Dirty ducts are nothing to sneeze at in your Nacogdoches, Texas, home. Not only can clogged ducts compromise your home's air quality, but they can also result in high utility costs. Learn how cleaning your home's ducts can help you save money by improving indoor air quality and increasing your HVAC system's efficiency.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Even if you're diligent about replacing your home's air filter every one to three months, and you keep common pollutants outside where they belong, your home can still develop poor indoor air quality. Ducts often develop cracks and leaks over time, inviting dust, dirt, and other allergens into the system.
Instead of spending big on an air purifier or another whole-home HVAC part, head off the problem and have your home's ducts cleaned. One of our knowledgeable HVAC technicians can also help you correct any large leaks or holes in the ductwork.
Increase HVAC System Efficiency
Whether your home's ducts accumulate so much dirt and debris that they become clogged or they cause your HVAC system to continually recirculate contaminated air, dirty ducts can lower your HVAC system's efficiency.
Professional duct cleaning can help your home's HVAC system run at optimal performance and peak efficiency again. Since efficient systems use less energy than overworked HVAC systems, you'll notice the savings with lower utility bills.
Extend HVAC System Lifespan
Most HVAC components last for at least a decade, and some can last for twice that time. Neither your air conditioner nor your heat pump will last as long as it's designed to if the units must constantly work around dirty ducts. When you have your ducts cleaned when necessary and schedule preventive maintenance twice a year, you'll save on expensive repairs and spare yourself the cost of an early HVAC system replacement.
