The ductwork in your HVAC system is essential for keeping your family in Spring Lake, North Carolina, comfortable. The air in your home travels through the ductwork several times per day. Many sections of your ductwork are difficult to access, sitting behind walls or in crawlspaces. To avoid costly problems, a professional should inspect your ductwork periodically. Here’s how regular ductwork maintenance can help you save:
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Contaminants like dirt, dust, pollen, bacteria, and pet dander can collect in your ductwork and spread to the rest of your home. Your ducts could also have pests, pest droppings and cobwebs. Scheduling a professional duct cleaning every few years will prevent bad smells and health problems like allergy and asthma symptoms. It can also help you keep your floors and furniture dust-free.
Lower Monthly Utility Bills
Buildup of any kind in your ductwork reduces your HVAC system’s airflow, forcing it to work harder to maintain comfort for your family. Leaks or gaps can also make your system less efficient by letting conditioned air escape. Having your ductwork inspected by a professional will help lower energy bills and eliminate cold or warm drafts.
Prevent System Damage
Maintaining your ductwork will help you prevent contaminants from damaging your HVAC system. It can also prevent rattling or whistling sounds from loose or leaky ductwork. Regular ductwork maintenance helps you avoid temperature fluctuations and keeps all the rooms in your home comfortable. It can even extend your HVAC system’s life.
