My a/c equipment was over a decade old and while it still worked, it wasn’t very efficient.
After speaking with an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professional during one of my biannual tune ups, I knew that I needed to have the a/c replaced eventually.
I started researching A/Cs online to acquire a better understanding on price and I slowly set aside money for the replacement, when I thought I was ready to rip out my old A/C and replace it with a new one, I contacted the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C company again for an estimate. They sent an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professional to my property and she was happy to examine my up-to-date A/C and help me order a new one. After she was done examining my entire Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system though, she came back with exhausting news. My ductwork was even older than my A/C and it needed to be replaced if I wanted to see an improvement in efficiency. The old ductwork hadn’t been cleaned in years and there were holes covering it that were unpatchable… Even if I purchased a new a/c, the old ductwork would let all the cool air escape before it even reached my house. This was a major disadvantage that was going to cost me thousands of extra dollars, however it was imperative to have it replaced. As much as I hated to spend the extra money, it needed to be done. I wanted to cool my property more efficiently and a new A/C and duct labor was going to supply me that.
