Dealing with jaw-dropping energy bills? We feel your pain! That said, we also know it’s possible to reduce them, but only if you take the appropriate measures. At Dust Doctors, we know routine HVAC cleaning is essential, not only to maintain your HVAC efficiency but also to create the healthiest indoor air quality possible. If you’re curious about what measures you should take to lighten your monthly bill burden and breathe easier at home, below, you’ll find three of our best recommendations.

Professional Air Duct Cleaning

You change your HVAC filter at regular intervals, right? Well, your ducts deserve the same attention! We get it, you probably aren’t pondering your ductwork day and night, but if you’re struggling with high energy bills, it’s time to start thinking about the role your ducts play in your HVAC system.

When they’re caked in dust and grime, your ducts cannot transport air efficiently throughout your home. Perhaps worse, when air flows through the ductwork, it continually stirs up dust and tiny particles and forces them into the air filter, which clogs it much faster than normal. Bottom line? Dirty ductwork congests your HVAC system and reduces its efficiency. If you’re looking to lower those energy bills, professional duct cleaning can help you do it.

Furnace Cleaning

Did you know you should have an annual furnace inspection and cleaning? If that’s a no, we’re guessing your furnace could use some professional attention. Routine furnace cleaning helps boost your HVAC system’s efficiency by:

●        Removing dust and dirt that can travel into your air ducts and clog your filter

●        Easing the burden on the system’s blower motor

●        Reducing the amount of power needed to force air through the system

●        Decreasing stress on the system’s heat exchanger

●        Lessening the likelihood of unexpected breakdowns and repairs

One thing to note: Although professional furnace cleaning can help improve your system’s efficiency, the service doesn’t address the burner component or include a tuneup. To really give your system an efficiency boost, you should also contact your licensed HVAC tech to perform recommended system maintenance.

A/C Cleaning

Last but definitely not least, if you’ve never had your air conditioner thoroughly cleaned, professional A/C cleaning can make all the difference. Air conditioners are notoriously dirty, primarily because they contain significant moisture, and that moisture often breeds mold, mildew, and other less-than-pleasant particles.

When air passes through the apparatus and into your home’s ductwork, it stirs up those hazardous particles and carries them indoors. Unfortunately, this phenomenon doesn’t just slow down your system; it can have deleterious consequences for your health, too. For healthy indoor air quality and a more efficient HVAC system, you should have a professional A/C cleaning service tend to your unit once per year.
