My partner & I have an older house, however every one of us have never experienced problems with hot & frigid spots in the home until just recently.
- The back dining room where our partner has her office is usually particularly hot & cozy.
Not many of afternoons ago, it abruptly became a frigid area. It seems care about particularly little heat is coming to the room. There are no other problems around the home with frigid & drafty spots. I thought the problem might be the ductwork, however I decided to call the heating supplier to get an expert opinion. A supplier from the heating supplier agreed with our opinion. When he went into the attic to check on the ductwork above the dining room, he found the problem. The sealing tape around the ductwork was no longer sticking to the metal & more than half of the air in the ductwork was escaping instead of answering that dining room. The guy also found a couple of additional areas in the attic that needed to be repaired. The ductwork was In horrible shape & the heating supplier commanded that it was time to think about replacing all of the sheet metal. The quote for that task is quite severe & our partner & I actually don’t have the money to pay for modern ductwork now. All of us got a lot of the problem areas fixed including the area above the dining room. The rest of the repairs will have to wait until our partner & I acquire another stimulus payment from the government. All of us used the last one to repair the car. I think the next one will repair the ductwork.
