He said he never would have thought to do something like that, and he was also surprised that the HVAC professionals didn’t tell him anything like that.
It was just last week when my brother came to me with an issue that he was having. He said that his energy bills were becoming more expensive and he figured he needed some energy saving tips. Well, I had plenty of energy saving tips for him, but I suspected there was something else going on at his place. I asked him if he was changing his air filters regularly and if he was getting HVAC system tune-ups. He said he did those things and he was still having this issue. His HVAC system was only 8 years old, but when I went to his home I was able to determine what was going on. Everything with his HVAC system seemed to be in working order except for his ductwork. The ductwork was actually kind of old but wasn’t in terrible shape. The thing is, there were numerous spots where there was HVAC treated air escaping. I told my brother that he needed to have a ductwork sealing and a ductwork cleaning would also help a lot. He said he never would have thought to do something like that, and he was also surprised that the HVAC professionals didn’t tell him anything like that. He ended up calling the HVAC company and they were happy to schedule an appointment for the ductwork sealing and ductwork cleaning. Now he has better air quality and much greater energy efficiency. He also is thankful for the energy saving tips I gave him like using LED light bulbs in his home. Now his energy bills are lower than ever before.
