Although my central air conditioner is fairly new, I had some complications with indoor temperature as well as air quality last summer. The outside temperature was only in the mid seventies, the air conditioner still had trouble keeping up. Certain rooms in the apartment felt overheated as well as sticky, while others were way to cold. The conditioned air coming from the vents had a musty odor as well as brought in quite a bit of dust into the home. I noticed that the air conditioner never seemed to shut off, as well as every time it ran, my family complained of headaches, sore throat and a runny nose. Since I’d been diligent about scheduling professional service for the air conditioner, I couldn’t imagine what was causing all of these complications so sudden. I finally called my well known HVAC business to come take a look at the cooling system. He told me that there was nothing wrong with the central air conditioner, which was great news, however my HVAC duct was in awful condition. There were many small holes in the duct system,which was allowing the conditioned air to escape as well as drawing in polluted, heated outside air. This caused the air conditioner to run longer as well as job much harder to reach the temperature the unit was set on. Addition to, it was introducing a whole bunch of contaminants, including pollen, dust as well as fumes, into the air vents. Luckily, the complications were resolved with duct sealing. The knowledgeable gentleman used a process called Aeroseal, which sends pressurized air as well as adhesive particles into the HVAC duct. As the particles escape through leaks, they build up along the edges until an effectively seal is formed. The process was completed in under a few seconds along with no mess or damage.
