He suggested we have a professional ductwork cleaner come in and do the job
I was hearing some odd noises coming from the HVAC system last week. The furnace sounded like metal was against metal every time the furnace turned on. I told my husband I wanted him to call the HVAC company and have them send a technician to the house. He said something that sounded like pshaw. I immediately knew what he was thinking and I had to stop him before he started. He told me I didn’t need an HvAC technician. After reminding him of the debacle he had when trying to service the air conditioning unit, I asked if he was sure he wanted to try working on the furnace. The HVAC technician had chided him once about working on a part of the HVAC system, and what happened if he did harm to the furnace, or to himself. He wasn’t happy about my reminding him about what happened with the air conditioning unit, but he agreed not to work on the furnace. When the HVAC technician arrived, he asked how long it had been since we had the ductwork cleaned. He explained that if the ductwork has a lot of dust inside, it can make the ductwork rattle and it sounds like grating. He suggested we have a professional ductwork cleaner come in and do the job. My husband humphed when he heard the HVAC technician. He was sure he could have come to that conclusion, and I just stared at him. I knew he thought he could do all repairs in the house, but we had a lot of experience with him working on HVAC, and I don’t want to repeat any of those experiences.
