Your heater and air conditioner rely on the same ducts to carry temperature-conditioned air from one place to another. It’s an important function, and dust builds up in those ducts over time, impairing that function from being as efficient as possible.
What that means for you and your family: higher bills, and lower quality indoor air. Duct cleaning in Lake Mary, FL is an often overlooked service, but it’s one we offer because we know how important it is to your home and quality of life overall. Here’s what you need to know about how duct cleaning benefits you.
Sends Less Dust and Debris Into the Air
Your air quality is important, but when it’s compromised by dust and debris in the air, it’s a big deal. Air ducts generally don’t send dust and debris into your air when there’s a year or so of buildup, but as enough time passes, there’s so much that it starts coming out of the vents.
Then your air filter in your AC or furnace gets clogged more often, showing that there’s more dust in the air. That can actually get in the way of operation for your furnace and AC, so dust in the ducts makes the whole cycle of controlling the temperature in your house more difficult.
While your body is good at removing debris and dust from your lungs, it doesn’t mean you should stress out your respiratory waste system more than it needs to be. This can impact your ability to fall asleep and get proper REM sleep since bad indoor air quality can disrupt it.
Reduces Strain on Your HVAC System
Your HVAC system has to work hard, but when it does, it’s using more power and spending the “wear and tear budget” that it has. Wear and tear is simply usage plus time, so the more often it’s used, the more stressed out it will be and spend that operation time frame until it breaks.
When your air ducts are clean, there’s less air resistance, so the temperature-conditioned air gets to its destination without running into trouble. Then the cooling cycles on your AC and heating cycles on your furnace both take longer, requiring more energy spend and wear and tear. Simply put, dirty ducts cost you more money in the long run.
Your goal should always be to reduce the strain on your HVAC system because it extends the possibility of replacing it before the end of its lifespan.
