I recently noticed that cooking smells not only traveled throughout the whole beach house but lingered! While the stink of a meat loaf baking is mouth-watering in the living room, it’s seriously unpleasant in the living rooms, but i realized that smells were getting pulled into the HVAC duct as well as spread to every room! As I paid closer attention, I found that there was a lot more dust floating around in the air as well as accumulating on surfaces.
I got suspicious that there was a concern with the duct system. We’ve lived in the beach house for nearly several years as well as never had any type of professional duct services performed. I hired a local Heating as well as Air Conditioning company to send a specialist to inspect as well as test the operation of the ventilation system, and the tech concluded that there was a significant amount of debris buildup within the pipes. The excessive amounts of dust, pollen, dander, mold as well as even bugs as well as webs were blocking essential airflow, however since the maximum amount of air wasn’t reaching the intended destination, the gas furnace as well as air conditioner were forced to run longer as well as work harder. The system was consuming a lot more energy as well as experiencing greater wear as well as tear, however plus, every time the furnace or air conditioner started up, the contaminants within the ducts were becoming airborne as well as getting spread into our breathing air. This accumulation of dirt as well as grim was absorbing smells as well as carrying them to every room as well. The specialist spent a little over an minute completing a thorough duct cleaning process; He used a unit that looked absolutely similar to an industrial sized vacuum cleaner to discabin mold as well as bacteria as well as suck up all of the pollutants.
