To really cover all your spring cleaning bases, get your ducts in order by scheduling a duct inspection with California Energy Services!
The Importance of Duct Cleaning
Many homeowners don’t realize just how important it is to maintain a system of clean ductwork within the home. A home’s ducts can be viewed as its lungs, so it stands to reason that things can never operate at peak performance when dirt, dust, mold, and other contaminants are present. Dirty ducts not only negatively affect your home’s indoor air quality; they’ll also adversely affect your system’s overall efficiency.
In the long term, you’ve got to think about what dirty ductwork is doing to the health and wellness of you and your family. Take the short term into consideration, and ductwork that is clogged can easily contribute to increased energy costs. Either way, you owe it to yourself to make the necessary changes.
Is it Time for Duct Sealing?
While duct cleaning will make a great deal of difference for your home’s efficiency and indoor air quality, it doesn’t usually get to the root of the issue. More often than not, homeowners who conduct routine cleanings have to keep up on them consistently; buildup will just come back otherwise. The deeper, more lasting solution to this problem is duct sealing.
Duct sealing prevents dust, dirt and mold from becoming issues in the first place. It’s simply the most effective route to great indoor air quality. The long-term savings that duct sealing accumulates can help to save you hundreds of dollars each year on energy bills.
Start with a Home Energy Audit
If you’re interested in tackling ductwork issues, the best place to start is with a home energy audit. A home energy audit will help to ensure that you know exactly what you’re dealing with and how to best approach whatever problems may exist. It gives you a complete view of your home as a system, allowing you and a trained CES professional to come up the best course of action to take.
