The air conditioner is the heart of your cooling system, but some of you have likely had a heart doctor tell you, ”Hey watch the cholesterol. I’m worried about your arteries.” Sanborn’s AIr Conditioning & Heating is not making light of that serious situation, but there is an analogy to your HVAC system that will make a point.
Sanborn’s believes the air ducts in your home are a little bit like your arteries. If they are dirty it affects the efficiency of your air conditioner or furnace, just like your arteries can affect the efficiency of your heart. It really makes sense. According to the experts, leaky HVAC ducts or improper duct insulation can cut the efficiency of your heating or cooling system by up to 30%.
When it happens to your arteries, your heart has to work harder and you might have trouble walking up a hill or doing physical labor. When it happens to your furnace ducts, your system has to work harder to keep the home comfortable. No matter how efficient your air conditioner or furnace is, you will be wasting money every month on higher utility bills.
If you suspect you have a problem, call Sanborn’s Air Conditioning & Heating for expert help. There are three ways our technicians will attack the problem:
- Testing: They will make sure the original installation was done correctly to meet industry standards. The ducts must be the correct size for your system. It’s the only way to be sure the proper volume of air is able to flow to all areas of your home
- Sealing & Insulating: Those two words are pretty self-explanatory, but the process is very important. Sanborn’s technicians are trained to find any locations where conditioned air is escaping before it can be used to cool or heat your home and sealing the leaks tightly. Duct insulation is absolutely critical in attics, crawl spaces, and even some basements.
- Duct Cleaning: The air simply can’t flow smoothly through the ductwork if the ducts are dirty or have obstructions. The extra advantage is cleaner air. Removing the accumulated dust and dirt means less of it is blowing around your home.
We can assure you of this: The cost of cleaning your air ducts and fixing any leaks is nothing compared to the cost of cleaning your heart arteries, not to mention a whole lot less stressful. Duct cleaning services as part of your regular AC service from Sanborn’s Air Conditioning & Heating will assure your unit continues to run at top efficiency.
