Have you checked on your air ducts lately?
An air duct is an essential part of your air conditioning system. They are the pathways for hot and cool air to travel throughout your home. If not properly maintained, these passageways can fill up with contaminants and dust that accumulate over time. The buildup of mold, dust, and bacteria in your air ducts can cause allergies and other respiratory problems.
As a homeowner, what are some common problems you may encounter with your ducts?
When the connections between the ducts themselves become loose or aren’t connected properly, air can escape. Not only does this waste energy, but it also can allow hazardous gasses to leak into your air conditioning system. This can also result in high energy bills.
A poorly designed duct system can result in inefficiencies. The unit may be too big for your home (or office space), causing it to lose a lot of energy. If the unit is too small, it may force the unit to work too hard, potentially resulting in a malfunction. A professional can check out your ducts and advise you on any actions you may need to take.
Restriction of Air Flow
When air is not flowing freely through your air duct system, this also causes your unit to work harder. Unrestricted air flow is essential to your HVAC system. Without it, your system can break down more often and leave you with high energy bills. An experienced professional from AllPro A/C and Heating can properly clean your ducts and address any potential issues.
As you can see a lot of the common issues lead to high bills, potentially extensive repairs, and even allergies or respiratory issues.
The best way to avoid these problems and ensure your ducts are properly connected and in working order is to have a professional look at your system. You can also have them clean your air ducts regularly and of course you should always be sure to change your air filters when you are supposed to.
Keeping your air ducts clean and knowing they are in good condition is not only beneficial to your health but it could also save you lots of money!
