I hate ductwork. When I first moved into our home, it had the ugliest ductwork… The ductwork was not sealed in the walls and ceiling–it was exposed. So anybody that walked into our lake house could see the large, metal, ten inch piping extending from room to room, Then ust would get on top of the ductworks and became next to impossible to clean. The look of the sizable ductwork was terrible as well; I ended up paying a ton of money to have the exposed ductwork setup in the walls and ceiling. I had a heating and AC contractor come in our lake house to do the job. It was a ton of work, time and money in order to make that happen. After the heating and AC provider finished, I realized that I still hated our electric furnace and AC system. Since the ductwork was in the walls, I had no clue if it was in fine shape. I had to call for duct sealing and ductwork cleaning several times a year. Sometimes the electric heater and AC contractor would cause a crack in the ductwork while he was cleaning them. I finally had to spend money for the electric heater and central AC business to come into our beach apartment and remove the Heating and AC ducts completely. They tore open our walls and ceiling again to do the job. I then had to spend money to repair the drywall, and get a modern duct free heating and AC device. I have a ductless mini split in our lake house and I really like it. But, it was a ton of money for me to get to this point. It was all due to the horrible ductwork.
