As the season changes and the warm summer breeze changes to cold gusts of fall wind, many of us will be turning on the heat, for the first time in months. But, nothing is free, and neither is heating up your home with your furnace. One of the largest sources of energy consumption in homes is the HVAC system.
Reduce your energy consumption and energy bills
Energy bills can be cut by as much as 20 to 30% according to this blog post by NADCA, by ensuring that they are regularly cleaned. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, ducts that are poorly insulated or sealed will likely contribute to high energy bills. Blocked ducts are another contributing factor to higher than necessary heating bills.
Good for the health of your home, and you
Clean air is also important for our health. If air ducts are blocked, or dirty, the air quality in our homes can be compromised. Having your HVAC system professionally cleaned should be part of your regular home maintenance routine.
Dun-Rite Vac will do the job right
We start the process of giving you cleaner air by scrubbing the main ducts with Predictor Air Whip, a NADCA-approved tool. If needed we can remove the main ducting in order to clean the ducts thoroughly.
The cleaning process is an important part of maintaining your home
We remove the main blower fan in the furnace and clean it using air pressure to ensure that the fan is blowing the maximum amount of cubic feet of air per minute (CFM). This cleaning increases the efficiency of the system, saving money on both costly repairs and wasted energy.
If the air ducts in your home are layered with particles of debris, such as dust, the HVAC system’s ability to heat or cool your home is decreased. This means that it takes more energy for the HVAC system to heat or cool your home. The more energy used, the more money your energy bill will cost.
Cut down on repair costs
Cleaning your HVAC system on a regular basis will help ensure that it will operate properly, making it more efficient. Having a clean system can also help reduce repair costs. HVAC systems that are poorly maintained and rarely cleaned can break down faster than systems that are taken care of. This is because buildups of dirt, dust and other small particles shorten the overall lifespan of the HVAC system, which can lead to expensive repairs which can be prevented with regularly scheduled maintenance and cleaning.
Ensure your appliances last
All heating systems require maintenance and cleaning to ensure that they run smoothly and efficiently. In furnaces, the heating coils can also get dirty, and restrict the air that goes through them. By removing the main blow fan, the coils can be retrieved and cleaned. Making them both more efficient, and reducing the risk of having your heating system stop working in the middle of winter.
Get prepared for Winter
To ensure that you, and your home are prepared for the colder months, ensure that all of your maintenance and cleaning needs are done professionally, efficiently and correctly.
