Spring is the perfect time to start thinking about energy-efficient upgrades for your home. During your spring HVAC maintenance, you should take the opportunity to consider how air duct cleaning can help you save money and be more energy efficient. Air duct cleaning is a necessary part of keeping your HVAC system running smoothly and efficiently, but it’s often overlooked as a way to reduce energy bills and make your home greener. Let’s explore why air duct cleaning is so important and how it can improve your home’s efficiency.
The Benefits of Clean Air Ducts
(Keeping the air in your house clean)
Regularly cleaning air ducts has been proven to improve indoor air quality and reduce allergens, pet dander, dust, mold spores, and other contaminants that circulate through the vents every time your HVAC system kicks on. This helps prevent respiratory illnesses and other health issues related to poor indoor air quality. Plus, when you have clean ducts airflow is improved, allowing your HVAC system to work more efficiently by using less energy to move the same amount of air throughout your home. This leads to lower energy bills as well as lower greenhouse gas emissions from heating or cooling systems that use fossil fuels (like oil or natural gas).
How Air Duct Cleaning Works
(An Overview of How Air Duct Cleaning)
Air duct cleaning typically involves vacuuming each individual register with a specialized vacuum cleaner designed specifically for this purpose. Then, all of the supply registers are sealed off one at a time while the vacuum cleaner runs for several minutes before moving onto the next register. This process sucks up any dirt particles or debris from inside the registers. Once all of the registers have been cleaned, technicians will usually spray an antimicrobial disinfectant into each register to kill any lingering mold spores or bacteria in order to further improve indoor air quality.
It’s easy to overlook air duct cleaning during spring HVAC maintenance, as its benefits may not be immediately apparent—but they are indeed significant!
