The contractor brought in a machine that resembles a massive vacuum cleaner
My lake house is equipped with a forced air gas furnace plus a/c. The heating plus cooling units rely on a ventilation system that is concealed inside the walls, ceilings plus crawlspace. The ductwork carries the heated/cooled air to vents located in each room of the house. Any complications with the ducts, such as leaks, corrosion, crushed pipes or a buildup of contaminants, directly impacts the performance of the gas furnace plus cooling system. The components end up running for longer cycles, using up more energy plus experiencing more wear plus tear, and we’re subjected to complications with indoor air conditions, inferior comfort plus higher biweekly utility bills. I’ve realized that it’s especially important to keep the duct system in peak working order. I make a point to schedule a duct inspection every year! Over the last 10 years, I’ve only been faced with a couple of problems. The 1 time, there were some leaks at the seams plus tiny holes in the pipes that needed to be sealed. Because of these imperfections, approximately fifteen percent of our heated plus cooled air was being allowed to escape, but just a couple of years ago, the Heating plus Air Conditioning contractor requested duct cleaning. He said there was a significant accumulation of dust, webs, mold plus other debris within the system. The contractor brought in a machine that resembles a massive vacuum cleaner. There was a lengthy hose with a brush fastenment that was inserted into the ducts. The brush discottaged stubborn contaminants which were then sucked up into the hose. Along with usual duct inspection, I am conscientious about having the gas furnace plus cooling system professionally took care of each year.
