Colorado Springs Furnace Maintenance
Every smart homeowner knows about the value of preventive maintenance, especially when the weather changes. Winterizing your home is always a good idea to prevent inconvenient furnace breakdowns during a cold, snowy Colorado Springs winter. Your checklist should include seasonal duct cleaning, vent cleaning and maintenance from the professional team at Affordable Plumbing, Heat & Electrical.
Why Get HVAC Maintenance Before Winter?
Getting duct cleaning and maintenance may not be first on your mind when it comes to home winterization, but you may not have thought about all the benefits of getting a professional cleaning done in the fall. If you want to ride out this winter in comfort, think about the following reasons this service is so essential.
Makes Heating More Efficient
When your air ducts and vents are clean, you’ll enjoy better airflow throughout your Colorado Springs home. Your system will be free of blockages from dust buildup, allowing your HVAC system to use less effort in heating your space. Not only will your home be more comfortable, but you’ll put less wear and tear on your HVAC system during the colder months.
Removes Common Health Hazards
Professional duct and air vent cleaning can identify and remove any issues that could pose a threat to your family’s health. Regular maintenance will prevent the buildup of mold, mildew and allergens within your vents, and help remove these types of hazards from circulating within your home. This is especially important if any member of your family has respiratory problems or is more susceptible to illness.
Improves Indoor Air Quality
The air quality in your home may be worse than the air quality outdoors, thanks to pet dander, pollutants and substances called volatile organic compounds that are found in household cleaning products, furniture, pesticides, perfumes and more. If your ducts become clogged, it will be harder for them to filter dust, allergens and chemicals out of the air, making your home less breathable throughout the winter. Your HVAC system will begin recycling these unhealthy particles into the airflow, and since you spend more time indoors during colder weather, your allergy and asthma symptoms will worsen.
A Cleaner Home
Most homeowners wait until springtime to give their home a deep clean. However, if you neglect to get your ducts and vents cleared before winter, you’ll be more likely to have dust buildup in your home. A routine cleaning in the fall may mean you will have to sweep, dust and vacuum your house less often in the winter.
