Can air duct cleaning affect HVAC efficiency?
Summertime is when you fully appreciate the ability to walk in your house and have a blast of cool air greet you on the way in. Don’t let a lack of care lead to that wonderful experience being taken away from you. Keep your HVAC system unning smoothly by doing routine maintenance and having it checked periodically by an HVAC specialist.
Replacing your air filter on a regular basis will not only make the air you breathe inside your home cleaner, but it will allow the unit to run more efficiently, which saves you money. Getting a tune up can make a big difference too.
Some homoeowners also have their air ducts cleaned, although opinions differ on how much impact that step may have.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, there is no definitive proof that routine duct cleaning improves indoor air quality. However, the EPA does recommend duct cleaning when evidence can be seen indicating that the ducts contain a buildup of dust or pet hair.
