As we near the end of summer, there’s no doubt that your air conditioning system—and its ductwork—got a good workout. Naturally, your system will have accumulated dirt and dust during the last few months, and your air ducts are a natural place for those particles to settle. However, if these irritants are left in your ductwork to build-up, then your air conditioner can start to experience issues.
Fall will be here before we know it, and that’s a great time to catch up on HVAC maintenance. In addition to scheduling an AC maintenance appointment, it may be a very good decision to also schedule duct cleaning. Keep reading to learn more about this service.
What Is Duct Cleaning?
This is a service in which our HVAC professionals will conduct a thorough cleaning of your entire air duct system. This component of your HVAC system can be difficult to access and as such is easy to make a mistake when handling, therefore it’s best to schedule duct cleaning with a trained professional. Our expertly trained staff will use specialized vacuums and other tools to make sure that the cleaning is done efficiently.
How does it Help My Cooling System?
One of the biggest advantages of duct cleaning is that it improves the energy efficiency of your HVAC system. In fact according to the EPA, removing even just 4/10 of an inch of dust from your air ducts can reduce your monthly energy use by as much as 20%! This is because there are far fewer obstructions for your vents to contend with.
Duct cleaning also helps increase the lifespan of your HVAC system. If your cooling system is constantly under stress—which it is if it’s struggling to produce a decent airflow—then it prematurely ages. However, if all aspects of your system are kept running as they should, then they have the potential to last much longer.
