflow to parts of the house. The bathroom is the first stop for the ductwork so all of the cold air is getting diverted into the bathroom instead of being spread out throughout the house. Our bedroom was completely blocked off with roots. The duct work had to be disassembled and cleaned out. Once they did this, our whole house was cooling much more evenly again. The bathroom isn’t freezing cold anymore and our bedroom is getting air conditioning. Now we’re thinking about having the tree removed entirely. I don’t want it attacking our ductwork again. It might be damaging our plumbing as well. The HVAC supplier said they thought it might be but then they’re not plumbers. That’s one more expense if it is. I guess it’s better just to have the tree removed now before it destroys the whole house.
