How Duct Cleaning Can Help You Save on Energy Costs

by | Jun 7, 2018 | HVAC Blog

If your Tucson, AZ home has a central air conditioner, furnace or another forced-air system, the ducts play an important role in distributing conditioned air throughout the building. It’s important to have clean ducts. Duct cleaning can make a big difference in your utility costs. Read on to find out how it works and how it’ll benefit you.

Understanding Air Duct Cleaning

When you hire us to clean your air ducts, our technicians will come to your home and carefully scrub the ducts with special brushes designed to dislodge dust, dirt and debris without damaging the ducts themselves. We then use a high-powered vacuum cleaner to blow away the debris, leaving the ducts clean. In general, we recommend having your ducts cleaned every three to 10 years, depending on pets, smoking and general home cleanliness.

How Air Duct Cleaning Affects Utility Bills

The simplest way duct cleaning improves your utility bills is by removing blockages that can reduce your central air conditioner’s or furnace’s energy efficiency. When the ducts are clean, the system does not have to work as hard to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, which means less energy is needed.

Over time, having your ducts cleaned can save you even more by reducing overall wear and tear on your system. Dirt, dust and other debris in the duct system can cause your forced-air systems to wear down, hurting energy efficiency and causing higher utility bills over time. Keeping your duct system clean is an important part of overall system maintenance, which in turn improves energy efficiency and lowers your utility bills. Because of its impact on energy efficiency, system maintenance and indoor air quality, air duct cleaning is one of the best investments you can make in the future of your home.
