Now that spring is officially here, you will start to think about doing some spring cleaning. You may think that you should clean the ceiling fans, sweep the garage floor or maybe wash the baseboards. Many homeowners don’t think about cleaning the HVAC units. HVAC companies like Medford Wellington Service have seen units where it looks like they have never been cleaned. This could end up wasting money and energy so we recommend that you clean your heating and air conditioning units every spring.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that between 25 and 40 percent of the energy used to power your heating and air conditioning is wasted. When contaminants get into your system, it can cause it to work harder than it needs to. Even if a filter is being used, your system can get dirty both inside and out. When you have a clean HVAC system, it doesn’t have to work as hard and you will save a lot of money and energy.
When you have poor air quality in your home, you start to see it and it negatively impacts your health. Because the air is re-circulated multiple times a day, many contaminants get into your HVAC system. Things like dander, dust and chemicals can build up and be blown out with the air. After cleaning your HVAC system, you will notice much cleaner air quality as well and start feeling better because you are breathing in cleaner air.
At Medford Wellington, we believe that you should add cleaning your HVAC system to your list of spring cleaning items. Call us today for any advice.
