Air conditioning season is fast approaching in Beaumont, Texas. Don't neglect your ductwork while you're getting your HVAC system ready for the warmer months. Your HVAC system can be one of the biggest money wasters in your home. You can easily save money by cleaning and maintaining the seals on your ducts.
Regular maintenance will keep your HVAC system running smoothly for years to come and will also reduce your overall energy bills. Consider adding professional duct cleaning to your regular spring maintenance list if it's not already there.
As your system runs, dirt, dust, pollen, and other contaminants deposit themselves within your ductwork. These contaminants then get blown throughout your house. Your filter will catch a lot of these particles, but not all of them, and if you have leaks or cracks in your ducts, extra particles can make their way through.
The dirtier your system is, the more air it has to force through the ducts in order to do the same job. If you have blocked ducts, your system will run for much longer than it should. This extra runtime puts more wear and tear on your motor. Cleaning your ducts should be part of your routine maintenance.
Nobody likes the increased energy bills that come with an inefficient HVAC system. Making your system run more efficiently is the easiest way to cut those costs. Your ducts should be clean, appropriately insulated, and properly sealed for greatest efficiency and energy savings. Better air flow means your system will shut off sooner, thus using less energy.
Cleaning your ductwork has a lot of benefits for you and your family. Duct cleaning improves your overall air quality, reduces the likelihood of breakdown, and increases the overall efficiency of your HVAC system.
