My duct work of the ac system got soaking wet, what should I do?
just letting them dry!
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help! Please do not rate me until we have had a chance to work through a solution. This may take a while.
I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble with your A/C system. When ductwork gets wet, it's always a problem. You can try to get in wherever you have access and use a wet vac or towel. But depending on how far the water goes, there may be areas inaccessible. One thing you could do, if you can stand it, is to turn the heat on for a while. This will help it dry out quicker. Or run your fan in the "on" position 24/7.

Tim, I,ve been advised to replace it all. How do you fveel about that advise. It cost 4000.00. Why replace it? Are some insalatted inside?
If the ductwork is rusted from long time exposure to water of if it's insulated and that got wet, then that might be your only option. $4000 sounds a bit high, but then I don't know what kind of ductwork or how many runs you have. In any case, I'd get at least 3 estimates before committing to anything.
Did you know you have a 2nd question open on this site, a duplicate question?
