How Cleaning Your Air Ducts Extends The Life Of Your HVAC
The truth is no one wants to have to spend money on HVAC repairs if they can avoid it. That’s why we stress the importance of annual maintenance and seasonal checkups. There is evidence that keeping up with maintenance, specifically cleaning your air ducts, can help extend the life of your HVAC system.
The truth is that if you neglect changing your air filters regularly, the likelihood of there being build up in your air ducts increases greatly. Just think about it, if you haven’t checked your ducts in quite some time, you really have no idea what might be hiding in them. And if your home has issues with humidity, there could be mold or mildew growing in your air ducts. Not only is that bad for the life of your HVAC system, it’s terrible for your family’s health.
Neglecting your air ducts could lead to air flow restrictions. Any blockage in your air ducts can cause your HVAC system to work harder to circulate air and cool your home. On average, Floridians use their air conditioners more frequently than residents of most other states. As a result, the HVAC system in your Florida home has more wear and tear on it than the average HVAC system. Any additional stress on the system can cause it to malfunction sooner. That’s why keeping up with maintenance and cleaning your air ducts can help extend the life of your HVAC system.
