Ductwork plays an important role in the effectiveness and efficiency of the HVAC system in your Fort Myers, FL home. Here are five indications that you need duct cleaning service:
1. Energy Bills Are Out Of Control
You could be losing a significant amount of money every month through ductwork leaks. Many homes lose up to 30 percent of treated air through leaky ducts. Duct sealing can save you money by preventing these energy losses.
2. Indoor Air Quality Is Suffering
Fine dust is constantly circulating throughout your HVAC system. Dander, dirt and hair sticks to the dust and forms a thick mat where allergens and microbes can multiply. These particles can make allergies and respiratory conditions worse.
3. Family Members Are Getting Sick
When dirty ducts harbor microbes like viruses, spores, and bacteria, your family will probably feel the effects. These microbes can literally make you sick. They can also cause symptoms like nausea, sore throat, headaches, dizziness, and lethargy.
4. You Forget to Change Your Air Filters or to Schedule HVAC Maintenance
When these tasks go undone, ductwork can become clogged with dirt and debris. That makes it harder for heated and cooled air to circulate in your home. Your HVAC works harder than it should, and utility bills go up.
5. Your HVAC Isn’t Keeping You Comfortable
A top-of-the-line HVAC system won’t heat or cool your home effectively if your ducts are clogged with dust. It will, however, cost you more to operate, and it will have a shorter lifespan.
Your ducts should be cleaned and sealed every several years. Dirty ducts increase the likelihood of repairs and make it harder to keep your home clean. Learn more about the benefits of air duct cleaning. Visit Certified Heating and Cooling Inc. or call us at (239) 205-8342 for more information.
