Hello everyone, I have noticed our home a little bit dusty (quickly) and figured I would pull off a supply register vent and put my finger in there and take a swipe...what did I find the cellulose that I remember when we blew it in. Not much, but enough of it to know what it is, not dust, etc...I had replaced the filter about a month ago, and already I have noticed a few cat balls of insulation in it!
Before we blew in the cellulose, I spent hours in the attic with mastic tape, and foam sealing all cracks and the return air ducts.
Is there a way to pressurize the system (return air in attic) side that could help assist the process of finding the leak a little bit easier?
I am pretty handy, but before I go up and trample all of the cellulose, I would rather have a PRO give me advice if they were in my shoes. What exactly can be done in a situation like this?
I had thought about turning the furnace on to draw return air, then get in the attic and check each duct myself by hand...seems very tedious and non-efficient.
If there is a professional way of doing this, I would prefer to hear it---I would prefer to have a PRO come do the job..unless all they are going to do is do the same thing I had in mind..sorry guys..just frustrated at this point and want health and safety to be a concern as I do not want to breathe in this stuff.
