Your ductwork is out of sight, so it’s likely to be out of mind, too. You know that it’s inside your home, but you don’t think much about this hugely important component of your HVAC system. The air ducts in your HVAC system contribute to how efficiently your air conditioner can cool and heat your home, so it’s important to keep them clean.
Duct cleaning in Duncanville, TX has never been easier. You may not think that a tiny layer of dust inside your ductwork matters, but it does. The negative affect on your home and health can be big. Don’t you want to improve your HVAC efficiency and your family’s health all at once? All it takes is professional duct cleaning. Keep reading to learn more about how professional duct cleaning works and what you can expect.
Improving Indoor Air Quality With Professional Duct Cleaning
The number one reason for scheduling professional duct cleaning is to improve your indoor air quality. Your air conditioner has an air filter that catches a lot of large particles like dust, dirt, and pet hair. But residential air filters just can’t filter out the smallest particles that are in your air. These tiny particles enter your HVAC system and eventually end up in your ductwork, among other places.
This may not seem like a big deal, but dust can build up inside your ductwork just like it settles on surfaces around your home. Allergens, irritants, and contaminants can also enter your ductwork through cracks and holes in the seals. Then when air blows through to enter your home, the dust stirs up and blows into your home as well. When you schedule a professional duct cleaning and eliminate this buildup, the air you breathe is clearer.
Improve HVAC System Efficiency
Aside from improving your health, you can also improve your air conditioner’s efficiency. If you have a forced-air system, dust and dirt can create friction inside your unit. This friction interferes with airflow so that the air pressure isn’t as strong when it enters your home. This can lead to less cool air and your unit working harder to produce and blow more air into your home.
And when your system is working harder, it costs more to run. This means that your energy bills go up month after month. It may only be a dollar or two at first, but if your energy bill increases steadily without reason, dirty ducts may be part of the problem.
Our professionals can assess your ductwork and make repairs to help improve efficiency. But keep in mind that sometimes ducts need to be replaced. When this happens, we may be able to replace a portion of the ductwork. Other times we just need to replace seals, and sometimes we need to replace it all.
