Are you determined to save every penny you can? Do you think you’ve made your home as efficient as possible? While your Sarasota, Florida, home may be more efficient than some of your neighbors’, if you haven’t had your ducts cleaned, then you could still be paying more in utility costs than you need to. This spring, turning down your heat isn’t the only thing that will save you money every month. A thorough duct cleaning will remove any potential hindrance that could be putting strain on your HVAC system and reducing efficiency.

Why Get a Duct Cleaning?

Have you ever neglected to dust off a bookshelf for a few months? Were you disgusted when you ran your finger along the wood and discovered a  coating of dust? In addition to that bookshelf, dust and dirt collect in your duct system, maybe not at the rate that your bookshelf accumulates dust, but it’s easier to forget dust collection in your HVAC system.

Anything, even dust, that can potentially inhibit airflow will put strain on the system, which reduces HVAC efficiency and raises utility costs. Not only does dust and dirt collection make it harder for your system to do its job, it may also make it harder for you to do yours by reducing indoor air quality and affecting your health.

Benefits of Duct Cleaning

A thorough duct cleaning by a licensed HVAC contractor will make it easier for air to pass from your system to your home. Your unit will run smoother, and your utility bills will be lower. A regular duct cleaning also gives a technician the opportunity to catch any other problems with your ducts, such as leaks, before they become greater issues.

Duct cleaning may not be the first cost-reducing task that you can think of, but its benefits will pay off in reduced utility costs and a healthier home. To schedule your duct cleaning, call Custom Air and Plumbing at 888-856-4507.
