We know how annoying it can be to clean your air ducts, but you can be living with more than just learning in your home. A dirty air duct can not only be dangerous for your respiratory health, but it can also make your HVAC system work harder than it needs to, and that means a higher energy bill. Here are some of the reasons you should maintain your air ducts and the benefits you can reap.

Cleaning Your Air Filters

Whether you like to do it or not, you should clean and replace your HVAC systems air filters at least every two months to avoid an excess of dust and allergens building up. A deity air filter can cause loads of allergens and nasty particles like mold to blow throughout your home. Dirty air filters will wreak havoc on your indoor air quality, and prolonged exposure to allergens can make your repository system feel overworked for no reason. Keep in mind that a dirty air filter leads to uneven cooling or heating in homes, making you need to leave your heating or cooling on twice as long, which leads to higher energy bills. So save yourself the headache and clean or replace your air filters ahead of time.

Maintaining Your Air Ducts

Cleaning your air filters is an essential part of air duct maintenance, but next comes keeping an eye out for your air ducts themselves.
