How Your Ductwork Works

Unless you own a ductless system, your heater and air conditioner both use your ductwork system. The ducts in your home are a series of metal or plastic tubes that deliver the air that your heater has warmed to the vents throughout the house. If these ducts encounter problems such as a major blockage, they cannot deliver the temperate air you are asking for, making your home uncomfortably cool.

Why Dirty Ducts Affect Your HVAC System

As we just mentioned. a problem with your ducts can have an impact on your heaters ability to do its job. Specifically dirty ductwork that has layers of dust, dirt, fur, and other debris can become a hindrance when it comes to delivering warm air. This is because all of that build-up will reduce the amount of space that the air can pass through and, much like a traffic jam, will slow things down a lot. Not only does this mean that you won’t get as much warm air as you want, it also means that your heater will have to work a lot harder to do its job. Ultimately, while dirty ductwork may not seem like much, it is an unassuming problem that has the ability to reduce your system’s energy efficiency and your comfort.

How Duct Cleaning Services Help

Duct cleaning services are around for a reason. For one, these services get all that dust and debris out of your ducts which prevents it from being blown into your home. Two, it clears your ducts of the build up which hinders airflow and can impede your heater’s energy efficiency. Duct cleaning services are a win-win for both you and your HVAC unit.

“Is Duct Cleaning Something I Can Do Myself?”
