Restore Peak Performance to Your HVAC System With Cleaning | SERVPRO® of Western Dutchess County
We all feel grateful for air conditioning in the heat of the Hudson Valley summer, but without regular maintenance, your HVAC system could be costing you money in repairs and untimely breakdowns.
By taking care of your AC unit through regular maintenance and duct cleaning, you are investing in a future of climate-controlled comfort, improving your home’s indoor air quality and helping your system run more efficiently.
How Can HVAC Cleaning Make My System More Efficient?
An HVAC unit that has to fight through dust and debris to pump out air is going to have to work harder and expend more energy to get the same amount of cool air distributed around your home. Considering that about half of your home’s energy usage goes to heating and cooling, helping things run a little smoother can make a big difference in your overall bill costs.
After the dirt, dust and grime that builds up in your vents and ducts is cleaned out, your air can flow more freely through the home, allowing your system to expend less energy to adjust the temperature.
How Can That Make My System Last Longer?
With proper maintenance and cleaning, a homeowner can expect an HVAC unit to last 15–20 years—but due to negligence and improper cleaning, that is not always the case. Because a dirty HVAC unit is consistently under stress when the system is on, it will deteriorate more quickly because of the energy it is expending.
Additionally, substances like mold and mildew can build up within your ducts and cause significant damage to your unit, which requires professional remediation to prevent further spread throughout the house.
Rodents and pests can also make themselves at home in your ducts, leading to an extreme pest control issue if left undisturbed. Having your ducts cleaned ensures you are able to identify problems that can lead to costly breakdowns and repairs early on instead of waiting until a major issue occurs.
By taking proper precautions and keeping your HVAC ducts clean, you are protecting the investment you have made in your home. Because of all the issues can arise, calling a professional to assess if your ducts need cleaning is the surest course of action to be proactive about problems.
