The National Air Duct Cleaners Association reports that up to 40 pounds of dust is created each year simply through everyday living. This dust often ends up in your heating and cooling system — the “lungs of your home” — causing it to work harder to keep you and your family comfortable. Here’s how cleaning your air ducts can boost efficiency:
1. Better air flow
If the flow of air within your ductwork is restricted, your heating and cooling system can’t work as efficiently as possible. It will have to work harder and longer to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home. Having your air ducts professionally cleaned will help air flow more freely.
2. Proper air filtration
An HVAC system’s air filter must be kept clean. Otherwise, there could be an increase in static pressure, decreasing the system’s efficiency. When a technician from EnviroGreen Boston cleans your air ducts, he or she will check the conditions of your filter as well.
3. Improved performance of components
Cleaning your air ducts will also ensure that the components of your heating and cooling system are working well. This equipment needs to be cleaned and protected so that it can work in favor of your home’s air quality. When these parts are neglected, your whole system’s performance could be compromised.
