An HVAC system is a complete system that provides heating, cooling and ventilation for your home. Maintaining your HVAC system is important to ensure that it is always working efficiently, and part of your regular maintenance tasks includes cleaning. You want to clean the furnace, ducts and AC unit, which collect dust and can hamper the efficiency of your HVAC. Here ae some of the cleaning tasks that need to be done to ensure your system is working efficiently:
1. Cleaning the Ducts to Keep Dust and Allergens Down
The ducts of your AC system circulate all the air in your home, and have a filter that catches a lot of the dust particles. The filter only captures some of the dust, and eventually, the system begins to have a buildup of dust inside the ductwork. Every time the AC or heating kicks on, this dust, full of allergens is circulated all over your home. It eventually gets back to the mechanical parts too; where it can lead to problems. To prevent dust from causing a problem, have the AC ducts cleaned every few years, which will also help cut down on the allergens in your home.
2. Cleaning the Furnace for Efficient Heating and To Reduce Odors
In addition to the air conditioner, your furnace will also need to be cleaned. Have you ever turned the heating on for the first time during the winter season and noticed a strange smell? It is a musty burnt smell that comes from the dirt and dust that has collected inside the furnace. Having the furnace clean will help to reduce the unpleasant odors and problems that come from a buildup of debris in the furnace. A clean furnace will also work more efficiently.
3. The AC Cleaning Tasks That Help to Reduce Repairs and Air Borne Allergens
The air conditioner is one of the components of an HVAC system that is vulnerable to problems to dirt and debris. The dust inside duct work can cause a problems with allergies during the spring and summer months, and cleaning will help give you relief. Dust also gets inside the condensing unit and on the coils, which can cause freezing and damage to the compressor inside your AC, have a technician check your AC and clean it when needed to prevent these problems.
Cleaning the components of your HVAC will ensure that the system is working efficiently all year. Contact a general contractor like SBL Contractors LTD to help with some of the cleaning tasks that need to be done for your system.Share
