Duct Cleaning Takes Care of Clogs

Clogs are a big red flag for your HVAC system and lead to several furnace performance problems. It's a telltale sign that your furnace needs maintenance.

  • Airflow and Functioning. Clogged ducts make it difficult for airflow to get through your system, thus making your HVAC system work much harder each time it's in use. These clogs can be created due to all the dust, pollen, dander, and other pollutants that regularly circulate through your home’s air. They enter your HVAC system bit by bit, creating clogs that limit the performance of your furnace.

  • Furnace Malfunctions. When your ducts and filters become clogged, the heat exchanger can malfunction. A malfunctioning heat exchanger won't let you get the temperatures that you need to warm your hot. Clogged ducts can also damage your furnace pressure switches to the point that the system won't even cut on.

  • Uneven Heating. Additionally, if there's a blockage in the ducts, certain areas might receive less heat, leading to uneven heating. Proper HVAC and furnace maintenance helps maintain a comfortable and consistent temperature in all rooms.

If you suspect clogged ducts in your home, speak with a professional duct cleaning service to avoid these common issues.

You Experience Better Air Quality

Have you ever noticed that your allergies suddenly get worse or the air becomes stuffier once you turn on your home’s heat? Taking care of your indoor air quality is essential for any homeowner. When you get your air ducts cleaned, you also improve the air quality in your household.

With regular furnace maintenance and duct cleaning, everyone in the house will breathe cleaner air with fewer impurities. People in your household who suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues will also be able to breathe a sigh of relief.

It Reduces Your Energy Bills

If you're like most households, you are looking for ways to save money on energy bills each month. Cleaning your furnace ducts is a great way to make this happen.

Your furnace won’t have to work as hard and won't expel as much energy. This dip in energy consumption means that you'll reduce the amount of money that you pay each month in energy bills.

It's normal to think about bills when you're trying to get your HVAC system ready for the winter chill. Consider getting a home energy audit and HVAC system inspection to understand how the system is performing.
