We’ve entered the last few days of summer here in CT. For many homeowners, the time to cover the pool, turn off the A/C and make preparations for winter weather has come. The unpredictable and often brutal winters that plague the northeast make having a fully functional heating system in your home a must.
While you schedule those important HVAC cleanings to get your system in order in advance of the cold don’t forget to also have the air ducts in your home cleaned. Doing so will give your home a nice fresh start to the season and remove any dust, debris or allergens that have accumulated in the ducts over time.
Here are some of the reasons to have your air ducts cleaned ahead of heating season.
Clean Air to Breathe
The issue with dust and dirt in the home is that before you have a chance to sweep or vacuum it away, it’s already in the air and making its way into the air ducts. Here it circulates throughout the home over the course of the day and enters the air in particle form as you and your family breathe it in.
To address the issue, a duct cleaning service that uses tools and specialized techniques to reach debris and remove it is necessary. As an added bonus, having your homes air ducts cleaned can help those in the home already suffering from respiratory issues like allergies or other autoimmune disorders.
Savings on Heating & Energy Bills
Another reason to have your home’s HVAC and air ducts serviced before the start of heating season is because an HVAC system that’s clogged up with contaminants is going to have to work extra hard to run. This extra work adds up to more dollars spent on energy usage and a greater waste of pricey heating sources.
If you’re ready to have your home running clean and efficiently this winter, give Preferred HD a call. Our “Source Removal Process” utilizes customized agitation tools inserted into vent openings to loosen dust, dirt, and other accumulated contaminants. We also get to the interior ductwork and blast it with almost 200 PSI of air pressure and use a vacuum hose almost a foot in diameter attached to the duct vents to suction out the loosened debris. It’s our goal to make sure that every corner is left clean and that nothing makes its way into your home’s interior.
