I had a bit of a sticky issue lately, and when I mean sticky, I actually really mean it in every single sense of the word! To get right to the point, the air vents of my HVAC unit were not closing when I wanted them to.
So, since the air vents would not close, I decided to try a little do it yourself kind of thing, and bought some duct tape.
You see, what would happen, is every time that I tried to close the air vents, they would stick and then slam right open again. When I got the duct tape and put it on the one area of the air vents that seemed to be causing the issue, these things actually would stay shut. It would be a bit of a task though having to scrape off the duct tape to be able to open up the air vents once again when I wanted the air to come out in that specific room. After about 2 months of dealing with this, I finally decided to break down and just call my local HVAC company to come out to try to fix these air vent issues I was having. The HVAC specialist that they sent kind of laughed at me with the duct tape all over the place. He was able to fix the sticking air vents within a matter of minutes. He and the heating and air conditioning company he worked for were really cool about the whole situation. They didn’t charge me the full hourly rate, and pro rated the HVAC call to charge me for just a half an hour.
