The Importance of Regular Duct Inspections

The Importance of Regular Duct Inspections

Regular duct inspections are an important part of the maintenance routine for the HVAC system in your Largo, Florida, home. Dust and debris can build up in your ductwork and cause respiratory difficulties. Duct cleaning is not generally needed unless you see an abnormal accumulation of pollutants such as dust, or if someone in your home has serious respiratory problems. During routine maintenance, duct inspections will mainly involve checking for air leaks or damage to the ductwork. The following are three of the most important benefits of scheduling regular ductwork inspections with your local HVAC service company.

Added Energy Savings

Leaks and gaps in your home’s ductwork can allow heated or cooled air to escape, reducing the overall energy efficiency of your system. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, as much as 40 percent of the energy expended to heat and cool a typical home can be lost to leaks or lack of insulation. Taking steps to inspect and remedy these situations can add up to real savings over the course of a year.

Increased Longevity for Your HVAC System

Your home heating and cooling system requires regular maintenance to perform effectively, especially during extreme temperatures. One of the major benefits of cleaner ducts is the reduced air resistance and lower workload for your furnace and air conditioner system. This can help your HVAC system last longer and perform more efficiently in your home or business.
