Only after all the ducts were clean would they start sealing the gaps
Being a worker at the college was an excellent opportunity to provide for my family. It meant we could live in the college staff quarters, and my kids loved the ambience. One of the primary jobs I had to do was make sure things were working. I checked the water, gas, and air conditioning in the school. In case of any issues, I’d get in touch with the right technicians to come and do repairs. One day, we had a problem with the air conditioning system that seemed to be working effectively. Students were complaining that the classes were cold and they felt uncomfortable. So I had to phone the HVAC company in the city to send us AC technicians to take a look. Two HVAC experts arrived at the college half an hour later and began diagnosing the problem with the heating system. After some time, they informed me we needed better duct sealing to prevent the loss of warm air. The ductwork in the school was well installed but still caused lots of warm air to escape when the AC was operational. Duct sealing was the right solution because it would improve the comfort levels for students in the classroom. Once the spaces were no more, the classes would get warmer. Another benefit was better indoor air quality during winter and summer. The risk of outdoor pollutants finding ways to the classes would reduce significantly. Only good air would blow into each room. Also, the school would save lots of money since the team had to do duct cleaning first. Only after all the ducts were clean would they start sealing the gaps. This also reduced the chances of rodents and other critters finding their way into the air vents and building nests. If this happened, we would suffer from more duct issues that hamper the AC unit.
