The dream of owning property, be it your home or a commercial building, can help you build equity. However, owning property has its responsibilities. Poor airflow can lead to inefficient cooling and heating systems. A dryer vent cleaning Arlington, we often find that property owners who have inefficient heating and cooling systems that increase your energy bill while placing unnecessary stress on your HVAC unit. How can you improve the airflow and efficiency of your HVAC unit?
Clean the filter
A clogged filter can be a major cause of poor airflow in your house. Air filters catch dust, allergens, and other particles in the air that you shouldn’t be breathing in, but if they are left uncleaned for a long period of time or the home is particularly dusty and dirty, they can clog.
If you notice an increase in your energy bills over time, it may be necessary to change your air filters. If your cooling and heating units are working harder to maintain a room’s temperature, clogged filters can cause them to work harder. This can increase energy consumption and strain the unit.
You should clean your air filters at least once every 90 days. However, homes that are extremely dusty may require more frequent cleaning.
Check for leaky ducts
You may also notice poor airflow in your air ducts due to a leak. Properly sealing air ducts when they are installed is essential for them to work efficiently and effectively. Leakage in air ducts could allow air to escape and make its way to the vents. This can lead to an increase in your energy bills and a feeling of warmth or cold inside your home. It is important to ensure that your air ducts have been properly sealed and fitted. It is a good idea to have an expert inspect your air ducts at least once a year to ensure maximum airflow.
Clean your air ducts, and air vents
Dirty air ducts and dirty air filters can make your cooling and heating systems less efficient. Dusty air ducts may clog or cover your air filters and lower the quality of the air you inhale by adding more dust, dander, and allergens to the air.
HVAC maintenance scheduled
If you haven’t called our team for preventive maintenance yet this season, schedule an appointment right away. Even though it might not seem important, especially if you have a new air conditioner, an annual tune-up can make a huge difference in how your HVAC system works.
Our team conducts an annual tuneup. We inspect the HVAC system from top to bottom, clean out any dirt and look for problems that might slow down your system. The air filter is also changed. This can cause airflow to be restricted during peak hours and can get very clogged. During periods of heavy usage, the filter should be changed every 30 days and replaced every 90 days for the rest.
The ductwork that is too small or too big
Your ducts are channels that heat or cool airflow to the vents. They are what bring the air into your home. The ducts should not be too large. This will cause the air to get lost as it travels to the vents. The HVAC system won’t be able to push the air out if the ducts become too small. Your airflow will be affected by improperly sized or too large ducts.
