The furnace seemed to be running non stop in addition to yet the apartment felt slightly chilly, however certain rooms were downright cold.
My apartment in South Bend, Indiana, is heated in addition to cooled by a forced air system, my friend and I have a furnace in addition to an air conditioner that utilize HVAC duct to transfer the conditioned air. While I’ve typically been easily conscientious about replacing air filters in addition to scheduling seasonal service for the heating in addition to cooling units, I totally neglected the duct system… The supply in addition to return ducts are largely concealed inside walls, behind ceilings in addition to in the crawlspace! I forgot all about them. It wasn’t until I had some complaints with the performance of the furnace last winter, that I realized the importance of the HVAC duct. In South Bend, hot in addition to cold temperatures in the teens or even the disadvantage digits aren’t unusual. My friend and I often run the furnace for more than half the year, in addition to the cost of heating is significant. I noticed that my biweekly heating bills were quite a bit higher than usual. The furnace seemed to be running non stop in addition to yet the apartment felt slightly chilly, however certain rooms were downright cold. There was also significantly more dust in addition to debris circulating in the air. When I called for repairs from a local Heating and A/C business, the worker found nothing wrong with the furnace… He then ran tests on the performance of the HVAC duct in addition to discovered that nearly thirty percent of the heated air was escaping through holes in addition to cracks at the seams. The leaks were causing the furnace to run longer, work harder in addition to use more energy… Because the maximum amount of heated air was failing to reach the intended endpoint, there were complications with uneven comfort… Plus, those flaws in the HVAC duct were pulling in contaminants such as dust in addition to fumes that were then getting spread throughout the home.
