How Air Duct Cleaning Can Improve Home HVAC Efficiency

How Air Duct Cleaning Can Improve Home HVAC EfficiencyAir duct cleaning not only improves the air quality of a home, but it can also boost your HVAC efficiency. Brown’s Heating, Cooling and Plumbing provides air duct cleaning services to help you save money with better system efficiency and give you and your family cleaner air to breath. Routine maintenance can create an energy efficient HVAC and lengthen the life of your equipment.

Creating HVAC Efficiency

Tucked neatly behind your walls and under your floors, air ducts silently carry heated or cooled air from your HVAC to the rooms in your home. Over time, significant amounts of dust can build up making it difficult for your air ducts to deliver warm or cooled air to your living spaces. Major blockages in your air ducts can hamper airflow and will likely mean higher energy costs over time.
You should always call the professionals for air duct cleaning in NJ, but there are also some simple steps you can take in order to help clean your air ducts. Without good ductwork, your heating and air conditioning system wouldn’t be able to do its job which is why it’s important to take proper care of your ducts. Below are a few common signs that air duct blockages could be causing a decrease in your HVAC efficiency.

Common Air Duct Problems

  • Insects or rodent droppings – If you see insect carcasses or rodent droppings in your air ducts, it is a pretty good sign they should be cleaned. Not only will these bi-products circulate in the air in your home, they could also be signs that insects have nested or you have rodents living in your air ducts.
  • Mold– When you are getting a musty smell coming from your HVAC system, that’s a sure sign to call in the professionals; a Brown’s HVAC technician can inspect your ducts for mold. Trapped moisture can cause mold which can not only be dangerous to health, but also very damaging to your HVAC efficiency.
  • Dust or Debris – If your ducts are significantly clogged with dust or debris, there may be other issues affecting the efficiency of your system. Check your air filter, if it is heavily clogged, chances are your system is working harder to keep your home at the proper temperature- working overtime. In order for your home to stay at a comfortable temperature, the air must be circulating adequately to reach the thermostat. In addition, dust can affect indoor air quality. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 8 out of 10 people in the United States are exposed to house dust mites. A service professional will clean the ducts, along with the vents, to get fresh, debris-free air flowing again.

Ultimate HVAC Efficiency
