In your home, you want the air to be as clean and as free of pollutants as possible. One way to help accomplish this is to make sure that the ductwork is cleaned on a regular basis. If you are not sure how often the ductwork should be cleaned, make sure to contact us and we can inspect it for you. The ductwork cleaning should be done based on your home and lifestyle.
Cleaning the ductwork depends on a variety of factors, including pets, smoking, recent renovations, local weather conditions and overall home cleanliness. This will help the air in your home to be easier to breathe for all your family members. Ductwork cleaning also provides several benefits in your home.
A cleaning does not just sweep the ducts, but addresses every component air passes over, including coils and the central system. Dirty coils and blowers can cut efficiency by as much as 40 percent. Duct cleaning is an essential part of home maintenance. When the components are loaded up with debris, the system has to work harder. When you remove that debris, you get energy consumption savings.
Ductwork cleaning also helps with the efficiency of the whole HVAC system. If you start to notice that the set temperature on the thermostat is different than the actual temperature, it could mean an issue with the ductwork. The unit may operate correctly, but the air will not be able to reach the rooms in your home because of the dirt and dust. It may also blow this back into the home, making it more difficult to breathe. If you have a family member who suffers from asthma or allergies, keeping the air in your home as clean as possible is important.
The filter of the furnace should also be inspected. The main purpose of the filter is to collect dirt, dust, and other contaminants that are in the air. Never run the HVAC system without the filter. This can lead to more contaminants in the system, and also adding more dirt and dust to the ductwork. Anytime you notice an issue with the system, make sure to contact us so we can inspect it for you. This will help you to save time, money, and stress in the long run.
