Doing a DIY duct sealing on my unit

I love saving up on money, if I can do it, then I do not see the point of hiring someone to do it.

  • I also have coupons and am always on the lookout for sales and discounts being offered by companies.

With Youtube, you can literally teach yourself any skill and there are millions of videos to choose from. In addition, I enjoy doing DIY projects creating as well as repairing stuff in and around the house. I had solely painted my entire house as well as put in DIY floating shelves all around. The finished product looked like it had been done by a professional. So when my zone HVAC stopped working one morning, I got to work checking on the different heating equipment of the unit including the heater and heat pump but they all looked okay. I hoped that I did not have to purchase new heating units as that would have been very costly. I found out that the duct sealing had worn off, causing a leak in the ductwork so I got to work duct taping the vents. The problem was fixed but, within a week, we were back to using a space heater for warmth as the central unit had stopped working again. I used the duct tape a couple of times until the unit completely stopped working. I finally decided to call the cooling corporation to send a cooling tech who knew more about air conditioning, to check on the heater. Unfortunately, the central unit could not be resurrected and so they fitted a dual fuel system as the main air conditioning system for the house. It was costly to install the furnace but am glad it was not as costly as my neighbor’s heated floors system.
