Chicago Duct Lining Case Studies
Palos Park, IL – Townhouses
A heating contractor who serviced a townhome development in Palos Park, IL realized that several of the homeowners who owned units on the 1st floor were complaining about high amounts of dust coming out of the registers in the floor when either the heat or air conditioning was on. Trenchless Innovations used their camera to televise all the air ducts from the register vents back to the area under the furnace. It was determined that metal ducts were deteriorating allowing the material around the pipe under the slab floor to enter into the pipe. When the fan on the furnace would turn on it would blow this dirt into the house. Several of the homeowners complained saying they were forced to dust several times a day.
Trenchless Innovations used their Duct Armor product to spray line the existing air ducts and re-build the ducts from within. The process was done over a two day period. The homeowner was able to use their furnace immediately each day after Trenchless Innovations left. The result was a new pipe being formed on the inside of the old pipes. All the holes where the dirt was entering into the ducts were sealed, and the homeowner immediately experienced a much lower amount of dust in the house.
Lincolnshire, Il – Trenchless Innovations Saves A Realtor From Losing A Sale
Trenchless Innovations received a call from a realtor in the Northern IL area. The realtor had a buyer for a house in Lincolnshire, IL, but the sale was in jeopardy, because the buyer learned that the under slab ducts were deteriorated and at times would have standing water in them. The house which is pictured to the right had vaulted ceilings with no attic, so turning the heating system overhead would have meant major construction and would have altered the look of the interior.
Trenchless Innovation performed an inspection of the ducts and also of the property to access the reason for water in the vents. Several things were found during the inspection of the property such as downspout and sump pump lines that dropped water directly against the house, leading to excess water being deposited against the house and thus causing water to enter into the ducts. Steps were made to extend the downspout and sump pump discharge lines, moving the water away from the house.
Once the water problem was resolved, Trenchless Innovations sprayed the interior of the underground ducts with their Duct Armor duct lining material. The ducts were rehabilitated from the inside, eliminating the need for turning the system overhead or having to break up the floors in order to repair the deteriorating ducts. With the new liner installed in the pipes, the sale of the house went through saving the realtor and the seller a loss of a sale.
