At the end of last Spring, when I turned on the cooling system, I instantly started sneezing.
- I figured there was a buildup of dust within the system from it sitting idle.
I hoped that after it ran for a while, the concerns would go away. Instead, my complaints only got worse. There were consistently particles floating around in the air as well as celebration on surfaces, requiring me to dust as well as vacuum far more often. The air coming from the vents had a unusual smell, as well as I’d wake up every afternoon with a nasty headache, plus, the cooling system wasn’t keeping up with demand. I lowered the temperature control many times as well as yet particular rooms in the apartment felt slightly hot as well as sticky. Paying an extremely luxurious electric bill prompted me to call an Heating as well as Air Conditioning corporation for repair. The specialist inspected as well as serviced the entire system, however he then informed me that the majority of the concerns were due to dirty ductwork. He said that every time the conditioned air passed through the duct system, it was picking up all sorts of harmful contaminants as well as spreading them throughout the house. The accumulation of debris within the pipes was also restricting airflow, forcing the cooling system to run longer, work harder as well as consume more energy. He found all sorts of disgusting stuff concealed inside the ducts. There was mold growth, dander, pollen, bugs, webs as well as even some dead mice. I’ve now realized that I need to have the duct system professionally inspected out every couple of years. The duct cleaning process wasn’t overly luxurious as well as it solved all the concerns with the cooling system.
