My a/c unit was over a decade old as well as while it still worked, it wasn’t honestly efficient.
After speaking with an Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional during one of my biannual tune ups, I knew that I needed to have the air conditioner replaced eventually.
I started researching air conditioners online to acquire a better understanding on price as well as I slowly set aside cash for the replacement. When I thought I was ready to rip out my old air conditioner as well as replace it with a modern one, I contacted the Heating, Ventilation & A/C contractor again for an estimate. They sent an Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional to my apartment as well as he was glad to examine my modern air conditioner as well as help me order a modern one. After he was done examining my entire Heating, Ventilation & A/C system though, he came back with bad news, and my ductwork was even older than my air conditioner as well as it needed to be replaced if I wanted to see an improvement in efficiency. The old ductwork hadn’t been cleaned in years as well as there were holes covering it that were unpatchable, even if I obtained a modern air conditioner, the old ductwork would let all the cool air escape before it even reached my house. This was a major downside that was going to cost me thousands of extra dollars, but it was imperative to have it replaced. As much as I hated to spend the extra cash, it needed to be done. I wanted to cool my home more efficiently as well as a modern air conditioner as well as duct labor was going to give me that.
