The Importance of HVAC System Cleaning
Your HVAC system maintains air quality and keeps your environment comfortable all year round in all seasons of the year. A proper functioning system is a balance of heating, ventilation and air conditioning all working together efficiently. Your HVAC unit directly affects your indoor air quality and respiratory health.
When properly working and under a maintenance program, it improves indoor air quality and keeps you comfortable in your environment. On the other hand, neglecting your HVAC system can harm your indoor air quality significantly. Inadequate maintenance can result in broken parts, poor indoor air quality, mold growth, fire hazards, the spreading of pollutants into the air such as dust, bacteria, and allergens. Pests such as mice can also get in your ducts and contaminate it with droppings, which is why we partnered with a Rhode Island pest control company for ongoing consulting and support. With regular maintenance and cleaning, you can save money on energy bills, keep your indoor air clean, and safeguard the wellbeing of your household or employees.
Proactive maintenance results in a more efficient system and cleaner indoor air. We recommend an annual tune-up twice a year (once for heating, once for cooling).
Signs you need your HVAC System Cleaned
If you’ve been noticing a few things in your home, it might be time to give your HVAC system some love. First off, are you experiencing inconsistent temperatures throughout your house? If some rooms are icy while others feel like a sauna, your HVAC might need a little tuning. And speaking of temperature, has your energy bill been sneaking higher?
A dirty HVAC system has to work harder, which can lead to increased energy consumption and higher bills. Oh, and have you been hearing strange noises—clanks, rattles, or wheezes—coming from your vents or system? That’s a sign it could use a checkup. Lastly, if it’s been a year or more since your last maintenance, consider scheduling a cleaning to keep things running smoothly and efficiently.
