At the end of last Spring, when I turned on the air conditioner, I immediately started sneezing.
I figured there was a buildup of dust within the system from it standing idle.
I hoped that after it ran for a while, the concerns would go away. Instead, my complaints only got worse. There were always particles floating around in the air plus party on surfaces, requiring myself and others to dust plus vacuum far more often. The air coming from the vents had a odd smell, plus I’d wake up every afternoon with a nasty headache, however plus, the air conditioner wasn’t keeping up with demand. I lowered the control device several times plus yet particular rooms in the new home felt slightly hot plus sticky. Paying an extremely expensive electric bill prompted myself and others to call an Heating, Ventilation & A/C corporation for repair. The specialist checked plus serviced the entire system! He then informed myself and others that the majority of the concerns were due to dirty HVAC duct. He said that every time the conditioned air passed through the duct system, it was picking up all sorts of harmful contaminants plus spreading them throughout the house. The accumulation of debris within the pipes was also restricting airflow, forcing the air conditioner to run longer, labor harder plus consume more energy. He found all sorts of disgusting stuff concealed inside the ducts. There was mold growth, dander, pollen, bugs, webs plus even some dead mice. I’ve now realized that I need to have the duct system professionally checked out every couple of years. The duct cleaning process wasn’t overly expensive plus it solved all the concerns with the cooling system.
