Central heaters and air conditioners use a system of ducts to blow warm or cool air through your home. Over time, dust and dirt can accumulate inside the ducts, which then gets blown through your home whenever you turn on the heat or AC. This can impact your homes indoor air quality – increasing the amount of allergens in your home – as well as reducing the efficiency of your HVAC system in general. San Antonio duct cleaning experts are extra important because because of our hot and humid climate, which can lead to a lot of moisture and growth in your ducts. “How often should I schedule duct cleaning for my house?” you ask. The answer depends on many things.
In the first place, you should consider how much dust and debris your family brings in on an average day. If you spend a lot of time working outdoors, you probably bring dust in when you arrive home. Similarly, if you have kids or pets who spend a lot of time outside, they’re apt to bring some of the great outdoors with them. All of this means scheduling duct cleaning more often than you might otherwise.
Seasonal energy bills may play a hand in it as well. In most cases, your energy bills will go up in the summer time, when you end up using your air conditioning more. Scheduling a duct cleaning before those bills kick in can improve your system’s efficiency and help cut into the costs of keeping your home cool. A duct cleaning service can also spot more serious issues related to energy bills, such as the presence of leaks of fissures in the system. You can then schedule repairs before the summer gets underway rather than paying more than you should to maintain a cool home.
