Reduce Energy Waste and Pollutants Too!
Air Conditioning Efficiency Increased with Air Duct Cleaning
Who remembers a parent or grandparent telling you to shut the window or the door, adding “we’re not paying to air condition the whole neighborhood!” Simply, leaks contribute to less air conditioning efficiency. In addition, dirt, dust and debris, such as pet dander and pollen, enter our home’s ventilation systems every day and accumulate in the ductwork.
As contaminants circulate through the system, the filter traps them. A clogged filter forces your air conditioner to work harder.
A Harder Working Air Conditioner is a Bad Thing
When an air conditioner works harder, it uses more energy. Therefore, using more energy means your utility bill will be higher. Air conditioning efficiency is decreased every time your AC unit has to work harder to overcome the stress from the contaminants being pushed through the system. Naturally, this “overwork” puts excess wear and tear on the air conditioner and shortens its lifespan.
Duct Cleaning Helps You Breathe Easier
When ductwork is cleaned, fewer pollutants travel throughout your home and business. This helps everyone, especially those with allergies, asthma, COPD or other respiratory illnesses. Professionally cleaning your ducts improves your indoor air quality as well as improving air conditioning efficiency.
In Georgia and Alabama, we have a lot of humidity. Humidity plus dark and dirty air ducts make a breeding ground for mold. If you detect musty odors or even see mildew or mold inside registers, call for professional cleaning right away.
Professionals have the ability to access even the most difficult ducts. Energy Savers employs NATE-certified technicians who handle your cleaning with respect and care. They diligently protect household surfaces. Finally, they clean up when they’re done.
Duct Sealing Takes Air Conditioning Efficiency Higher
For the ultimate in reducing energy waste, call a professional for duct sealing today. Energy Savers uses Aeroseal technology, which creates an average of 87 percent reduction in leakage. Reduce the loss of warmed and cooled air to the wrong places in, out or in the unconditioned spaces of a home, such as an attic or crawlspace with Aeroseal duct sealing. Room temperatures can vary up to ten degrees in a home with leaky ducts.
Once sealed, hard to cool or heat rooms will be more comfortable and have more even temperatures. Your air conditioning efficiency will see peak levels. In addition, sealed ducts better control the humidity. Less humidity means greater comfort and less chance of mold, mildew and dust mites.
Additional Tips to Improve Air Conditioning Efficiency
Homeowners should regularly schedule preventative maintenance for your air conditioner or heat pump. During a tune-up, your technician will inspect, clean, test and lubricate all components. He or she will note any signs of overuse and make adjustments or recommendations for peak air conditioning efficiency.
Check your air filter monthly and change or clean it as necessary. Most filters need to be cleaned or changed every one to three months. However, if you have multiple pets or live in a high pollen area, you may need to do it monthly.
So, if your air conditioner is struggling, your energy bill has spiked or you’ve reached your repair budget limit, call for a free estimate. Newer models use technology capable of 95-98 percent efficiency, drastically reducing energy use in some cases, from units only a decade old.
