I thought I had our home fairly well-sealed, even though I found out the hard way Last month that our assumptions were gravely mistaken. Although I had done a moderately great job with the weather stripping on all of our windows as well as doors, I forgot to inspect our air intake vents on the outside of our house. These vents pull in fresh air from outdoors to circulate with the Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C cycled air indoors. In several cases this can lead to better air quality inside your home overall. Unfortunately, these areas are also prime environments for bees as well as wasps looking for shelter from the elements. One afternoon I was in our bathroom when our heat kicked on. Within minutes many wasps started flying out of our air vent in the ceiling. I was both baffled as well as freaked out by the event. I had no plan how extensive the nest was, or if there was even a nest at all, so I called a local Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C contractor. Unfortunately, there was disfigure to the filter on the fresh air intake, so bees as well as debris as well as dirt were getting pull into our central system. My Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C worker upgraded the filter as well as repaired the disfigure to the intake inlet to make sure nothing as huge as a bee or wasp could make their way into our lake house love this again. Once the tech located the wasp nest, he used an eco-friendly insect repellent to get the wasps out so he could manually remove the nest. It’s essential to steer clear of any harmful pesticides or insecticides when you’re dealing with pests in your air system. Those chemicals will accumulate up there as well as you’ll never be able to fully clean your air system, regularly breathing small amounts of toxic fumes every single afternoon. Now that our air intake inlet is repaired, I don’t have to fear bees flying out of our vents at random moments of the afternoon.
