Last winter, I had some complaints with our furnace, various rooms in the condo felt slightly chilly as well as changing the thermostat had little effect.
There were significantly more contaminants circulating in the air as well as accumulating on surfaces, forcing myself and others to vacuum as well as dust far more frequently.
I was convinced that the heating plan was making more noise as well as supplying less moderate air. I observed that it was starting up more often as well as running for much longer cycles. An increase in our weekly energy bill convinced myself and others to schedule service from a local Heating as well as A/C company. The serviceman checked the furnace as well as found nothing beyond a slight buildup of dust on the mechanisms. He then maintained the air duct as well as discovered the source of the concerns. Leaks at the seams as well as an abundance of tiny holes throughout the duct plan were allowing approximately twenty percent of the conditioned air to escape, and since the pipes are installed inside walls, ceilings as well as the crawlspace, I had no plan how repairs would be possible separate from a major mess. The serviceman then explained a relatively new process called Aeroseal that targets flaws in the ducts from the inside. After blocking off the supply as well as return registers, the serviceman hooked up a machine that sent highly pressurized air into the system. The air contained adhesive, non-toxic polymer particles. As the air leaked out of imperfections, the particles clung to the edges, steadily built up as well as formed an airnarrow seal. The whole process was completed in a couple of hours as well as created no disfigure, fumes or mess. The serviceman verified the results by way of a laptop program as well as gave a certificate for a ten-year guarantee.
