Unfortunately, your forced air system ductwork is a common culprit for inefficiency and energy loss. If you’ve noticed your heating and cooling bills rising without any change in your heating and cooling habits, have a Melbourne FL air conditioning professional inspect your duct system. Duct cleaning or repair may be necessary, and can help you keep your home comfortable with greater efficiency. Next Generation Air and Heat has some information to share with you about the benefits of duct cleaning and repair.
As air circulates throughout your home dust and pollutants may be carried into your ductwork. If these contaminants are allowed to accumulate it can wind up reducing air flow, causing resistance that forces your home heating and cooling system to work harder while providing less comfort to your home. By having your ductwork professionally cleaned you can restore proper air flow, potentially improving efficiency and saving money when heating and cooling your home. Just because your ducts are hidden out of sight in your home does not mean that they do not deserve the same level of maintenance and care that is provided to the rest of your system. If you’ve noticed increased costs associated with heating and cooling your home or decreased performance from your comfort system, call a Melbourne FL duct cleaning professional.
Another issue that may affect the efficiency with which heated and cooled air is dispersed throughout your house is duct damage. Whatever the cause – be it improper design, installation, age or wear and tear – any poor connections or corroded ductwork in your system must be repaired in order to get the best performance possible with the greatest amount of efficiency from your home heating and cooling system. If your comfort system seems to be running more often to maintain the same temperature levels as usual it is very possible that there is a problem with your ductwork requiring repairs. Air leaks are a great way to waste money on energy costs, so any damage to your ducts should be assessed and professionally repaired as soon as the problem presents itself. Air loss is a leading cause of efficiency, and depending on the cause of the air loss and the size of the leaks, holes or tears in your ductwork you can waste large quantities of energy. Keeping your air inside your ducts for dispersal throughout your home means that your energy and the money it costs you are being put to good use.
