The Ductwork Had Holes in It

All summer, I had been noticing that an area of my house was warmer than others.

It was the guest bedroom which rarely got used, but it was still noticeable whenever I walked in. Every time I crossed the threshold into the guest bedroom, I noticed a difference in temperature, but I assumed it was something to do with the sun. There were a lot of windows in the bedroom which let in a lot of natural sunroom. I assumed the sunlight was heating the room to a warmer temperature. I decided to close the curtains to block out the extra sunlight, but that still didn’t help lower the temperature. Upon noticing this, I decided to hire an HVAC company to come look at my AC system. If the natural sunlight wasn’t heating the guest bedroom, there had to be an issue with the AC system. The HVAC technician that came, took a look at everything and I was prepared for him to tell me that something needed to be repaired within the AC equipment. What he actually said shocked me. According to him, the ductwork connecting to the guest bedroom’s air vent had numerous holes in it, so the cool air was escaping before it made it through the vent. There were so many holes and some of them quite large, so I needed to replace that portion of the ductwork immediately. Thankfully, I didn’t need to replace all of the existing ductwork or that could have gotten expensive.
