If you are ready to increase energy efficiency for your property, cleaning the air ducts is a great place to start.
When owning and managing a residential or commercial property, the question of energy efficiency will rear its eco-friendly head at some point. Not only are sustainable living techniques a great move for the environment, but they also keep money in your pocket and protect residential health. Here’s what you need to know about how to increase energy efficiency.
Improving Indoor Air Quality
You can’t put too high a priority on the air you breathe. Day in and day out, indoor air quality should measure up and provide a clean, safe respiratory experience. Especially for people sensitive to allergens, indoor air quality is an essential element in daily life.
Having the air ducts in your building or home cleaned regularly is a great way to ensure the absence of common irritants like dust, pollen, and mold. In addition to this health benefit, cleaning the air ducts also means your HVAC system will be running more efficiently. When debris builds up in those ducts, the unit has to work harder to push air along and deliver it throughout the area. This means wasted energy and higher operating costs that could be easily avoided.
Reducing Air Leaks
Having your air ducts cleaned? You might as well go ahead and have the sealant inspected as well. You air ducts could be squeaky clean, but if they aren’t airtight they could be responsible for high utility bills and unsatisfactory heating/cooling experience.
When you have air leaks in your home, it means conditioned air is escaping and outside air (including all the common allergens it carries) is seeping into your indoor environment. Fix these problems and you will be hitting two birds with one stone, resulting in cleaner air and increased energy efficiency.
