Leak in the ductwork
We had initially called the air conditioning supplier for HVAC maintenance and decided to add cleaning of the air duct as an afterthought, we have a four-year-old, and the last time we had the vents cleaned was a month before we brought him home from the hospital, and from what we knew about the cooling industry, it was about time for it, the indoor comfort company truck was packed in our driveway by more than one in the morning.
The air conditioning specialist started finally working on the unit, then he began by cleaning the ducts and discovered a leak.
The A/C serviceman showed us the dirt and grime from the ducts. The other surprising thing was a stuffed bunny that we had bought Kyle when he was just months old. We had no idea how it had gotten in the air duct or when we had forgotten it. The temperature control was less than a year old, and the tech confirmed that it did not have any problem. We were shocked to hear that our quality air conditioner had some troubles we had not noticed. He finished the air conditioning maintenance to ensure that the HVAC replacement worked optimally and the air quality was at its best. We initially wanted the air conditioning provider to install a multi-split A/C, but the upfront cost was a lot, so we settled for an alternative, and from then on, we took it upon ourselves to learn more about air conditioning so that by the time we need modern equipment. We would be well aware of the costs and functionality of each type of unit. In the meantime, we would figure out how to disinfect the lost and found the stuffed bunny.
