Dust cleaning is one of those things you may not think of, but doing it every so often may help to reduce the amount of dust in your home. Although this seems like a health benefit only, it actually has many other perks. For instance, it may even keep more money in your pocket.
Dust and debris blow out and affect the health of you and your family. The dust and debris may also be costing you extra money on your heating and cooling bills. Although a small amount of build-up won't have much of an effect on your energy bills, as it continues to build up, it prevents the air from flowing or at least a portion of the air that should be flowing through. This means you'll pay more money to keep your house at a comfortable temperature since the unit will keep running to cool or heat the place. Additionally, you may not realize it, but getting your ducts cleaned regularly can help to identify leaks in your ductwork that are costing you even more money. In fact, these cracks can cause you to lose between 20 to 30 percent of your heat or cool air.
In addition to saving you money on your energy bills because the unit won't have to work as hard, getting a cleaning from the Dust Doctors will keep your unit running for years to come. The dirt, pet dander and other residue in your ducts will harm the unit. Not only does it make it work harder, which is a cause premature failure, it can clog parts on the unit and cause them to break or the entire unit to shut down. A majority of systems that fail do so because of dirt and dust in them. For instance, the fan that's on the inside of the air handler keeps the heat exchanger from overheating. When there's dirt in the fan, it reduces how much it cools the heat exchanger. In fact, it can reduce how much air is circulating to the heat exchanger by 50 percent. It's also the reason a majority of cracks in heat exchangers occur. This will save you money since you won't have to do as many repairs on the unit. Not to mention, you won't have to replace the unit as soon.
