How Duct Cleaning Will Make Your Heating and Cooling More Efficient

We recommend duct cleaning to help homeowners increase the quality of their indoor air. Because Americans spend an average of 85% of their time indoors, the quality of the air inside homes and businesses is crucial for better health. Keeping your home’s ventilation system clean of excess dust, dirt, dander, pollen, and biological contaminants is an important part of protecting your air quality.

However, there is another important reason to schedule duct cleaning in Lake Worth, FL: it will make your HVAC system more energy-efficient, leading to savings on your annual heating and cooling bills. We’ll go over the ways professional duct cleaning will improve your budget as well as your air. Contact Envirotech Air Quality Services today to ask about the duct cleaning services we can provide for your home.

What does duct cleaning do for AC and heater efficiency?

The ductwork that makes up the ventilation system for your forced-air heater and air conditioner is manufactured to form a seal to prevent a loss of air-pressure. As dust enters the ductwork through the return air vents, it will start to settle in this sealed environment. This layer can become thick if cleaning is neglected, and it will create resistance against the airflow from the heater and air conditioner. The more friction against the airflow, the harder the HVAC system will need to work, and the higher your power bills will rise.

Dirty ducts can also lead to contaminating the HVAC system itself. If the air filter grows too clogged from dust, it will allow debris to get through and into the heater or air conditioner’s cabinet. A dusty HVAC system will work inefficiently and may even cause a complete system breakdown. Even if the dust doesn’t get through the filter, a clogged filter will cut off the airflow and force the system to have to work harder.

A thorough duct cleaning from professionals equipped with power vacuums, agitators, and skill can clear away all these impediments to proper HVAC system function. You’ll have a cleaner heater/air conditioner with clear air channels so it can do the best job it can for you.

Duct cleaning will save money in other ways

Aside from keeping your HVAC system running efficiently, duct cleaning will prevent repair needs or breakdowns because of dust infiltration, and will help prevent corrosion that can lead to breaks along the ductwork.
