If you have a central air conditioning system, then you may also very well have a furnace that shares ductwork with said system. After running for a full season, it’s more than likely that your air ducts got a good workout. It’s normal for your system to accumulate dirt and dust throughout months of use, and your air ducts can be the natural place for these particles to rest.
However, if dust and other debris is left to build-up, then this layer of grime can cause problems for your air quality and your air conditioning system. Spring is a great time to schedule maintenance for your HVAC system, so consider scheduling an air duct cleaning appointment with a trained professional soon.
What Is Duct Cleaning?
During duct cleaning, your HVAC technicians will conduct a thorough cleaning of your entire air duct system. This ductwork can be hard to access, so it’s best to schedule professional duct cleaning versus hiring an unlicensed “handyman.” Additionally, our trained technicians will use professional-grade equipment and tools to make sure that the cleaning is as effective as possible.
How Does This Benefit Your Air Conditioner?
Your air conditioning system will see numerous benefits after a professional duct cleaning, including:
- Better Energy Efficiency: According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), removing even just 4/10 of an inch of dust from you ductwork can reduce your monthly energy usage by as much as 20%. The reason for this is because any air restriction caused by the build-up in your vents has been removed.
- Increased System Lifespan: HVAC systems that operate under stress for lengthy period of time have the potential to shutdown prematurely. It’s important to keep all aspects of your system running optimally in order to increase the life of your system. This includes properly cleaned and functioning ductwork.
Other benefits of professional duct cleaning services include:
- Lower utility bills.
- Better indoor air quality.
- Reduced allergens in living space.
