New Ductwork That I’d Never See

I don’t like to spend money on things that I don’t want. For example, I don’t like spending money on an eye exam because I hate eye exams. Unfortunately, I wear contacts though, which requires my eyes to be examined every two years. I also didn’t enjoy spending money on new ductwork because I can’t see the ductwork and it felt like a waste. I knew my HVAC system was in good shape, but my HVAC company told me that my ductwork was not. In fact, it was in such bad shape that they couldn’t do anything other than recommend that I have it replaced. When I questioned the severity of the situation, the HVAC company assured me that I was wasting money every second the HVAC system powered on because the HVAC treated air wasn’t making it into my house. There were so many holes in the ductwork that had gone unnoticed for so long that it was irreparable. The ductwork was old and as far as I know, nobody had ever had the ductwork cleaned by a professional. Having ductwork clean is essential because it removes the dust and dirt that’s building up gradually. If the debri becomes too thick, it creates holes in the ductwork where the HVAC treated air can escape. When the air escapes, it’s like throwing money down the drain. In minor cases, an HVAC professional can repair the holes. Unfortunately, that was not the case for me. I’d have to spend thousands of dollars on brand new ductwork that I’d never see.
