Hello, I am hopeful that someone in here can point me in the right direction or help.
My house is about 9 or 10 years old. One of the vents in a bedroom gets no air from it. Forced Air system. Gas Furnance (carrier) in Garage. Room is directly above the furnance (vent is on other side of room though).
I was going to get my Air Ducts cleaned out someone said I should do that about every 10 years and I see the ads from Sears and other places to clean out the vents. So I thought this is a good time to fix that vent that has no air coming from it. But I found out that most places that I called either 1. do not fix this or 2. said they would look at it but wouldn't get more specific and mentioned some extra charge of like $85 to go in the crawl or something.
I have already checked right under the vent grate to see if it is attached there (and it is). I put a fish tape down the vent and it seemed to go about 10 feet or so then got hung up.
By the way, there is another room adjacent to this one with the broken vent and it works fine. Same size room and everything. Vent is in similiar place in the room. this room is on the 2nd floor (2 story house) and as I said furnance is under this room basically.
I think I need a camera to find where the vent came seperated but I have called around here (seattle) and no one seems to have one. I was thinking about sticking my own camera down there or buying a wireless mini spy camera on ebay to try to find where the thing is broken? or Clogged?
I had a guy look at it who knows more than I do and I believe he said it was a "flex shaft" or something a one piece system.
Does anyone have any idea on how to go about fixing this?
Any responses are appreciated. And if anyone knows and individual or company in Seattle who might be able to fix this (I Think they need a camera). Please let me know!
Thanks for reading this post.
