As the temperature continues to rise in Jacksonville and all of Northeast Florida, chances are your air conditioner has already kicked it up a notch and is running in high gear! Think of your air conditioner like your car. A car needs regular maintenance to continue running efficiently. Air duct cleaning is a service that can extend the life of your air conditioner and save you a lot of money now and in the future.
Regular filter replacement is always recommended in order to keep your air conditioner running smoothly, but your system gets dirty with every day use and unfortunately your air ducts are the perfect hiding place to collect dirt, dust, and allergens. The dust and dirt are filled with air pollutants and contaminants that cause your system to work harder. Over time this will decrease the life of your system as well as making your electric bill increase and in some cases cause it to skyrocket!
Here are some signs that you may need your air ducts cleaned:
HAS YOUR ELECTRIC BILL INCREASED?
Is your electric bill higher than normal even though you are changing your filter routinely as recommended? Heating and air costs are usually predictable from year to year. If you notice a spike in cost that doesn’t involve your electric company, your air ducts may be to blame. As dust and dirt get trapped in your air ducts the air will not flow properly out of the vents. You may even notice that one room or bathroom gets more air flow through the vents than others. If this is the case then you need your air ducts cleaned. When the air is not flowing evenly through the ducts, it is causing your system to run harder to keep up which means more money to run your system. This can also decrease the lifespan of your unit and cause other problems to occur.
It isn’t always the dust and debris in the ducts that can cause a rise in your electric bill. Any leaks in the ducts can also cause your system to run harder in turn causing more energy to be used. Our top-rated technicians will not only remove harmful contaminants from the duct work but also rule out any costly leaks.
DOES YOUR HOME GET DUSTY RIGHT AFTER YOU CLEAN? Why is there so much dust?
Not many of us enjoy the task of dusting our home. In my home it is the most complained about chore among my kids! Once it is completed there is definitely a satisfaction or sense of relief. Once you sit down to enjoy your glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and bask in your accomplishment of finally being dust free and then it happens, you notice a fresh layer of dust on your newly cleaned china..(gross), you may need to have your air ducts cleaned.
Even the cleanest homes can have dust, dirt, pet dander, and all sorts of harmful contaminants lingering in the air ducts. Look at the vents on the ceiling of your home. Do you notice any dirt or dust that looks like it has been blown out of the vent onto your ceiling? If you have been changing your filters regularly then this is caused from build up in your air ducts. This is costing you money. The air being pushed through the ducts is having to go through the dirt and dander that is built up in your ducts which causes your system to run harder and increases your energy usage.
Major renovations or construction in your home can also wreak havoc on your AC. Remodeling can be extremely messy. All of the debris and dust that got kicked up when knocking out that wall to your beautiful new kitchen wall is now in your air ducts. We are talking triple the amount of dust, dander, and dirt that comes into your home naturally. An air filter can only hold so much of those contaminants.
