Air Duct Sealing
When an issue with AC occurs, we somehow get to know, but one of the prominent signs of it is increased hefty bills, and malfunctioning HVAC that just doesn’t seem to do its job. One of our clients’ who goes by the name Anna had recently started noticing the heavy bills and her AC not doing the job efficiently, but not anyone is really going to think that issue is due to air ducts or anything. Like anyone else, she called the local AC technicians to check up on the HVAC unit and they noticed nothing wrong with it.
Stumbling upon one company and technician on another in Baytown, TX area, she finally found Baytown TX Air Duct Cleaning and then she could relate to all the signs we had listed on our site. She immediately called us on 281-872-6148, and our technicians were there in less than half an hour and got the issue sorted immediately. Turned out, she had a clogged air duct system that was also improperly sealed causing all the trouble.
If you can imagine having a clogged pipeline, then imagine the same with your air conditioning system. When your pipes don’t have a free water flow, things would get pretty nasty, so what happens when your AC dryer vents get clogged? The same. No air flow, poor air quality, overheating of the AC, it’d all be a common occurrence.
