Ever since moving into our new house, we have been on a mission to fix it up. The old home is over a hundred years old, and has been largely neglected. The plumbing, electric, heating in addition to cooling systems were absolutely old and in awful condition. It took us many years in addition to a great deal of money to replace all of the plumbing, wiring, oil furnace and air conditioner. Despite all of these updates, the new home still felt like it had hot and cold spots, unpleasant odors, in addition to the daily energy costs were getting high. I realized that I had neglected to make any improvements to the air duct system. I hired an HVAC corporation to inspect the ductwork in addition to give recommendations. Just as I had suspected, the duct system was allowing the heated or cooled air to escape through many holes in addition to leaks at the seams. This was also allowing unconditioned, polluted air into the house, which was forcing the HVAC system to run much harder. Plus, the ductwork was plugged with a buildup of contaminants, such as dust, mold, mildew, pollen, in addition to bacteria, which was degrading air quality. I was glad that the duct system was able to be salvaged. It simply required professional sealing in addition to cleaning to get back the optimum airflow. Once these services were finished, I noticed a immense difference in the cleanliness in addition to comfort of our home.
