Heating plus A/C tech recommended full air duct replacement

A year ago, our routine Heating plus A/C house services heating service was done just before winter.

The Heating plus A/C tech recommended replacing the worn-out air duct if my nice friend and I wanted to save on energy plus avoid future heating service because there were obvious wear plus tear on the ducts.

I wondered why my nice friend and I could not do duct sealing like my nice friend and I had done before in a previous heating unit servicing visit. The Heating plus A/C serviceman mentioned that given that the sealant had not held on well plus there were new tears, the only long-term solution would be a replacement. It’s wild that the ducts were getting worn out, yet the boiler was still absolutely functional, but my nice friend and I were told that my nice friend and I installed a poor-quality duct according to the heating industry standards. My associate and I had bought the house when it was already done, so my nice friend and I had no way of ensuring that everything installed was top quality, but thankfully, the quality troubles only seemed to affect one part of the heating technology. I hoped fixing the duct issue would offer a permanent solution because the heating dealer expert had a point, doing repairs by sealing every season was not laboring, plus my nice friend and I needed to stop thinking about the issue permanently or at least for a while longer. I didn’t need a second opinion because the worker was reputable, plus I have not had reasons to doubt their recommendations. My associate and I also needed to replace the digital control unit, which had trouble self-regulating. During a random banter with the worker, she told me my nice friend and I were nice candidates for the heat pump plus offered information about it. I am considering it not only because it saves me the trouble of ducts but also seems more energy efficient, although I need to research more about it before making final decisions.
