Keeping your ducts clean and inspected regularly will ensure your system is in good condition and keeping your home cool and comfortable as efficiently as possible.
You’ll benefit from increased airflow, and increased airflow means that your HVAC unit is working less, thus lowering your energy bill- and it doesn’t take much to do!
Here are a few tips on ductwork maintenance that will keep your air conditioner running clean and efficiently.
The first step to clean ducts is keeping dirt and debris out. We recommend changing your filter on a regular basis to reduce the chances of dust and pollutants settling in your ducts.
The second biggest threat to ducts is moisture, especially for homeowners living in Central Florida.
Moisture can enter the ductwork if it has leaks, if it’s poorly maintained, or if it was improperly installed. And if there are high levels of moisture in your home, the potential for mold increases, which greatly reduces your indoor air quality.
Why is it so important to have good clean air quality?
Indoor air pollution could be affecting your health on many levels. It is very common for the quality of air inside your home to be much worse than the air outside.
A few common symptoms that you may experience with poor indoor air quality or air that is contaminated with pollutants is fatigue, frequent headaches, constant sneezing, respiratory problems. Air pollutants like dust, dust mites, fungi, bacteria, viruses, mold, pollen, spores, allergens, and other unwanted debris can easily find their way into your home greatly increasing the risk of having health problems for you and your family.
If your HVAC unit hasn’t been properly maintained, was not installed correctly, and is getting old, there is a high chance that your family is at risk of having health issues.
Allergen sufferers, the young, the elderly, and immune compromised persons are especially at risk. One of the best ways to avoid issues with your HVAC unit and your health is to have your air ducts cleaned by a professional. Having your air ducts cleaned on a regular basis by a professional HVAC technician is highly recommended for the overall health of your home and the function of your HVAC unit.
Older homes with poorly maintained ductwork can be a serious issue. Some ductwork can actually become unattached and will definitely decrease airflow.
