Cleaning your air ducts can save money on your utility bill

Posted on 8 April, 2011 at 14:33
As a technician that works on homes, I am constantly looking at broken and damaged air ducts-sometimes they are completely disconnected.  If you have an older house, with a crawl space or basement, it's a good idea to check the connections and the dampers to make sure they are set in the right position.

Occasionally I get a call from a customer who has dust everywhere in the house.  This usually means there is a problem with a filter or in some cases a broken cold air return in the attic-pulling all the loose insulation to the air handler.

A dirty evaporator coil can cause your energy bill to soar double!germs live in air ducts and dust contains allergens and dust mitesIf you get either of these two situations repaired, you will save a lot of money.  It's worth having your air ducts cleaned out because all the construction materials from the past have accumulated there...add the 6 pounds of normal dust and dander.  Well, you have a mess on your hands.
