It feels like we have been trapped inside our house for far more than a year.
But if that’s what it took to keep healthy during the pandemic then so be it.
The entire family was cooped up inside the air conditioning over the past year. We worked and schooled from home for just over a year. Now that things are opening back up, I took the opportunity to really clean the house. With all of us living and working inside the HVAC maintained comfort of home, it was tough to do any deep cleaning. Our schedules were all so different that we simply maintained when it came to cleaning and organization. That said, we are a clean bunch. Still, we have always looked to a fairly large quarterly cleaning exercise. That didn’t happens last year. Since we were going deep cleaning this year, I chose to have the air ducts cleaned. Ductwork cleaning has been something that I have been meaning to do for a long time. We’ve lived here now nearly a decade and haven’t once cleaned the HVAC air ducts. So I called the HVAC company to set that up. They have a dedicated crew that only does ductwork cleaning and ductwork sealing. That crew was awesome. The HVAC professionals showed up on time and got straight to work. I was really intrigued by the HVAC equipment that did the ductwork cleaning. And I didn’t realize just how important the ductwork sealing was either. They reseal the ductwork joints which keeps the dust and debris out of the ductwork. But the ductwork sealing also increases the efficiency of the HVAC unit significantly by reducing leaks.
