Did you know that studies have shown that heating, ventilating and air conditioning account for approximately 30% of the energy used in the average home or small business.
In larger buildings, heating and air conditioning can account for almost half of the monthly energy bill.
“A build-up of .042 inches of dirt on a heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease of a heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system’s efficiency by 21%.” – EPA
To better understand, .042 inches of dirt is about the same thickness as your fingernail. This thin layer of particles decreases the HVAC system’s ability to properly cool down or heat up space. As a result, utility costs for both heating and cooling will be much higher.
In another study conducted by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), cleaning (lightly fouled) heating and cooling systems can result in energy savings of 11 percent, and cleaning (heavily-fouled) systems can yield even greater results.
That’s why the NADCA recommends residential properties should have their air ducts and system inspected and cleaned every 1-2 years. A more efficient air duct system reduces energy costs, saving you more money each month.
