Why Duct Cleaning is Good for Your AC System
Air Duct cleaning should be done every two or three years to make certain that the air ducts that are connected to your heating and cooling system remain clear from dirt build up, dust, bugs, dander, hair fibers, and other pollutants.
Only professionals using professional equipment can do air duct cleaning to ensure the removal of the most amount of contamination.
Clean ducts = a better HVAC system
The air duct work in your home is part of your HVAC system (it’s the “V,” which stands for “ventilation”). Clean air ducts mean you’ll have a more efficient system. Here are two of the ways that maintaining clean air ducts benefit your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system:
- Lower heating and cooling bills: Living in Southern California means using your air conditioning… a lot. But when its cold, air ducts are used for heating as well. If air that goes through the ducts encounter friction from thick layers of dust, dirt, lint, and other contaminants it will make the AC and heater work much harder. The dirtier the ducts become, the more energy-efficiency the system will lose, and you will experience higher bills. Also, when the air ducts are dirty, the air filters get clogged sooner. This cuts down airflow into the AC cabinet. Air duct cleaning will help keep your energy bills down to their lowest possible level.
- System damage: Dirt inside a heater or air conditioner will cause the internal components to start to wear down faster. Motors will work with additional friction, leading to burnout; coils will begin to ice over; and burners will have trouble starting. You’ll have a broken down system and one that will be expense to fix.
Lastly, the most important reason these days is Health
- Healthy Air: A Clean air distribution system means CLEANER air that you and your family breathe inside your home. This is crucial to everyone you love. A clean air duct system can help reduce allergy outbreaks, runny nose and itchy eyes. If there is someone that suffers from respiratory problems in the home, this will help.
