Especially during the peak summer and winter months, heating and cooling your Grand Island home accounts for a huge portion of your overall energy expenditures. One of the best ways to cut down on the energy you use for heating and cooling is keep your air ducts clean. When your ducts become blocked, your HVAC system has to work much harder to distribute heated or cooled air throughout your home, which in turn leads to higher energy costs.
Keeping your air ducts clean will help your system use less energy and save you money every month on heating and cooling costs.
Indoor Air Quality Improvements
In the average six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually, and that dust almost definitely winds up inside your air ducts. Along with with dust, families create a number of other pollutants that can wind up in the duct system, like pet dander and harsh chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the duct system and re-circulated throughout your Grand Island home 5 to 7 times each day, on average. This circulation leads to build-ups, and this can ultimately cause your home's indoor air to become a health hazard.
Dirty ducts do not necessarily mean that your indoor air is contaminate,d but they can contribute to health issues including allergic reactions, asthmatic conditions, and respiratory problems.
Extended Equipment Life
Keeping your ducts clean can help you prevent premature breakdowns and aging of your Grand Island home's heating and cooling systems. A build-up of dust and contaminants can cause your heat exchanger to overheat, as it won't be able to be cooled as well while it's functioning. This is the most common cause of cracks in the heat exchanger, which is a common cause of many serious HVAC problems.
