As you prepare your air conditioning system to beat the sweltering Las Vegas, Nevada, summer heat, one thing you should not overlook is the ductwork. Air ducts are channels that carry cool air from your AC to different parts of your home. While they do not require maintenance as often as the unit itself, they can get dirty or clogged over time. Contaminant buildup can contribute to air conditioning problems and poor indoor air quality (IAQ). If left unattended, dirty ductwork can put a big dent in your wallet. Discover how professional duct cleaning can help you save money.
Improved Energy Efficiency
A buildup of dust, dirt, and debris in your air ducts will restrict airflow and force your AC to work harder and longer. As a result, your AC will consume more energy and increase your utility bills. On the other hand, if your ducts are clean, your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard and will face less wear and tear. Clean ducts help you to lower your energy costs.
Prevent Costly Repairs
Besides using more energy, an air conditioning system with dirty or clogged ducts is more likely to experience mechanical problems. The extra effort required to keep your home cool will put additional strain on the unit, making it more vulnerable to malfunction or breakdown. Major air conditioning problems can be costly to repair and significantly shorten the lifespan of your system. Cleaning your air ducts regularly can help you avoid unnecessary repair costs.
Maintain Good IAQ
If your air ducts are dirty, the air that enters your home via the vents will also be contaminated. Poor air quality can lead to a wide range of health problems. If you notice symptoms such as eye irritation, headache, dizziness, fatigue, and breathing difficulty, these could be signs of poor IAQ.
