Last winter, every time the furnace started up, our family members started sneezing or coughing.
My husband complained of headaches, as well as our teenagers were consistently jammed as well as suffering sore throats.
I was having difficulty sleeping, as well as our eyep felt itchy. I observed that the heating plan seemed to run for longer periods of time as well as yet the condo was a bit chilly. Turning up the thermostat didn’t accomplish much. I finally googled our more than 2 complaints with the furnace as well as got suspicious dirty air duct was to blame. When I looked up the Heating as well as A/C companys in our local area, I discovered that particularly few offer professional duct cleaning. I then read reviews to make sure I chose a reputable company. I found a single that has been in business for over twenty years, maintains an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau as well as stands behind their labor with 100% delight guarantee. The serviceman came to the house, maintained the air duct as well as confirmed a problematic buildup of debris. He found dust, dander, pollen, lint, dead rodents, bugs, webs as well as mold growth. Every time the furnace operated as well as sent heated air through the duct system, those harmful toxins were getting circulated throughout the condo as well as breathed in by our family. Plus, the accumulation was restricting airflow as well as forcing the furnace to labor harder as well as use more energy. I’m lucky the wear as well as tear on components didn’t cause a malfunction as well as necessitate an luxurious repair. I’ve now l gained that it’s a good plan to have the duct plan checked every few years. Along with dirty ducts, there is the potential for up to 30% of air to escape from leaks at the connections as well as holes.
