After running for a full season of summer, it is more than likely that your AC and your ductwork got a good workout. It is natural for your system to accumulate dirt and dust during the cooling season, and your ductwork can be a natural place for these particles to reside. However, if left to build-up, this layer can cause problems for you and your air conditioner. Fall is a great time to catch up on the maintenance of your HVAC system, so you may want to consider scheduling an air duct cleaning appointment with your maintenance appointment before the cold weather comes. Let the trained professionals at Raleigh Heating & Air get your HVAC system ready for winter and help improve your indoor air quality.
What Is a Duct Cleaning?
Duct cleaning is the thorough cleaning of your entire ductwork system. Ductwork can be difficult to access, which is why it’s best to schedule duct cleaning with a professional. Also, trained technicians will use professional-grade vacuums and tools to ensure that the cleaning is thorough.
What Are the Benefits to Your AC?
Your AC will gain some important benefits from a professional duct cleaning:
- Better energy efficiency – according to the EPA, removing just 4/10 of an inch of dust from your ductwork can reduce your monthly energy usage up to 20%. This is because any air restriction caused by the build-up in your vents has been removed.
- Increases life of your system – an HVAC system that operates under stress for long periods of time can age prematurely. Keeping all aspects of your system running optimally can lengthen its lifespan.
There are also benefits for you:
- Lower energy bills
- Better indoor air quality
- Reduction of allergens in living spaces
