Each year before the summer season begins, my wife and I have a full system tune-up performed on our HVAC unit.
- The full system tune-up covers all of the electrical and mechanical parts of the HVAC system.
For the past five years, my wife and I have diligently had the service performed. This year was the first time we ever received bad news during a tune-up. The service technician checked the quality of our ductwork and found some issues. The service tune up showed a loose duct above our bedroom. The ducting was detached from the rest of the system. This was likely the reason why we were having so many issues cooling our bedroom. The service technician gave us a great deal on the labor and fees for the ductwork repair. It took about an hour to complete the work. The service technician also evaluated the rest of our duct work while he was in the attic. He did not find any additional spots that needed work, but he did say that our ductwork was very old and would need to be replaced in the next five years. Replacing all of the ductwork is an extremely expensive and time-consuming job. When that time finally arrives, the two of us we’ll find the cheapest and best provider to handle all of the work. That type of job will require multiple estimates from several different HVAC service contractors in the valley. We will definitely want to be sure to get the best price when having all of the remaining ductwork replaced.
