Most homeowners today will have the air ducts of their HVAC system cleaned to improve indoor air quality. However, what most individuals don’t realize is that air duct cleaning can also play a significant role in overall energy efficiency of your HVAC system.
It makes sense that if you have a variety of debris in your ducts – from dust, lint and pet hair to bigger items from your last home renovation – that the system has to work harder to circulate air throughout the ducts to each room of your home. Air duct cleaning performed according to NADCA standards and protocol will thoroughly remove this debris saving your system extra effort and energy on a daily basis.
Another air duct cleaning issue that can negatively impact energy efficiency is air filter quality. Some air filters tend to clog more quickly. If you haven’t changed yours in a while or can’t remember the last time it was changed, it’s probably a good idea to change it. Dapper Ducts recommends changing your air filter monthly. A clogged air filter causes your HVAC system to work harder and use more energy when cooling or heating your home.
If you are researching air duct cleaning options for your home, be sure that the professional you hire is insured, licensed and accredited by the National Air Duct Cleaner’s Association (NADCA) as they are knowledgeable, and experienced on all aspects of air duct cleaning.
