I guess I didn’t notice because it happened slowly over time, but eventually I realized one winter that my home just did not feel as warm as it used to.
- Immediately, I worried that it was an issue with my furnace system.
Any issues involving heating and cooling equipment worry me because they can be incredibly expensive. Even worse is if I had to get a new HVAC method. HVAC installation is incredibly expensive, and not something I could afford. Well, the more I thought about it, the more it didn’t make sense for it to be a HVAC issue. I just had my heating and A/C looked at a few months ago by a professional heating and cooling specialist. And while there is the off chance that the cooling worker missed something, I feel that is unlikely. So I wasn’t sure what the issue was. But since it was still most likely a HVAC issue, I decided to call the heating and cooling dealer to be on the safe side. I scheduled an appointment for later today. When the heating and A/C repairman arrived, he confirmed my theory that it was not a furnace issue. That was a relief to hear. No, it was a ductwork issue. I began to worry again, because ductwork replacement is extremely expensive as well, and I was afraid that was what the A/C worker was going to tell me that I needed to do. In that case I would probably have to buy a ductless A/C unit instead. But instead, he told me that I had some holes in the ductwork that needed to be patched, and he could do that the same day, which made me feel a lot better.
